Unleash the power of 80s nostalgia with the Hypnosis multi-effect unit, designed to transform your instruments and synthesizers into a sonic time capsule. The Hypnosis features Chorus/Flanger, Delay and Spring Reverb effects, along with LFOs for modulation. All three effects have an activate button to switch them in or out of the signal chain as desired. Each button also has a dedicated trigger input, allowing for CV control of the on/off process to create subtle, rhythmic elements. Hypnosis can be used as a standalone module or integrated into a Eurorack modular system.

The signal path begins with the chorus/flanger combo. It’s based on analog BBD circuitry and has four controls: feedback, level, rate, and time. Next comes the delay. This goes through the analog signal path but is digital. So, a hybrid delay (40ms-500ms) with three controls: dry/wet mix, feedback, and time. The time can also be controlled via CV, the core of the delay circuit is taken from the Dreadbox Erebus. Third and final effect is a spring reverb. This is not a digital emulation but a real one with a small spring tank on the board. The spring reverb section offers three parameters: dry wet/mix, gain, and pre-delay time (30ms up to 200ms).

Looking at the left and right ends, you will find further functions. On the left, there’s a multi-wave LFO (triangle, square, random, random gates) with lag, CV-controllable rate, and level controls. This can be freely patched into other Hypnosis sockets and has a wide range (1 min – 1ms).

Then, you also have a master section where the signals go in and out. Hypnosis Reissue is compatible with Eurorack, line, guitar, and microphone signals. Two sliders allow the levels to be adjusted precisely.
