pitch

Tame it ain’t, but if smart pitch warping with minimal hassle (and real estate) is your bag, Mike Matthews’ latest is a gem.


Recorded with a Royer R-121 and a Shure SM57 going into an Audient iD44 then into GarageBand with no EQ-ing, compression, or effects.
Clip 1: Curtis Novak Jag-V neck pickup into J. Rockett Audio Archer feeding the Pitch Fork + then an Ibanez Analog Delay Mini then a Sound City SC30 combo. First Pitch Fork + setting uses the right footswitch to ramp up a perfect fifth. Next, the left-hand footswitch is engaged so that when the right footswitch’s momentary function is engaged it ramps up both a perfect fifth and a minor third.
 

Ratings

Pros:
Yields a plethora of pitch-shifting options in a modest, flexible, and expandable footprint.

Cons:
Tends to hype and mask your guitar’s voice, even at conservative settings. Chord tracking could be better.
