With the M68 Uni-Vibe, MXR offers a compact and practical version of a mesmerizing and unique modulation effect that has made the history of the electric guitar. Nothing less !
You do not necessarily know what a Uni-Vibe is, but you've probably heard that already on an album, in the hands of Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Robin Trower or Stevie Ray Vaughan, for example. This effect was originally conceived as a compact way to emulate the rotating speaker of a Leslie booth, but then emerged as a distinct effect, between phasing and chorus.
The old has shrunk!
The problem then lay in the enormous dimensions of the original pedal, not to mention that it was not of proven solidity. To take advantage of this effect without fear of failure, MXR offers the M68 Uni-Vibe, a compact pedal that takes the circuit of the vintage model with the same simplicity of settings: intensity of the effect, speed, output volume (ideal to slightly boost your solos while adding modulation).
Kiff the Vibe ...
A switch allows you to go from voicing chorus to voicing vibrato. The first, most often used, magnifies and flatters the sound in a very musical way. The second, more extreme, gives a quivering effect used for example by Primus, Wilco or the Beatles. This discreet little pusher allows to alternate easily and quickly between the two possibilities. Whether you're looking for classic Uni-Vibe sounds or creating new textures, the M68 is the best way to do that.
