When bluegrass legend Peter Rowan called his the "Space Reverb, we'd never heard a better description for the Caroline Meteore. They call it a "Lo-Fi Reverb," and while it might rely on reverb sounds to produce its effect, you'll use it more like you might a delay. The Meteore creates expansive, ethereal textures that can sit under your sound or completely take it over (if that's what you're into). It goes a lot deeper than a simple reverb pedal.
The Meteore also has flexible controls so you can tailor the sound to your liking, but what's most fun is "Attack" control (it's the crazy little space invader guy). The Attack control sets the amount of gain in the preamp, which allows you to boost or overdrive the reverb sound. You dry signal still comes through clean, so it can be a really interesting feature. The "Havoc" switch is very cool, too—it's great way to let everything build up and then quickly release.

"Imagine taking the ice bucket challenge, but you’re dunking yourself in dreams! Inspired by the ultra-modern line 14 of the Paris Métro and its sleek platforms of glass, steel and tile that add all kinds of cool sonic artifacts to the space, the MÉTÉORE™ (pronounced may-tay-or) is our take on reverb.
We’ve kept your original signal path analog and pure, while giving you overdrive and regeneration controls to take you from spring reverb sounds to something much bigger. The controls are very interactive with each other, and as per Caroline tradition, this pedal can get VERY loud. You know, something something power, responsibility, blah blah blah…"
