Morpheus FX - Capo Pedal Demo

April 6, 2010


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.
