Roger Linn Designs AdrenaLinn III Beat-synced Filter Effects Pedal at a Glance:
Beat-synced filter effects
AdrenaLinn III's Beat-Synched Filter Modulation effects give you the classic modulation effects you know and love like tremolo, flanging, filter sweeps, vibrato, rotary speaker and auto-pan, but moving in perfect synch to its drumbeats or MIDI clock. No longer will you need to hope your tremolo stays in synch to your track, or try to make your flanger reach the top of its cycle when you want it to. With AdrenaLinn III, you simply select a tempo-based speed value - 1/8 notes, 1/8 note triplets, 1/16 notes, anything from every 8 measures to 1/32 note triplets - and AdrenaLinn III keeps perfect synch. But the real fun comes with AdrenaLinn III's new and unique modulation effects like Random Filter, Random Flanging and Random Tremolo, Filter Tremolo, Pulse Tremolo, Sawtooth Tremolo, Sawtooth Filter Tremolo, Hard-Switched Auto Pan and much, much more.
Beat-synced audio delay
Like the Beat-Synched Filter Modulation effects, AdrenaLinn III provides a Beat-Synched Audio Delay. Simply select a tempo-based delay setting--1/4 notes, dotted 1/8 notes, anything from 2 measures up to 1/32 note triplets--and the delay signal plays in perfect synch to the internal drumbeats or MIDI Clock. Set it to 1 or 2 measures (up to 2.8 seconds of delay) for our unique Delay Loops, which allow you to play chords on one bar, solo over them on the next bar as they play back , play new chords on the next bar over the last bar's solo, and on and on. A great inspirational tool.
40 great modeled amp sounds
AdrenaLinn III provides 40 accurate models of classic and modern guitar amps, as well as a few bass amps, 2 distortion boxes and even a tube mic preamp. With new enhancements for tube saturation simulation, the guitar amps modeled include Fender, Marshall, Vox, Mesa Boogie, Roland, Hiwatt, Soldano, Bogner, Deizel, Budda, Matchless, ENGL plus a number of custom Roger Linn Design amps for the more radical tones. Four bass amps are included from Acoustic, Ampeg, Gallien-Krueger and SWR. We also include Fuzz Tone and Octave Fuzz, as well as a simulated tube clean preamp for mic recording and full-frequency direct guitar tones.
Drum machine and more onboard
A great-sounding--and great-feeling--drum machine is included with 200 user-programmable drumbeats and over 40 sampled sounds. Two degrees of swing permit very natural-sounding grooves. Factory beats include Rock/Pop, 1/16 Note Grooves, Swing Grooves, Triplet Feels, Hip Hop, Electronica/Techno/Dance, World/Brazilian/Reggae/Latin, Jazz, Simple Counts and Processed Beats. Sounds include 9 kicks, 9 snare, 6 hihats, toms, ride, shaker, tambourine, congas, claps, triangle and cowbell. An additional simple guitar amp distortion simulator--independent of the amp models--provides great lo-fi sounds, and the drumbeats can also be routed through the reverb, delay or the entire guitar effects signal path for incredible-sounding processed beats. A stereo-output reverb adds depth and fullness, the compressor adds sustain and is great for evening out the level of resonant modulated filter peaks, the Noise Gate has a flawless transparency with natural note decay, and the tuner rejects hum and noise to keep you in tune during live performance.

AdrenaLinn III - Pure Trip

Music Background: Musician
I Keep Coming Back
by Gordy Hanson from Hemet, CAIn the never-ending search for great guitar sounds, I've owned so many effects/processors/stomp products that I can't remember them all. I've owned POD, Digidesign, Boss, and almost all of the major ... read more [+]brands, models, etc.

Music Background: Former professional guitarist - now a serious hobbyist - songwriter - serious hobbyist in home recording my whole life. Music teacher for 32 years.
A few years ago I owned an AdrenaLinn II, and wrote/recorded some of the best music I've ever done. Along the way, I sold it. Big, big mistake! Then I bought an Adrenalinn III, and eventually did the same stupid thing.
Nothing...and I mean nothing...comes even remotely close to what Roger Linn has done. This isn't a stomp box, or an effects box. To call it that would be a serious insult. It's a 'musical instrument.' While I've been able to get most of the traditional effects when needed out of the AdrenaLinn, that's really just the tip of the iceberg. Even the traditional effects have a more musical feel to them. The tone other-worldly.
I've been playing rock & roll, alternative, country, funk, and almost any style you can imagine for over 30 years, and I've come full-circle...again. This isn't some experimental piece of equipment...or a synth...or anything that you've ever experienced. It's really hard to explain...but if you use one of the preset beats (great sounds by the way), and start to jam with it, you'll be composing something new before you set your guitar down. That's a promise. It's almost as if the AdrenaLinn 'feels' the music with you, and it reacts in such a way that it gets your musical 'adrenalin' flowing.
The computer editor is very cool. I only wish that Roger would put a USB connection in the rig, rather than having to use midi cables. It's a small sacrifice.
No...I don't work for Roger Linn or Sweetwater Music. I've just purchased my third AdrenaLinn. This one's mine! close [-]
If you are looking for an "all-in-one" effects box for your guitar rig, the AdrenaLinn III should be on your short list. With 40 amp models, a dizzying array of effects, sequencing, and a built-in drum machine, this pedal could be all you need. The amount of control available through the unit can take you right to the borders of lands previously only inhabited by synth junkies.
AdrenaLinn... an entirely apropos name for a product guaranteed to rev up your heart-rate and your music. Think of it as the world's coolest adapter: On one end you plug a fluid, free-flowing instrument like guitar, bass, vocals, electric sitar, etc. On the other end you get rhythmic and harmonic pulses that are tightly sync'd to MIDI Clock, Tap Tempo, or to the onboard drum machine. AdrenaLinn makes everything you play work with Electronica, Techno, Dance, and more. While that feature alone is worth injecting AdrenaLinn into your system it goes way beyond that. The quality of the distortion, amp, and cab models is an unexpected surprise, giving you lots of massive sound that makes the pulsing much more dramatic. The sound then gets pumped into a very powerful and flexible filter that can synthesize a wide range of effects that morph your instrument into something entirely new. The final pharmaceutical magic is the sync'd stereo delay that scatters your filtered pulses across space and time and... well, let's face it: If the AdrenaLinn can't revive you, you may already be dead. (Hot Tip: If you want to sound like you're from a different galaxy, try plugging into an Electro-Harmonix H.O.G., and then into the AdrenaLinn. It's a head snapper!)
