Catalinbread Effect Pedals - Heliotrope Harmonic Pixelator

$169.99

SOLD. Call us for options.

The Catalinbread Heliotrope Harmonic Pixelator Pedal is your solution to finding that elusive, over-the-top alien sound - a ring modulator that actually responds with a robotic voice that's surprisingly musical - so don't worry, your guitar won't sound like HAL 9000 (though how awesome would that be?). As a harmonic pixelator, it digitizes your guitar's tone into something that can either be incredibly subtle to something so unrecognizable you might wonder where it's even coming from - and that's the beauty of it: you have a lot to play with.

The Volume and Gain controls are self-explanatory. Sample Rate allows you to harmonize with the effect itself, as well as do anything but harmonize. And the Resolution knob controls the focus of the pedal, specifically how much break in the signal you want. The pedal also has a Hi/Lo switch so you can operate the effect in two individual frequencies for even greater variability in effect. For a truly unique sound and an analog bit-crusher (an effect that's technically not possible), the Catalinbread Heliotrope Harmonic Pixelator is worth toying around with, especially for players looking to "weirden" up their tone. Go on, try not to play the five-note Close Encounters of the Third Kind motif. We dare you. (d e c C g just in case.)
