Create cool swelling and sustain effects, with a Pigtronix Philosopher King envelope and compression pedal.

From simple swells to infinitely sustaining notes, subtle punch to glistening pad-like washes, it's all possible with the Philosopher King. You can also affect the Philosopher King's settings on the fly by adding an expression pedal, or by utilizing its onboard CV I/O.
