An easy way to add depth and heaviness to your riffs and solos.

Risskov, Denmark (September 13, 2016) -- TC Electronic's new Mimiq Doubler is the first pedal ever to offer musicians authentic studio-grade doubling.

With its proprietary doubling algorithm, Mimiq Doubler perfectly recreates the random yet subtle changes in time, pitch, and attack that occur when double tracking in the studio. Finally letting musicians access those larger-than-life recorded tones live on stage through their pedalboards.

From bone-crushing quad-tracked riffs ala Metallica to sizzling triple-tracked lead lines ala Randy Rhodes and anywhere in between, it's all possible with Mimiq Doubler.

Mimiq Doubler can add up to three extra tracks for a world of high-quality doubling tones. And with Stereo I/O thrown into the mix, musicians can go from subtle tone-fattening to head-spinningly huge sounds in no time at all.

The Tightness control defines how tight the doubling is. From almost superhumanly tight tracking to a more loose and laid-back performance.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
