The Saturn is the electronic gateway to deep-space guitar modulation. Ultra-wide frequency band (FREQ) allows for all kinds of modulation reactions. Modulated tone is balanced with a full wet/dry mix control (MIX). Both the clean and the modulated signals are J-FET buffered. This mix is then passed through an overdrive section (DRIVE) that magnifies the impact of the modulation and allows the total signal to rise above unity if desired.
We've also included an expression jack to control frequency. Rather than disable the Frequency knob all together when using the expression pedal, we retained funtionality by allowing it to set the top limit of the modulation. This means that the top frequency can be pre-tuned and then the user can wash through the frequencies, ending at the exact frequency desired every time. Crank the knob and you've got the full sweep in the expression pedal.
Bypass shunts any carrier bleed, and the pedal is DEAD QUIET in bypass, unlike other modulators. Subtle high modulation fakes steady harmonics, low jagged modulation drives like fuzz tone gone evil. Everything in between just floats in space.
