PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location in Frankfurt, Germany, for the 2010 Musikmesse show where he visits the Morpheus FX booth. In this segment, we get a demo and walk-thru of their newest effects pedal - the Capo Pedal.
With the Capo pedal you can electronically capo your guitar and maintain perfect pitch. For example, play an E chord in standard tuning, then use the Capo pedal to up tune your guitar so the chord is changed to an F, F#, G, G#, A, Bb or B. In addition, the CAPO pedal has Full Octave Up Pitch and a great-sounding Octaver/12- string emulator that causes your 6-string to sound like a 12-string, with octaves for strings 3-6, and doubles strings 1 and 2.
It pedal also features effect-toggling so you can instantly toggle back and forth between the up pitch and the Effect Off for a cool up/down pitch-shift effect during rapid ascending/ descending arpeggios and scale runs.The Capo uses proprietary polyphonic pitch up algorithms that maintain perfect harmonic accuracy and tonally correct overtones.
