About Spacer

Spacer is a multi-effects station that provides a foundation for adding depth and expansiveness to your sound. It features a classic algorithmic reverb with a wide range of controls, allowing users to dial in some initial size or position it at the end of a chain to maximize lushness.

Key Features

Spacer boasts three types of reverbs (Algorithmic, Convolution, Grain), two types of delays (Simple, Grain), and a fluid modular system with reorderable effects. It also includes 150 global presets, 200 module presets, and a two-band EQ per module. The granular engine with pitch-shifting technology is provided by Zynaptiq ZXT LE.

The Spacer also includes a Chorus module with up to seven voices, LFO rate, Separation, Feedback, and Spread controls. It comes with 110 impulse responses, or users can load their own. Additional features include a 'Dimension Expander' chorus effect, a Haas stereo effect, and controls for Saturation, Presence, and Air.
