Carrollton, TX (August 9, 2012) – OnBoard Research Corporation has now created the industry’s first wireless system with a receiver built into a pedal tuner. The new Intellitouch Freedom One is a digital wireless system for guitar and bass, providing a high-quality digital wireless link between a guitar and a pedal tuner, eliminating the cable normally attached to a guitar.
The Freedom One has two components: A compact wireless transmitter that plugs directly into a standard 1/4 inch output jack on a guitar or bass, and a pedal tuner with a 1/4 inch output that connects to an amplifier or to other effects pedals. When using the new Intellitouch Freedom One, the performer is free to roam away from their pedal board while playing.
The Freedom One’s pedal has a built-in tuner with a large backlit display that changes from red to green when in tune. The tuner is automatic, chromatic, and displays the measured musical note on a large LCD screen for fast, easy tuning. The pedal also has a backlit footswitch that is easy to find on a dark stage. The footswitch turns on the tuner display and mutes the output while tuning.
OnBoard Research is conscious of the environment, and recently released the industry’s first rechargeable tuner. The Freedom One’s pedal tuner also has a useful feature to save batteries – a backup input jack for an audio cable, so that the pedal tuner can still be used without the wireless transmitter. If a user wishes to consume no batteries while practicing, they simply plug the pedal into a standard 9v effect pedal power supply and connect an audio cable from their guitar to the extra input jack on the pedal. This feature’s purpose is for the environment and is not needed for performance, as the Freedom One’s transmitter squeezes an astounding 10 hours out of a single AAA battery.
The Intellitouch Freedom One model #WT1 comes with OnBoard’s legendary Limited Lifetime Warranty, and has a List Price of $149.95.
