See: Mode [toggle] This knob changes depending on the position of the Mode toggle, and can be manipulated using an expression pedal. In Fixed mode (left), Freq changes the cutoff frequency of the filter. In Modulated mode (right), Freq changes the speed at which the filter modulates.
See: Mode [toggle] This knob changes depending on the position of the Mode toggle. In Fixed mode (left), Mod changes the rate and depth of the onboard vibrato circuit. At full counter-clockwise, the rate and depth are at their lowest. At full clockwise, the rate and depth are at their highest. Using this in conjunction with the Blend control transforms the circuit from chorus to vibrato and even includes some mild flanger tones. In Modulated mode (right), Mod engages a filter LFO, controlling the depth as you turn it clockwise.
This control gives you a blend between the fuzz section and the filter section. At full counter-clockwise, only the fuzz is heard, and at full clockwise, only the filter is heard.
Controls the amount of fuzz in the circuit as well as attenuated treble. At full counter-clockwise, you’ll hear a warm, lightly crunchy tone, and at full clockwise, you’ll unlock a searing lead fuzz tone.
This is a master volume control, and you’ll find the best results at any setting other than zero.
This toggle switch changes the behavior of the Mod knob and how the corresponding Warp footswitch affects it. When switched to the left, the Warp footswitch will force the knob from its current position fully counter-clockwise to zero. When switched to the right, the Warp footswitch will max out the Mod control from its current position
This two-position toggle adjusts the prominence of the always-on polyphonic low octave circuit. When the Voice is switched to the left, a mild polyphonic octave-down circuit is engaged that rolls off high frequencies and thickens the signal. When switched to the right, a more aggressive synth-like polyphonic octave down circuit jumps to the front of the mix, and is especially useful with the high-pass filter engaged.
This changes the filter type. The left position engages a low-pass filter while the right engages a high-pass filter.
This changes whether or not the filter is fixed (left) or modulated (right). When the Mode is switched to the left, the Filter can be manually manipulated by either your fingers or an expression device. When the Mode is switched to the right, the Filter sweeps automatically at a rate set by the Freq knob.

The Lysis requires a center-negative 9VDC power adapter with at least 60mA of current (not included). Almost all power supplies meet this requirement, but check yours beforehand. There is no option for a battery.
