The Avalanche Run was developed with one goal in mind: to take the floating ambient tones of EarthQuaker's Dispatch Master to the next level while still keeping it user friendly and refined.

The Avalanche Run is a dreamy sonic discovery device with up to 2 seconds of delay time and a lush reverb. It features complete control over delay time, repeats, mix and voice (with the tone control), as well as control over the reverb length and mix. It can run in one of 3 different modes: Normal, Reverse and Swell. In "Normal" mode, the Avalanche Run functions as a straightforward delay and reverb. In "Reverse" mode, the delay line is in reverse and the reverb remains in normal mode. In "Swell" mode, the Avalanche Run reacts to your picking dynamics and adds a volume swell to the entire signal path much like manually raising and lowering the volume of your guitar.

The Avalanche Run features an expression jack that can be assigned to one of six different controls using the EXP selector switch. It also features Tap Tempo with six different ratios accessed via the "Ratio" selector switch. The Avalanche Run can also be run in "True Bypass" mode or "Buffered Bypass" mode for trails, and features 5 different tail lengths including "Infinite" for lo-fi and continuously degrading pseudo-looping.

The Tap switch also has a few other cool secondary functions. While in Normal and Swell mode, you can send the Avalanche Run into self-oscillation by holding down the "Tap" footswitch. In Reverse, mode holding down the Tap switch will flip the delay back into Normal mode and return to Reverse mode once released!

Controls:
Top Row-
• Time: This controls the delay time and goes from 0ms to just under 2000ms.
• Repeats: Controls the regeneration of the delay, from zero repeats to near infinite.
• Tone: Controls the tone for the delay line only. Roll off highs to the left, roll off lows to the right and get a flat response in the middle.
• Mix: The is the volume control for the delay line. This blends in the wet with dry until 1 o'clock, 1 o'clock to 3 o'clock boosts the wet signal over the dry and 3 o'clock up brings down dry until it is fully wet when all the way up.
Bottom Row-
• Expression Jack Assign Switch: Use this switch to map the expression jack to one of the assigned controls.
• Decay: Controls the decay length of the reverb, short decay counterclockwise, long cavernous decay clockwise.
• Mix: This is the volume control for the reverb. Blends in the wet with dry until 1 O'clock, 1 O'clock to 3 O'clock boosts the wet signal over the dry and 3 O'clock up brings down dry until it is fully wet when all the way up.
• Ratio Selector Switch: Selects delay subdivisions when time is set by the "Tap" switch.
• Toggle Switch (Mode Selector): Both: This is the standard delay and reverb mode
- Reverse: This is reverse delay mode with standard reverb
- Swell: This is the volume swell mode

Specifications:
• Dimensions: 4.625 x 3.7 x 2.25 inches
• Power: EarthQuaker pedals take a standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. Pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies are recommended. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. Do not run at higher voltages!
• Current draw: 425 mA.

With the ability to blend in reverb and the ability to select and or tap timings, this incredible tool and its flexibility only slightly begins to describe its functionality. Haven't stopped playing it
