Video: Spaceman Releases the Mission Control Expressive Audio System

Ahead of the NAMM 2019 convention later this week, Spaceman Effects has announced the release of its Mission Control Expressive Audio System. As its name suggest, the new brand-new stompbox is designed to control the signals from other pedals in your rig.

Using a built-in effects loop and an analog VCA powered by an envelope generator, the Mission Control lets you take the signals from other pedals, and, through seven different selectable modes, decide how you'll fade them in and out of your overall sound.

An Offset knob allows you to choose the minimum amount of signal from your pedal chain affected by Mission Control, while a Blend knob allows you to mix between your dry and affected tones.

Along with the knobs for Attack and Release, the Actuate footswitch allows you to trigger different attack and release times for volume swells, abrupt pulses, or quick, tremolo-like flutters comprised of the full tonal color of your effects loop. If you can imagine what your five favorite pedals might sound like if allowed to click on and off repeatedly in quick succession, you can start to hear what's possible with Mission Control.

Spaceman's new pedal also comes with a CV in/out that can be used in two different ways. You can take a CV signal from a synth to let it modulate how Mission Control affects your pedal chain, or you can use the CV output to send Mission Control's info to another pedal or instrument.

Be sure to check out Andy’s full demo above to see what the Mission Control can do, and if you happen to be visiting NAMM this year, you can stop by the Reverb booth to see more of the Mission Control in action.
