Tempode not only works as a stand-alone pedal, but is designed to enhance clockless MIDI controllers.

Cascade Range, OR (May 29, 2014) -- The recent eruption of guitar effects that sync to MIDI Clock has yielded over 50 pedals from 20 different manufacturers, including Strymon, TC, Zvex, Source Audio, Eventide, and MOOG.

Tempode, Molten Voltage’s sparkly new MIDI Clock Generator let you harness the potential of these pedals by syncing them all to one clock, one compact device.

Gone are the days of tap dancing on different effects, or worse, becoming a knob goblin on stage! Finally, every delay, tremolo, phaser, flanger, and filter in perfect time! Tempode

Tempode is Clock-Solid. Its only goal in life is to sync, so musicians can swim. Using a dedicated device eliminates the problems inherent in jittery laptop clocks. Updating over 25,000 times a second, ensures Tempode’s unparalleled accuracy.

Tempode not only works as a stand-alone pedal, but is designed to enhance clockless MIDI controllers like Rocktron’s MIDI Raider, VooDoo Lab’s Ground Control, GigRig’s G2, and any others. Tempode allows a tapped tempo, and stores the tempo for each MIDI preset.

Tempode is shipping now. MSRP $175, $140 Street.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
