Matthews Effects Unveils the Chemist Atomic Modulator

The pedal generates organic modulation and phaser effects using three powerful algorithms: chorus/vibrato, octave, and phaser.

Richland, WA (June 12, 2017) -- The Chemist is a one-stop sonic laboratory that generates organic modulation and phaser effects using three powerful algorithms: chorus/vibrato, octave, and phaser. You can select which algorithm is active on each channel, allowing you to quickly switch between two modes and settings. The Reaction knob controls the dry signal, and the Catalyst and Formula knobs change depending on the algorithm you select.

Modes:

  • Cobalt Chorus/Vibrato - Recreate classic, lush chorus tones, or turn the Reaction (dry) knob down completely for a mind-altering vibrato
  • Lithium Octave - Generate rich polyphonic organ textures using the +/- octave and dry controls
  • Iridium Phaser - Manipulate speed and resonance combined with the dry signal to create swirling sonic elements

Note: Only one effect can be active at a time.

Specifications

  • Power requirement: 9-18v (200 mA)
  • Dimensions - 4.77" x 2.6" x 1.39" (121.1mm x 66mm x 35.3mm)

All Matthews Effects products are designed and built in the company’s Richland Wa home.

Street price is $199.99

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
