A pedal that emulates many familiar synth sounds.

Eau Claire, WI (February 10, 2015) -- Gears is many things; an overdrive, sub octave generator, and resonant filter and expression pedal input. What it means for the player is a device that allows you to emulate many familiar synth sounds, as well as create brand new ones.

Features:

  • The overdrive is a fixed sound that can be mixed from silent to LOUD - just like the OG Robot Devil.
  • This signal is fed into a clock divider, which puts out a square wave (or two) we can mix into the output.
  • The audio then travels on to the aggressive filter section. There's also a drive control allowing you to play nice with the filter, or just slam audio up against it.
  • The filter also sneaks into self oscillation, for a little bit of extra noise, if you so desire.
  • The expression pedal input allows foot control over the "Freq" knob and is the most magic trick in this new box.
  • Electronic “wubs" familiar "wahs" and plenty of other new sounds are effortlessly dialed in and modulated with your foot.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
