Deep and lush yet transparent; approximates the classic late 60's Univox™
Univibe™ sound, but is not a clone of that circuit.
Uses low-noise, low-distortion op-amp technology and LED/LDR phase
Moves your sound but does
not impose its own.
Will not distort or darken or thin
signal (except to the extent that the moving, phase-shifted signal naturally
cancels out a sweeping band of frequencies in the dry signal as they mix).
Your signal tone is clean, clear, and full even with a bass guitar.
wide range of speed, variable sweep dwell, and variable mix
Goes from almost standing still to super
fast rotary spin
Controls the symmetry of the wobble

Univox and Univibe are trademarked terms and
belong to their respective owners.
Skreddy Pedals has no affiliation
Variable from dry to "chorusy" phase shift to pitch
Move the mix more to the "dry" side for a
subtler, 70's phase effect, and more to the "vibrato" side for a wetter 60's
vibey effect, or leave it in the middle for a chewy, funky effect.
This is an intentionally primitive mixer, and
it will get slightly louder at the extreme (CW and
settings. One of the benefits of the simplicity of this
mixer is a very transparent signal chain with no noise reduction and no
gain-makeup stages needed.
DC adapter required; no battery option
(note: a power supply is NOT INCLUDED)
9 volts only
DC power supply
must have a standard 5.5mm barrel x 2.1mm center coax Polarity: negative center (industry standard)
Do not use an AC power supply
DC power only
After playing with
it for a while, you'll feel naked without one
Use it anywhere you'd think
about using a phaser, vibe, rotating speaker, or chorus effect.
Sounds incredible clean, but use
it with fuzz or distortion, and you'll have flashbacks.
Bypass (Green) indicates when circuit is active, off when in
Speed (Red) indicates the speed and the dwell of the sweep,
Running the Dwell knob at min for an exaggerated, old-school "whump-whump"
vibe effect, and after fuzz, for max intensity

CrazyDiamond.mp3 (bypassed, then Paradigm Shift, then adding Lunar
Module in clean/dirty mode, then some Skreddy Echo)
CleanOdFuzz.mp3 (Paradigm Shift, adding Screw Driver then Lunar Module
for super high-gain fuzz--note there is some mic clipping in the "clean"
sections; not the best sound quality)
WhoIsMaryKelly: (Nord Electro in Rhodes mode)
i absolutely love the paradigm
shift i got a few weeks ago. it really adds the perfect amount of slight
compression to my rhythm tones w/o coloring the guitar tone too much and i
can dial in a great throb w/ a quality sustainer. i was using a xxx (boutique
uni-vibe clone) before but now i run: st200>paradigm>clyde>diamond comp>klon>top
