    "The PLUS pedal is a new kind of audio processing engine that offers piano-style sustain for guitars and other electric instruments"



    REAL TIME AUDIO SAMPLING


    is a unique technology developed by GAMECHANGER AUDIO that lets you capture and sample tiny bits of your instrument’s signal in real time and loop them into a seamless, warm and responsive sustained tone.
    Think of it as a smart looper that only “catches” the last segment part of each note or chord and use it to create a continuous sound.

    Dynamic & Responsive
    The PLUS Pedal is also fully responsive to any playing style – create continuous layers of sustain incorporating vibrato, bends, harmonics, trills and other dynamic playing techniques. You can also use the whammy bar, play with a slide or experiment with amp feedback or noises – the PLUS Pedal will capture all of these tonal nuances and turn them into a continuous sound.


    • Live Performances

      The PLUS Pedal is incredibly useful for both solo performers and bands – create rich harmonies and achieve a huge sound on stage – the audience won’t know what hit them.

    • Connector.
      Songwriting
      The PLUS Pedal opens up a whole new dimension for song arrangments and chord-melody. It is almost like having an extra hand.

    • Connector.
      Practice & Aural training
      Instead of thinking about what scale shapes fit over which chords, the PLUS Pedal encourages you to focus on listening and develops your understanding of intervals and tonal relationships.

    • Sound Effects and Ambience
      Even with no experience in sound production – you will be able to transform your instrument into a full-on sound effects laboratory. Great for ambient genres or movie scores.

    Exactly... and auto swells and tails and blending ability and you can buy a separate wet switch for doing things like running in stereo. The pre-order price is much lower than what the street price is going to be too.

    This looks pretty awesome, really cool sounds in the demo! The swells sound great.

    Was the link supposed to take me to Scooter's Wikipedia page?

    Oh, man. I've been dreaming about something like this (exactly like this) for years, but 2017 was going to be the year I didn't buy any more pedals.

    18 days is a pretty good run, right?

    Right?

    help

    That looks incredible

    But the way it was demoed, I feel like I get basically the same vibe from just keeping an in-key open string ringing a lot.

    Being a keyboard player, this would be a natural for me.
    I like this a lot!

    You'll thank me if you pre-order and pay almost $100 less than what it's going to retail for since you're going to break down and get it anyway at some point!
