Developed closely with world renowned keyboardist, prolific producer, and two-time Grammy winner Ikey Owens (Jack White's Buzzards, The Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents), the Mantric Isaiah is a classic sounding PT-based digital/analog hybrid delay that offers warm characteristics and subtle artifacts of analog and tape with the consistency and diversity of digital.
The feedback range is quite extended, allowing for more than enough self-oscillation for the experimenter. The preamp section is completely analog and uses the infamously tasteful 4558 IC with the "Mix" control being fairly conservative to avoid over saturation and/or "muddying" of the original signal. The characteristics and tone are fairly dark.
