Pitch and harmony effects have come a long way since the 1970s. Whether you want to transform your guitar into an organ, add automatic vocal harmonies to a solo performance, or virtually detune your bass without touching your tuning pegs, it's easier than ever with Sweetwater's rich selection of pitch and harmonizer pedals.
First up are the octave pedals. Internal processors halve or double the frequency of the input signal to create lower and higher octaves. Fuzz pedals famously use octave circuits to generate their syrupy low end and chirpy top. Examples of these processors include TC Sub 'N' Up, EarthQuaker Tentacle, MXR M225 Fuzz, DigiTech Mosaic 12-String Effect
Unlike failed synth systems of the past, today's synthesizer pedals work without the installation of special pickups. Tracking is critical with these boxes, since they follow the input signal - some even polyphonically - to generate overtones on the spot. The Electro-Harmonix Synth9 and Key9 pedals make your guitar or bass take on the character of select classic organs. Others, like the EarthQuaker Bit Commander, manipulate the waveform of your signal to make it sound like a primitive 8-bit synth. Burger Time, anyone? Learn More
