The Zander Circuitry Templo is a multi-reverb stereo workstation, jam packed with a mix of traditional and modern reverb modes, offering fine control using the combination of dials and footswitches (it's also MIDI-compatible!).
From twangy springs to vast chasms, you’ll find a multitude of ways to add space and depth to your sound.
Templo Reverb Modes
The Zander Circuitry Templo has 8 reverb modes:
"Spring/Tile": Voiced around the classic spring reverb tank, with shorter decay and delay times giving a reflective sound. CTRL 1 lets you extend the pre-delay time to emulate a larger spring tank. CTRL 2 adjusts the short delay time, which adds more "springiness" to the sound.
"Room/Hall": A flexible reverb that offers room (short decay & pre-delay) and hall (long decay & pre-delay) sounds. CTRL 1 alters the pre-delay and CTRL 2 affects the low frequency loss.
"Cave": A deep, dark reverb capable of long decay times combined with a wide-ranging modulation section. CTRL 1 controls the modulation rate, while CTRL 2 control the modulation depth.
"Solid State": Based around the delay time structure of the MN3011 bucket brigade delay chip that was used in many solid state reverb units. CTRL 1 alters the main delay time. CTRL 2 offers a diffusion/dampening control to make the delay reflections less in your face.
"Whirl": A large worship-style reverb combined with a four-voice chorus for an angelic sound. CTRL 1 controls the modulation rate, while CTRL 2 control the modulation depth.
"Spectral": A large worship-style reverb combined with a lower octave duplication as well as an upper octave shimmer effect. CTRL 1 adjusts the lower octave mix. CTRL 2 controls the upper octave shimmer mix.
"Lo-Fi": A lo-fi reverb with strong high-pass filtering and intense modulation. CTRL 1 controls the modulation speed. CTRL 2 adjusts the frequency of a 2-pole high-pass filter.
"Granular": A dissonant, artefact-laden reverb combined with a bitcrushing/aliaser effect. Use the Decay control to remove the reverb from the mix completely, leaving just the bitcrusher/aliaser. CTRL 1 adjusts the aliaser frequency. CTRL 2 adjusts the aliases mix.
The Templo's 7 controls and 4 footswitches give you hands-on (and feet-on!) control:
Decay: Adjusts the reverb time/decay. Maximum decay time changes based on reverb mode.
CTRL 1: Adjusts parameter 1 in each mode.
CTRL 2: Adjusts parameter 2 in each mode.
Tone: Adjusts the EQ of the wet signal
Level: Adjusts the output volume
Mix: Adjusts the blend of the Templo reverb with your original signal, from 100% wet to 100% dry.
1-8: Reverb mode selector
"Engage" footswitch: Activates the Templo reverb.
"Kill Dry" footswitch: Pressing the Kill Dry footswitch will remove the dry signal completely, leaving you with just the reverb signal, indicated by the Kill Dry LED when active. This switch can be operated in both momentary and latching modes - to change the switching mode, press and hold the Tap and Kill Dry footswitches at the same time for 3 seconds.
"Preset" footswitch: The preset switch allows you to store and cycle through 5 on-board presets, represented by the 5 LEDs to the right hand side of the pedal. To store a preset, cycle through to the number you’d like to assign the preset to, set the controls to the desired settings and then press and hold the preset footswitch for 3 seconds.
"Tap" footswitch: Tap quickly for a short decay, slowly for a longer one. The decay length will be shown on the indicator LEDs. Pressing and holding the Tap footswitch will max out the decay time whilst the switch is held down.
Zander Circuitry Templo: Additional Capabilities
Switch between true or buffered bypass modes by pressing and holding the Bypass footswitch for 3 seconds.
The Templo is MIDI-compatible. Connecting a MIDI controller to the Templo via the MIDI jack allows you to access a wide range of additional features, including storing up to 128 presets, externally controlling any parameter, and accessing clock information.
The Templo includes an expression ("EXP") pedal input. All parameters (including the can be controlled with an expression pedal on a per-preset basis.
I spent an obsessive amount of time checking out univibe pedals. I'm so glad that I purchased this one from Boost. It is simply fantastic! If you don't believe me, then check out some video demos. Thanks Jim! + JG
This is a fantastic drive pedal. There’s plenty of Plexi style pedals out there and I’ve owned a few, this one stood out for the switchable A/B-B/A switch. The boost side is nice and simple, much like an LPB-1. Not overly clean but a perfect partner to the drive side. The Plexi side is again nothing revolutionary but very good all the same and sounds great, on a par with far more expensive pedals.
The build quality is also top end, very neat and tidy. Squeezed into the single enclosure and with a lifetime warrantee I couldn’t ask for more. I don’t think this’ll be leaving my pedal board any time soon!
Lots of great sounds in this relatively-compact delay / reverb
I’m only just starting to scratch the surface of the KMA MACHINES Cirrus, but absolutely loving it so far. Very responsive to pick attack which means can really control the “ambience” with playing style. Really looking forward to exploring further.
Had a few vibes, absolutely loving this one, check the YT demos, lovely satisfying vibe with all the swirly goodness you could hope for. Beautifully made and reasonably priced. Highly recommended - and Jim at Boost is a top guy
I came across the Formula B Fuzz Rangers via online demos on Youtube, and they all sounded so good that I had to get one. Looking online I found the Boost Guitar Pedals website via the Formula B website as a listed UK stockist. Jim was excellent and the pedal arrived when he said it would and it was perfectly packaged. I would have no hesitation in buying any other product from Boost.
As for the Fuzz Rangers, it is a great pedal. I had to work at it a touch to get the sounds I liked from it, but it seems to react really well to different guitars and different amps with adjustments to volume and tone on the guitar and different amp settings. I found it works best into a slightly cranked amp, and volume roll-off on the guitar offers a great variety of sounds from clean to classic fuzz. Thoroughly enjoying the pedal. Well done Jim, great website and a great selection of interesting brands and pedals..... Which one next????
Having used a number of univibe clones over the years this one truly nails the sound for me, it comes with some clever additions in a pedal board friendly size and is excellent value for money. If you want the true sound of the original this pedal delivers.Special thanks to boost Guitar Pedals for putting this deal together so quickly..
I'm still working my way through all the sounds, but so far I'm loving them all.
Each time I think I've got a fav sound I flip the diode switch and there's another one. Great value for a four-in-one fuzz pedal!!
Both modes really useable. The first can get a wooly or starved/wolly sound or more nasally raw sound depending on how you dial it in.
Mode two can be more mid focused and with both switches down it's just a real nice deep, warm wall of fuzz. Great stuff.
Awesome pedal. Does everything from short slaps, to long endless delays, or echo-verb. The infinite delay feature on the button hold is interesting, though if you need a certain sound out of it like that, you have to be okay with the sound that those settings create when the infinite hold feature is off. I’m sure it will be great for recording some interesting textures, but I don’t think I’d use it live, as the infinite hold sounds glitchy and cuts off very quickly at some of the shorter, more subtle delay settings that I use. The art on the pedal is nice, and the build quality is solid. Comes with a carry bag, for some reason, but I can’t complain. A great unit by any standard, but especially good quality and features for the ticket price.
