Switch between a stereo and mono amp rig without having to rewire your entire pedalboard.

Richland, WA (May 11, 2017) -- Purify, perfect, and transform your guitar signal tone using the power of the Alchemist.

The Alchemist allows you to split your mono signal or sum your stereo signal to mono, giving you the power to switch between a stereo and mono amp rig without having to rewire your entire pedalboard. Using two high-quality, independent buffers, the Alchemist also restores high-end frequency loss that occurs from passing through multiple pedals and cables, maintaining the purity of your signal and creating a natural response that sounds like plugging straight into your amp!

With the Alchemist, you can transform your guitar signal into several useful configurations:

Features:

  • Use the independent buffers as an input and output buffer to maintain your guitar tone over long cable runs.
  • Leave the black input unplugged to automatically split your signal to an always-on tuner without any tone loss, or create a parallel mono signal path.
  • Leave the black output unplugged to automatically combine your stereo inputs into the red output.

Note: When changing its configuration, we recommend that you power-cycle the Alchemist by unplugging the unit for 2 seconds.

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.
