Strymon Brigadier dBucket delay
Destroying the Analog / Digital Divide.
In setting out to design the Brigadier, we decided to take a super powerful SHARC DSP and dedicate it to doing one thing and one thing only â?¦ delivering the best analog bucket brigade delay sound ever. As a result of having the entire DSP dedicated to doing one extremely high quality effect, we are able to concentrate on every last detail that makes an analog delay special. No stone has been left unturnede. Every single bucket is recreated in the Brigadier with our new dBucket algorithm. And, since were doing all of this without regular old bucket brigade chips, you get all the tone and none of the noise (unless of course you choose to add it back in with our exclusive bucket loss control, yes!). We feel like weve created something very special, and we hope you will too.
There are lots of analog delay modelers on the market, but most of them dont provide the feel of playing a true analog delay. The Brigadier nails it.

Hand crafted dBucket algorithm for highly accurate reproduction of every stage of an analog bucket brigade chip and the associated clock driver circuitry.
Bucket Loss control to control the amount of loss that occurs at each stage of the dBucket
Super low noise, high performance 24-bit 96kHz A/D and D/A converters w/ 115dB typical signal to noise
Analog dry path for a zero latency dry signal that is never converted to digital
High performance DSP stuffed into a compact form factor
Tap tempo footswitch
3 delay time modes: short, medium, long
Tap Tempo modes for quarter, dotted eighth, and eighth note triplets
Filter control for adjusting the tone of the delay repeats
TRUE BYPASS (electromechanical relay switching)
Selectable trails mode with high quality analog buffered bypass
+/- 3dB adjustable boost or cut when the effect is engaged
Expression pedal input with selectable control over any knob parameter
Powered with a standard 9V center negative DC supply. Compatible with all major DC supply brands. Current consumption 200mA
Premium analog front end and output section
No-nonsense user interface
Strong and lightweight green anodized aluminum chassis
Crafted with love in the USA
Medium delay mode repeats set for oscillation. A short G minor chord played into the delay, and then playing with the delay time to showcase the clock generation and feedback
Delay in medium mode first part is no bucket loss, then medium bucket loss, then full bucket loss to showcase the dBucket and companding technology
Moderate bucket loss with moderate modulation added to showcase the depth ofthe bucket with proper companding and clock generation
Single repeat delay with modulation and no bucket loss to showcase a U2-like rhythm with clarity and warmth
