Eventide Audio has introduced the MicroPitch Delay, a dedicated hardware implementation of the MicroPitch Delay in the H910 and H949 effects processors.
The effect offers a unique combination of dual pitch-shifters with fine-resolution detuning, delay and modulation, including new positive envelope and negative envelope modulation sources. They say this makes it useful for a wide range of applications, ranging from subtle tone thickening to creating a rich stereo spread to creative sound design special effects.
EA says the MicroPitch Delay pedal is not just for guitars, but works well with vocals, keyboards, drums, and more.
- Users can choose from dozens of Eventide presets to load via MIDI, which are also accessible in the preset list on the Eventide Device Manager (EDM – a Windows or Mac OS X application for software updates, system settings and creating/saving presets).
- The pedal can store up to 127 presets in memory, with five presets loaded for access from a latching/momentary dual-action Active Footswitch, with a Catch-up mode to help players dial in their sound when toggling between presets/parameters.
- A single Aux switch can be deployed to Tap Tempo, or a triple Aux switch can be used for easy preset changing (up/down/load).
- The MicroPitch Delay Pedal offers multiple Bypass options: Buffered, Relay, DSP+FX or Kill dry.
- MIDI capability is available over TRS (for use with a MIDI to TRS cable or converter box) or USB.
- The rear-panel Guitar/Line Level switch allows level-matching with guitars, synths, FX loops or DAW interfaces. Any combination of MicroPitch Delay parameters can be mapped to an Expression pedal.
