Death by Audio was conceived in 2002 with the most insane pedal of all time: the Total Sonic Annihilation. Here was a pedal that literally transformed all of your pedals into different effects by force feeding them back into themselves. Fast forward to present day - through painstaking redesign and improvements - the original circuit has been reborn as the Total Sonic Annihilation 2. Totally new functionality creates wildly more warped alien space sounds than the original, with even more controllability. The TSA2, like its predecessor, works on a simple premise: what if effect pedals were patched back into themselves? What does it sound like for a filter to be multiplied by infinity? Or if your modulator was modulating its own modulations? The TSA2 creates a controllable feedback loop, meaning your pedals will cycle back on themselves, feeding the output back into the input as much or as little as you want. Experience true sonic exploration: every unique pedal array will produce a vast world of textures and possibilities. The Total Sonic Annihilation 2 greatly expands on the original with the addition of features that allow equal part control and mad-scientist experimentation. Featuring an active boost, phase reversal, and limiter, any pedal - no matter how quiet, loud, or phase shifted - can find its place in the loop of the TSA2. Or, you can use those controls to warp and blast your sound to any extreme. The TSA2 also works on its own as a standalone oscillating fuzz blaster for your guitar/bass/synth with nothing in the loop and the active boost on. Go even deeper and it can be used as its own independent oscillating noise device. That’s right, it can even be played as its own instrument. Explode your entire pedal board with this reinvented blast from the past.
