The compact analog multi-effect system takes the pain and complexity out of pedalboards and provides a tone station that is small enough to fit in your backpack.

Taipei, Taiwan (March 13, 2018) -- Slated for release this June, the Trinalog Effects Station is a compact analog multi-effect system that takes the pain out of complex pedalboards. Through careful miniaturization, the engineers at Trinalog Inc. have created an analog pedalboard that is small enough to fit in your backpack, but still has all the flexibility and character of a traditional system!

They have achieved this by shrinking your favorite tones into pocket-sized analog cartridges which plug directly into the base station. Once the effect cartridges are inserted, the musician can route their signal through them in any way they want using a Bluetooth mobile app.

Highlights include:

  • Sockets for up to eight independent analog effect cartridges.
  • Compact 1 foot by ½ foot form factor, fits in your gig bag or instrument case.
  • Easy tone tweaking with any Bluetooth enabled phone or tablet.
  • External effect loop to include existing pedals at any point in the signal path.
  • Expression pedal input which can be mapped to unlimited analog effect parameters.
  • Preset storage and switching directly on the base station pedal, no external devices required.

The Effects Station and four analog effect cartridges will be priced at $600 USD via Indiegogo this June!

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.
