Dark Sun was crafted based on Mark Holcomb's favourite sounds from the Andromeda Dynamic Delay and the Silver Lake Dynamic Reverb. Dark Sun combines a warm and clean digital delay algorithm with a lush Hall reverb, and the ability to route the two in just about any configuration you could want. And, you can shape the EQ of the effect, add saturation, or lush choral modulation, or use Dynamic Expression to control the mix of the effect with your playing.

The 4-position routing control switch can create dramatically different sounds depending on how it's set. Running delay first means new reverberations are created with each repeat while putting reverb first will create a less natural and more dramatic repeat of the reverb trail. Setting Delay and Reverb to the left and right channels allows you to use Dark Sun's two effects in stereo or as two separate pedals in one.

A complement of filters, gain, and modulation round out the feature set. Applied only to the wet signal, they can totally re-shape the character of the effect. Use the Low Pass Filter to soften and warm up the sound, or the High Pass Filter to cut big low-end repeats.

Dark Sun has 4 tap divisions available - quarter notes, dotted eighths, eighths, and triplets. You can set the tempo via the tap footswitch, Time control, or MIDI and the time can be displayed in milliseconds or beats per minute. It is fully MIDI capable, and features a micro-USB port for firmware updates and preset management.

I love this pedal. I can’t count how many times I’ve watched Mark Holcomb YouTube videos about the Dark Sun. But when I watched Rabea Massaad’s review I just decided to buy it. You’ll save a lot of tweaking time with this unite instead of having separately a reverb and a delay pedal for ambient effects etc. It sounds great right after the gate. You don’t have to spend 20 minutes to find something useable and honestly I had a hard time to find something too crazy and impossible to control which is pretty common on this category of multi digital - reverb/delay pedals. Plus: there are a few presets simulating Chorus and Tremolo which is great since I don’t usually play with this effects so If I need them, I can use these presets to make these effects even on a basic way. Only cons would be not being able to change the banks with the stomps. Only the presets A to D, unless you use a midi controller and the price is high. It is a great pedal but the price it’s a little over. Overall It’s a highly recommend pedal.
