Do you remember the announcement of Julia V2 on this year’s NAMM show? The Walrus Audio Julianna is the further development of this pedal and does everything right and above all better – and brings features that we (and certainly many others) have missed on the Julia pedal.
Analog chorus and vibrato, that is what many people know and love from Walrus Audio. Still, Julia didn’t have some features that the Julianna now comes with. And we think the pedal is rightly nicknamed Deluxe Chorus/Vibrato – the list of features has grown considerably.
The sounds in the videos (linked below) just sound very good. However, one point of criticism remains for us: The foot switches are so close together for us that we cannot either close the pedals on our board simultaneously or accidentally press both.
Apart from the momentary functions and the new foot switch, little has changed in terms of control. The controls remain at Rate, Depth, and Lag (delay for modulation), DCV (dry/wet for mono) and the toggle switches at Shape (including random) and the new Div (ision).
- Tap Tempo Control: Set the rate of the LFO with the Rate knob or the tap tempo switch.
- Stereo In/Out Jacks: Run mono in/mono out, mono in/stereo out, stereo in/stereo out.
- Momentary Secondary LFO Speed: Ramp up or slow down to a second LFO rate. See manual for details.
- Drift Function: Gently speed up and slow down the LFO rate. Kinda like having a little robot inside your pedal moving the Rate knob up and down. See manual for details. You’ll like this one.
- Random LFO Shape: In addition to sine and triangle, Julianna adds a random wave shape option to modulate the pitch of your signal.
- Tap Division: Select quarter note, quarter note triplet or eighth note multiplier to scale a tapped in tempo.
- Expression Control: Control Depth, Rate or both with an expression pedal.
- External Tap In.

Recently, Walrus Audio has introduced the Ages Guitar Effects Pedal with five different gain-states from low-gain mode to high-gain mode, a dry blend knob, a boost/cut bass EQ before the distortion stage, and treble control to contain overly harsh sounds – that can definitely be heard and be described as independent!
