KMA Machines Tyler Deluxe Dual Frequency Splitter Pedal

Active and variable two-channel crossover/signal splitter with clean blend and phase inversion

MFR# KMA-TYLRDLX

Product Description

Do you remember the sounds coming from the woods, as a rough and towering man was wielding his frequency-splitting axe? Driven by nature’s most primordial force, that man then dropped his simple axe, picked up his power saw and evolved into something more. Something bigger, stronger and more versatile. Standing tall is the KMA Machines Tyler Deluxe - the ultimate frequency-selective signal-splitting tool, ideal for developing new sounds and leading your creativity down new inspiring parallel paths.

KMA Machine’s Tyler (active and variable two channel crossover/signal splitter) has successfully found its place on many bass and guitar players’ boards around the world, helping them refine and define their tone. However never to stand still, KMA Machines decided to step up the game and create a more advanced, versatile and flexible solution, based on the great user feedback.

The heart of the pedal is still the same essential filter sections, which splits your signal into different loops with HIGH PASS and LOW PASS paths both filters have a 12 dB/oct. roll-off with a variable cut-off frequency from 20 Hz to 3 kHz). The rest of the vital tonal organs have had a thorough upgrade, which has resulted in an improved noise floor too. So, let’s dive into everything that makes this pedal Deluxe.

Since the original Tyler was also used as an advanced AB/Y box by many, it was found that ground loops could occur - no more with Tyler Deluxe! Both SENDs are now transformer coupled (with TRIAD Magnetics) to give you a nice and warm saturation, while avoiding ground-loops (internal slide-switched ground-lift). To be prepared for almost every situation and every pedal, both loops also got their own phase inversion switch (±) to get rid of potential unwanted phase cancelation.

The next new must-have feature is there to ensure the transparency of your setup - the good old CLEAN blend.

So far so good, but the Deluxe delights don’t stop here! A master phase-switch ensures a fixed and reliable interaction with your set filter-frequency in every situation, no matter if you either have a loop engaged or not. But wait, for all of you who wants to follow Tyler's evolution, KMA added another claimed feature. The LP-CUT and HP-CUT switches will now mute your loops when bypassed, which will give you tons of new options to be creative, by only using the engaged loops without having clean artifacts pass through when disengaging one of the loops.

Modern times brings modern needs, so Tyler Deluxe is now equipped with relay-based soft-switches, an internal step-up to increase the headroom for hotter input signals and low-noise op-amps to improve the overall sound-quality and usability.

Some examples of use: Bass players want to retain their low end while using their favorite fuzz or dirt pedal. Insert your dirt box in the high-pass FX-Loop and adjust the cut-off frequency of the High and Low Pass to your needs. Dial in your preferred ratio of those Low and High Pass signals, engage the STEEL foot-switch and you will never turn off Tyler again! You can also insert different modulation pedals, for example insert a lush phaser for the lows and a nice shimmering delay for the highs and Tyler will make it sound like two different guitars are playing at once. Mix up your modulation pedals with any dirt pedals, for a very pronounced and punchy sound all coming from one amp. If there ever was a Swiss army knife for your tone, then Tyler Deluxe must surely be it. So, fire up your frequency saw and start defining your own unique sonic path.

Powered by an optional standard 9V DC (max) PSU (negative center, 2.1mm, approx. 100mA current draw).

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
