1.Rate Knob: This knob controls the speed or rate of the LFO signal
that modulates the flanger. It also controls the rate of the Chorus
effect. As you turn the Rate knob up the rate will increase. When the
Rate knob is turned down between fully counter-clockwise and the 10
o’clock position, the Stereo Electric Mistress will enter Filter Matrix
mode. In Filter Matrix mode the LFO signal is disconnected from the
Flanger and Chorus so that you can manually modulate the Flanger/Chorus
by turning the Rate knob. Keep the Rate knob below 10 o’clock to keep it
in Filter Matrix mode.
1. Flanger Depth Knob: Controls the amount of Flange that is mixed with
the direct signal. The more you turn the knob clockwise, the more
pronounced the flanger effect.
2. Chorus Depth Knob: Controls the amount of the sweet chorus sound.
The more you turn the knob clockwise, the more pronounced the chorus
Hint: The Flanger and Chorus effect can be used together. While both
produce rich sweeping textures on their own, together they can produce
dramatically different and warm sonic textures that are not available
when one effect is used alone.
STATUS LED - This LED indicates the current state of the unit. When
the LED is lit up, the box is in EFFECT mode. When the LED is off, the
box is in BYPASS mode. Pressing the Footswitch will toggle
INPUT Jack - This 1/4” jack is the audio input to the Stereo Electric
Mistress. The input impedance presented at the Input Jack is 2 M(.
MAIN OUT Jack - This 1/4” jack is the main effect output jack. Use
this jack when connected the Stereo Electric Mistress in mono. The
output impedance at this jack is 820 (.
STEREO OUT Jack - This 1/4” jack is the stereo effect output jack.
Connect this jack to your second amp or second mixer channel when
connecting the Stereo Electric Mistress in stereo. The output impedance
at this jack is 820 (.
9V Power Jack - Connect the output plug from the AC Adapter that was
supplied with your Stereo Electric Mistress to this jack, located at the
top of the unit. The Stereo Electric Mistress accepts Boss style AC
The flanging effect can be thought of as a pitch slowly sweeping between
high and low limits superimposed on the guitar signal. The RATE
control allows you to change the speed at which the sweep occurs. With
the RATE control fully counter-clockwise, you enter the Filter Matrix
mode, which extends to the 10’o'clock position of the knob. Turning the
dial clockwise increases the rate to the point where the frequency of
the input signal appears to be shifted in a vibrato-like fashion. The
Chorus effect follows the same principal but produces a lush chorus
where the rate control is applied to the Chorus and Flanger share
FILTER MATRIX Mode:
The STEREO ELECTRIC MISTRESS has been set at the factory for maximum
color capacity in the FLANGER mode. One of the unique settings that was
inherited from the legendary DELUXE ELECTRIC MISTRESS is the Filter
Matrix mode. The harmonic makeup of the flange remains while no
frequency modulation is applied. Different tonalities can be obtained
when the RATE knob is set between a totally off position to around 10
