Into the clouds... and beyond! Cloudburst is the first compact, standard-sized stompbox from leading guitar FX wizards Strymon. This ethereal-sounding reverb pedal is designed for experimental musicians who love to drench chords and melodies with immersive, dreamy, modulated ambience β€” allowing your tone to bloom in a way that draws music out of you effortlessly and keeps you engaged for hours on end!

The Strymon Cloudburst produces some of the most heavenly, shimmering soundscapes that you've ever heard from a guitar reverb pedal. That's because the powerful ambience processing is coupled with a brand-new 'Ensemble' engine, capable of creating pads that follow your playing organically. So, if you change pickups or play in a different place on the neck, you'll get different results.

Trust us, Cloudburst is unlike anything you've ever heard or played before β€” all wrapped in a smaller form-factor that still manages to house full stereo I/O, TRS MIDI, and USB-C connectors on the back panel. Prepare to be thoroughly inspired! You can also make use of the Strymon's MiniSwitch or MultiSwitch Plus (sold separately) to access additional modes and features such as: Favorite, Freeze, Infinite, or MIDI Mode!

Key Features

  • Handcrafted, computationally-intense reverb.
  • Tone and Pre-Delay controls for flexible reverb tone shaping.
  • Adjustable modulation for moderate to intensely-modulated reverb sounds.
  • Analogue dry path option for a zero-latency dry signal that is never converted to digital.
  • Ensemble effect for lush, orchestral-inspired harmonic enhancement.
  • Dry Kill mode to optionally mute the dry signal, providing control for the wet signal only.
  • Stereo input and stereo output (requires "TRS to dual TS" adapter or cable for each jack).
  • Expression pedal input allows the connection of a TRS expression pedal, MiniSwitch, MultiSwitch Plus, or TRS MIDI connection.
  • Separate Freeze and Infinite modes for creating continuously-sustaining sounds.
  • High-impedance and ultra-low noise discrete Class A JFET TRS stereo preamp input.
  • Fully-featured MIDI capability (Continuous Controller, Program Change, and 300 presets).
  • USB-C jack for performing firmware updates and connecting to the Strymon Nixie editor software.
  • +10dBu maximum input level easily handles instrument and line level signals.
  • High-performance 520MHz ARM Superscalar processor.
  • 32-bit floating point processing.
  • Super low-noise, high-performance A/D and D/A converters.
  • Strong and lightweight anodized aluminium chassis.
  • Designed and built in the USA.

Controls

  • Decay: Controls the decay time of the reverberated signal. Lower settings reduce the size of the reverberated space.
  • Ensemble: Analyses the input signal and generates a harmonically rich pad reminiscent of a string section. Three settings: off (no ensemble effect), mp (a medium amount of ensemble for subtle enhancement) and forte (maximum ensemble effect for creating a lush soundscape).
  • Mix: Influences the reverb mix from fully dry at minimum, to fully wet at maximum. A 50/50 mix occurs at approximately 3 o'clock on the knob.
  • Pre-Delay: Sets the amount of time before the reverberated signal appears. For the most natural results, use lower mix settings when using higher pre-delay.
  • Tone: Adjusts the high-end content of the reverb. Lower settings create darker, warmer reverberation. Higher settings are bright and crisp (note: this also affects the presence of the ensemble effect).
  • Mod: Adds a wide range of modulation to the reverberated signal. Modulation is off at the minimum setting.
