The Midium

Collision Devices' description of the Collision Devices Nocturnal delay / reverb-shimmer / dynamic tremolo mono pedal



Looking for an ambient and textures creation box?  As huge fans of cinematic atmospheric soundtracks and ambiences we wanted to develop a pedal made for soundscapes creation.  It's composed of a Shimmer Reverb, a Dynamic Tremolo and a Modulated Delay.  Each effect can be used together or separately and has its own momentary or trails function.

Pass from the Dusk, through the Night to the Dawn with the Nocturnal.

Completely built in France. From the enclosure to the circuit. Assembled by hand in our workshop.

The Nocturnal has a lifetime warranty. Of course.


Three effects.  One pedal.


Modulated Delay

Warmed and inspirational delay based on a tape delay circuit.

Settings :

Mix : Controls the mix between Full Dry or 50% Dry / 50% Wet

Time : Time between each repetition. From a few ms to 1 second. Signal quality turns to Lo-Fi when it’s pushed to long repeats.

Feedback : Number of repetitions. Able to self oscillate very easily when the knob is around 7.5.

Modulation : Amount of modulation in the delay repetitions. Create a sort of old tape effect

Speed : Modulation’s frequency from 0.1 to 20 Hz.

Momentary effect : Feedback self oscillation when footswitch is long pushed




Dynamic Tremolo

Turn a huge amount of shimmer and reverb into it to make it oscillate faster.

Settings :

Sensibility : Sensibility, turn it clockwise to make the tremolo more sensitive to your attack

Depth : Controls the tremolo’s volume

Momentary effect : Tremolo overspeed when footswitch is long pushed





Create bright soundscapes and loose the notion of time until the sunrise. 


Settings :

Blend : Controls the amount of Dry/Wet signal. You can have a full Wet reverb.

Reverb : Reverberation time. Max 15 sec.

Shimmer : Makes the reverb shimmer

Filter : Digital filter. Low pass. Lets you make the shimmer darker or more shiny

Colour : Notch active and analog filter around 2.2 kHz. Controls the Q of the filter.

Trails : when footswitch is long pushed, the trails are activated and it allows you to play with the dry signal with the shimmer trails
