OpenStomp Coyote-1 Is An Open Source Effects Processor

Remember the Beavis Board DIY effect pedal kit?

The OpenStomp Coyote-1 is a similarly open-ended effects processor, except that it’s for digital effects. 

Coyote-1 is an open source audio effects processor, built for guitar players. But there’s no law that says guitar players get to have all the fun!

With the Coyote-1, users can develop custom audio effects in software (like distortion, echo, chorus etc.), mix multiple effects to build “patches”, and exchange those effects and patches with the OpenStomp community.

A companion Windows application (OpenStomp Workbench) allows users to combine effects into patches graphically, and to move patches and effects between the Coyote-1 device and their PC’s disk.

The Coyote-1 O/S is open source so users can tweak it to behave any way they like, and the hardware is fully documented so that developers can take control of the whole pedal, dedicating all available system resources toward the implementation of unique custom solutions.

The OpenStomp has not been released yet, and no pricing is set. Details at the Howleraudio site.
