Bass simulator effects pedal for guitar with 9 voices, dry & effect mix knobs, sensitivity & control knobs
Notes: The polyphonic BASS9 Bass Machine transforms a guitar into nine different basses and requires no special pickups, MIDI or instrument modifications. It relies on the same technology powering all EHX 9 Series pedals, like the award winning MEL9 Tape Replay Machine, but features a new algorithm maximized for transposing one to two octaves down with superior dynamics and tracking.
A rotary switch allows the user to select the sound of their choice, as follows:
- PRECISION: Pays homage to the iconic Fender P Bass
- LONGHORN: Emulates the Danelectro 6-string bass, ideal for baritone type tones
- FRETLESS: Features both electric and standup fretless basses.
- SYNTH: A tribute to the classic Taurusr Synthesizer
- VIRTUAL: Lets the user adjust the bass's body density and neck length for a variety of bass sounds
- BOWED: Classic bowed bass
- SPLIT BASS: Makes it possible for the guitarist to play bass on the lower strings (all notes below F#3) and chords or melody with the higher strings.
- 3:03: A polyphonic salute to the sought-after Roland TB-303 vintage bass synth
- FLIP-FLOP: Inspired by EHX's Octave Multiplexer, it provides a '70s style logic driven sub-octave generator that tracks without glitches.
The pedal is equipped with independent Effect and Dry volume controls so guitarists can precisely tune their mix at the Effects output jack, plus an always-active Dry output jack that outputs the input signal at unity gain.
Controls 1 and 2 have been designed to adjust specific parameters for each of the nine programs. For example, in PRECISION, CTRL 1 controls the sub-octaves while CTRL 2 imitates the original instrument's tone control.
The BASS9 comes equipped with a standard EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply.
Notes: The Mad Professor Double Moon is a small, easy to use and super versatile pedal for a wide variety of modulation sounds. True analogue bucket brigade signal paths with a Tone control makes the Double Moon a long-awaited modulation pedal for today's guitar player.
Double Moon pedal has 11 carefully designed modes that will let you dial in, not only all of the classic modulation effects, but far beyond that. All of the sounds are easily reached from a rotary switch: 3 chorus effects, 3 dual chorus effects, 3 flanger effects, flanger+chorus and a vibrato.
You can further on fine tune the LFO wave or Regen depending on the mode by the Control knob. The Depth knob will let you dial in the desired amount of the effect and the Speed knob will control the speed of the effect.
Modulation effects from mild to deep, motionless to faux-Leslie type, it's all there with the added Tone control!
2-stage LFO with Sequential, Composite & Modulation modes
Notes: The Malekko Goatkeeper (MGK) is a completely redesigned version of the Lightfoot Labs Goatkeeper, first released in 2007. The core of the pedal is an all analogue tremolo circuit using a THAT Corp VCA, which when combined with the built in waveforms, can produce tremolo sounds from percussive to smooth. The MGK's LFO generation consists of two stages, each with a range of multiplier values and waveform selection.
The two stages can be run in 3 ways:
- Sequential: The two stages are run one after the other
- Composite: The two stages are run simultaneously and the effective waveform is a polyrhythmic composite of the two.
- Modulation: The two stages are run simultaneously and the effective waveform is the equivalent of one modulating the other.
Tempo can be set with the RATE knob or with the Tap/Sync input. The Tap/Sync input accepts a Malekko Lil' Buddy for tap tempo control, or an analogue clock/metronome signal. The DEPTH knob allows the effect to vary from subtle to high intensity.
Tracking 24dB/octave multimode filter pedal with 100% analogue circuitry
Notes: Pigtronix Resotron is an analogue filter that brings the sound of 70's keyboard synthesizers to the world of envelope pedals for guitar, bass and beyond. The filter at the heart of the Resotron is based on the SSM2040 chip found in the legendary Prophet 5 and Octave CAT synthesizers. This 24db/octave, state-variable filter provides the full gamut of familiar envelope filter sounds with UP and DOWN sweeping modes, and a sensitivity control to dial in the response of the effect based on how hard you play.
In addition to these vintage-correct filter tones, the Resotron pushes the envelope pedal concept to a whole new level by using an analogue pitch-tracking system to move the cutoff frequency of the filter up and down. The pitch-following filter effect found in the Resotron moves around based on the notes you play instead of how hard you play. The attack time and rate of filter motion can be adjusted - using the GLIDE knob - to dial in how long it takes for the cutoff to travel between pitches.
"The pitch-following effect found in the Resotron is analogous to the "key-follow" function found on the original Minimoog and many other classic analogue keyboards," says Pigtronix president David Koltai. "Using our all-analogue pitch-tracking circuit to control cutoff frequency, the Resotron delivers mind-blowing filter motion for guitar players. I've dreamt of making this pedal for years, and it's finally here."
The Resotron has the ability to operate in Low Pass, Band Pass or High Pass modes. Each of these filter voices has a distinctive character that can be manipulated by adjusting the PEAK knob, progressively feeding the filter back upon itself to increase the resonance (or "Q") of the filter, right up to the point of self-oscillation. A push-button OSCILLATE function allows you to go even further - turning the Resotron into an analogue synthesizer pedal that follows both the pitch and dynamics of your playing. The synthesizer sounds created by the Resotron can be radically altered by switching between the LPF, BPF and HPF modes. This allows users to access waveforms that range from subtle voice emulations to bombastic, aggressive lead sounds, as well as ultra-smooth sub bass tones.
Before the pedal's input signal hits the Resotron's filter, it passes through an optical compression stage derived from the Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone pedal. The increased volume and punch from this compressor can then be mixed into the audio signal using the BLEND control - without affecting the SENSITIVITY of the envelope. Resotron accepts active CV and passive TRS expression pedal inputs for foot-controlled filter sweeps and outboard modulation, which is mixed in parallel with the on-board pitch-following and amplitude tracking systems.
Vertical, pedalboard-friendly version of the Instant Lo-Fi Junky pedal
Notes: This pedal was designed to emulate the sounds and textures of the Lo-Fi Loop Junky in real time, but it goes far beyond that. Click it on and mix your sparkly clear compressed signal with the smashed, lo-fidelity warbled signal and listen to it become a luscious emulsification that can be blended to the most perfect depth. Achieve new haunting chorus sounds and pulsating vibrato. Unusual and fun, you've never heard anything quite like it.
