Complementing the reverb and delay pedals already in the Walrus Audio roster, the Lore focuses on building complex ambiences – “an ambient creation machine built around reverse delay and reverbs”, says Walrus. 

Basically, it’s a pedal that has two DSP chips running in series, each with its own analogue feedback path, allowing for various combos of delay and reverb, with plenty of interaction between the effects.
