Description

Stasis Leak is a 6HP 48kHz DSP effects module, providing a choice of stereo chorus, stereo plate reverb and tap tempo delay. Stasis Leak is based around a Belton ABE-FX sub board, which in turn is based around a Coolaudio V1000 chip.

Time control

This knob controls a different function for each of the three effects (see chart at bottom). It is also associated with its own CV input, and when a jack is inserted into the CV input, the knob serves to attenuate incoming control voltages. This CV input responds to 0V to 5V signals.

Density control

This knob controls a different function for each of the three effects (see chart at bottom). It is also associated with its own CV input, and when a jack is inserted into the CV input, the knob serves to attenuate incoming control voltages. This CV input responds to 0V to 5V signals.

Tone control

This knob works on each of the three different effects as a simple lowpass filter, cutting the highs in the effected signal, and helping to provide definition between the dry and wet signal.

Wet control

This knob controls the amount of effected signal that is mixed with the dry signal. Dry is always 100%. On the rear of the module there is a Dry Lift jumper, this can come in useful when Stasis Leak is used in a send/return effects loop.

Tap/Sync In

These functions only apply to the delay effect, where they may be used to set the delay time, either manually, or via an incoming clock.

Left Out/Right Out

These two outputs may be used in conjuction for full stereo outputs of the chorus and reverb effects. The delay effect is mono, and either of the outputs may be used. For best results when using the chorus in a mono signal path, the left and right signals, which are 90o out of phase with each other, should be combined using a small mixer such and Process 26 or Volts Platz.

Knob Functions

  Chorus Delay Reverb
Time knob LFO rate Time sub-divisions* Pre-delay
Density knob Depth Repeats Decay

*Delay time (50 – 1000 ms). – Tap more than once within 1 second to set, LED blinks at quarter-note tempo, and the time knob is divided into 4 tempo subdivision:

  • 0-25%: 8th-note triplet
  • 25-50%: 8th-note
  • 50-75%: dotted 8th-note
  • 75-100%: quarter-note
