The Polara's flexible reverbs cover a full spectrum, from the intimate warmth of "Room," to the vast expansiveness of "Hall," through time with the cosmic power of "Reverse," and anchored by Lexicon's revered "Modulated," "Plate" and "Spring" reverbs. In addition to those classics, the Polara introduces the new "Halo" reverb. The "Halo" reverb with cascading octaves interspersed in the reverb decays will cast a heavenly glow over your tone.
Lexicon Reverb Types: Room - Fast decaying reverb; great for a touch of ambience, Plate - Renowned studio reverb found on classic recordings, Reverse - Reverb in reverse; quietly crescendos to full volume, Modulated - Lush modulating reverb ideal for chords, Halo - Shimmering reverb with cascading octave shifts, Hall - Large encompassing reverb with warm decay, Spring - Classic "surf" reverb
With its new, compact size and vacuum-style footswitch, the Polara truly represents the latest evolution in DigiTech pedal design. Digitech has put years of experience into every detail of its mechanical and sonic blueprint.
The Polara offers independent Level, Liveliness, Decay and Type controls; stereo inputs and outputs; a soft-click footswitch; and a reverb tails On/Off toggle switch. It is true bypass, and uses a 9V DC power supply to easily integrate into your existing pedal board.
The new architect of your soundscape, defining space and adding dimension to your playing.
What a great pedal. Huge sound and endless options. The pedal also looks awesome. The only small weak point is the 'readability' of the words on the pedal. The names of the reverb are very small and difficult to read.
Fantastic reverb has a lot of functions that can be tweaked to get a variety of ambient and spacey tones. Reverse reverb is an interesting idea that could provide a new tonal layer for ambient music. Solidly constructed pedal. With a number of good reverbs from plate to spring with well thought out controls which allow the user to dial in their ideal reverb sound. While still being simple enough and versatile enough for the recording artist to use it for a wide range of songs.
Digitech bought out Lexicon (company that made David Gilmour's reverb units) consequently, this thing is full of Lexicon quality verbs. The 'halo' setting is something of a synth generator and it's amazing for ambient tones.
I love this reverb. It can be very musical with the 'Halo' and 'Modulated' options—or as basic as you need it. I have it at the end of my chain, after my stereo delay and run stereo out. Great for swells if you open up the dampening. I don't turn it on and off when I playing too much—for those who do, the 'Tails' option and click-less stomp switch is a major plus for staying clean!
Also I would add—great value, build quality is impressive!!!
