Prepare to embark on the journey through space, time, and surreal sonic bliss with the TrancePortal. All Mr. Black pedals are designed and handmade in the pacific-northwest; in the industrial “south-easy,” Portland, OR. The TrancePortal glides alone within the vast cosmos of effects and while it seems very simple to operate, it can truly throw you for a loop. The trick is to just relax, open up and let the sound whisk you away to the hypnagogic wonderland it knows best.
Dim the lights and light a candle. This isn’t a normal pedal, and this certainly isn’t a normal night.
Plug your instrument into the input jack (right side of the pedal) and your amp into the output jack (left side of the pedal).
Start with all the knobs set straight up and down.
Depress the footswitch, strike a chord and follow-up with something minor.
Lightly modulated echo with just the right amount of shimmer mixed in
Approx. 20 – 650mS echo time
9VDC power (2.1mm negative center pin adapter) or internal 9V battery
