The new upgrades include tap tempo, rate multiplier switch, and a glide effect.

Onalaska, WI (January 11, 2018) -- Providing a big update to the original TetraStep, the TetraStep MKII provides users with an even more exciting addition to the realm of crazy noise-generating effects pedals. This thing will definitely get your creative juices flowing. While the pedal can be used with guitar and bass, it also works great with synths and drum machines as a desktop unit. While the original TetraStep had four pitch controllable steps and an intuitive user interface, the TetraStep MkII adds the following features:

  • Tap Tempo
  • Sync In (0-20v) & Sync Out (0-5v)
  • Illuminated on/off button for each step
  • Rate Multiplier Switch
  • Glide Effect

The TetraStep MKII sells for a $219 Street Price and will be available in limited quantities directly from Mattoverse Electronics at https://mattoverse.com and through the Mattoverse Electronics Reverb Shop at https://reverb.com/shop/mattoverse

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.

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.
