Redefine Your Dynamics!
Create cool swelling and sustain effects, with a Pigtronix Philosopher King envelope and compression pedal. The Philosopher King starts with the Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone circuit and marries it with a highly sophisticated ADSR envelope. The Philosopher King's controls include swell, fade, hold level, speed range, one-shot mode, and a selectable auto reset function, all of which let you define your sound's expression in amazing detail. From simple swells to infinitely sustaining notes, subtle punch to glistening pad-like washes, it's all possible with the Philosopher King. You can also affect the Philosopher King's settings on the fly by adding an expression pedal, or by utilizing its onboard CV I/O. The result is a unique pedal that lets you morph the dynamic characteristics of your guitar or bass in creative and exciting ways.Pigtronix Philosopher King ADSR Envelope/Compression Pedal Features at a Glance:
