Ultimate Chorus

EarthQuaker Devices Sea Machine is a chorus pedal that gives you an unprecedented measure of control over its parameters. Sporting EarthQuaker's proprietary digital-analog hybrid circuitry, Sea Machine's extended delay time gives you standout chorusing effects topped off with dramatic shimmer. Sea Machine is based around a short digital delay line, with controls for Animation, Dimension, and Depth. From there, knobs for Shape, Rate, and Intensity let you craft and fine-tune your chorus effect to perfection. If you've ever chorused your guitar (or keyboard, bass, or what have you), get ready for an ear-opening experience when you plug-in to EarthQuaker Devices' Sea Machine.

EarthQuaker Devices Sea Machine V2 Chorus Pedal at a Glance:
  • Smart controls for effect fine-tuning
  • A world of modulation underfoot

Smart controls for effect fine-tuning

Sea Machine's Animate knob gives you control over delay time, while Dimension adjusts the amount of spatial regeneration, and Depth adjusts your wet/dry signal mix. The LFO section of the Sea Machine includes Rate, Intensity, and Shape controls. Rate sets the speed of the oscillator, Intensity adjusts how much the LFO modulates the delayed signal, and Shape transforms the waveform from a soft triangle to a hard square wave. An LED shows the speed and shape of the LFO, even with the effect bypassed.

A world of modulation underfoot

It's Sea Machine's palette of controls, both standard and proprietary, that makes it unique - and eminently useful for everything from understated warble and classic Leslie effects to roller-coaster pitch bends, condensed arpeggiations, outrageous alien soundscapes, and more! When engaged, Sea Machine's transparent buffer leaves your dry, all-analog signal crystal clear and untouched. EarthQuaker Devices designed Sea Machine to play nicely with the other pedals in your signal chain without distorting, attenuating volume, or inducing mud. At Sweetwater, we tend to prefer it placed after distortion pedals and before signal boosters.

  • Amazing-sounding chorus pedal with unprecedented control over its parameters:
    • Rate: sets the speed of the LFO; LED shows tempo, even in bypass

powerful, powerfully, powerfullness. impressive... user friendly... think... LFO Settings (depth and rate is among these) the dimension and animation - 2 different directions. are you confused and excited? well , the earthquaker sea machine is a monster among chorus pedals and you should know! I'm sorry if I messed up any body's PLANS!

Absolutely Stunning & Flexible!

I am a chorus lover! I admit it! I have owned quite a few good ones. This one is the latest. After watching many video demos and trying to justify not buying it, I finally caved in. I am so glad that I did! There are sounds that you can get on the Sea Machine that you can't find anywhere else on a typical chorus pedal. But this pedal is not typical! Clean and clear sounding! Versatile. Even the seasick oriented sounds can be made musical. And the construction is absolutely stellar with wonderful artwork that is reminding me of labels on high quality bottles of great beer! I deeply recommend this pedal! And thanks to Nick LaMendola and Sweetwater Sound for such a great shopping experience!
