Vintage Revolution Announces the PedalPro System

The PedalPro System includes an analogue multi-effect processor and foot controller and allows multiple analogue effects to be controlled digitally without the use of DSPs.

Den Haag, the Netherlands (June 7, 2012) – The PedalPro System, which includes an analogue multi-effect processor and foot controller, showcases a ground-breaking new technology that, for the first time, allows multiple analogue effects to be controlled digitally without the use of DSPs and using only the best, high-end analogue audio components. PedalPro System offers musicians the holy grail of sound effects units: a state-of-the-art analogue effects chain in which the parameters of every effect can be controlled, stored and recalled at the press of a button or modified live using an expression pedal.

The PedalPro Multi-effect contains 14 classic analogue effects: a solid state compressor/limiter, a JFET distortion, a stereo optical noise gate, a fasel-based optical wah, vowel generators, envelope filters, an optical phaser, a tremolo panner, boost, a BBD chorus-flanger-delay, and a stereo volume pedal.

Every effect's parameters can be controlled, stored and recalled via a central digital interface. Unlike digital sound processing units, the PedalPro uses a smart, four-processor based architecture that enables users to control their analogue effects without the sound ever being digitized. Which means users get to enjoy the best, studio-quality analogue sound available on the market while gaining a controllability and creative scope never before possible.

Key features:
• 14 classic analogue effects designed to work together simultaneously and in any number of configurations. Uses 2000-plus high-end components (including Neutrik connectors, 21 relays, 13 custom-made optoresistors, 5 BBDs, and 16 matched pair transistors) to deliver unbeatable sound, maximum transparency and ultra-low noise performance.
• Ability to assign an expression pedal to any analogue parameter including the wah, wet/dry, volume, gain, depth, tempo and others to alter their range as you play.
• Option to integrate and control external effects using pre and post loops, internal mixers and midi out connections without compromising the audio quality.
• More sound options and the ability to produce entirely new sounds owing to the number of parameters accessible and their modulation functions.
• One high-input impedance JFET buffer instead of several multi-stage stomp box buffers.
• Easy and intuitive to use. 
• Higher headroom and dynamic due to 30V internal power supply (+/-15V).
• 21 golden-plated moisture-free relays to provide the optimum connection between your effects and true bypass.
• Silent switching between presets.
• Wide variety of different routing possibilities.
• Ability to create entirely new modulating waveforms and synchronisable functions for all-new sounds.
• Full recall and storage of 500 complete analogue presets and an unlimited number on a MAC/PC-based preset library using USB interface.
• Made in the Netherlands with the tightest manufacturing quality control to ensure total reliability and a lifelong investment.

The Pedalino Foot Controller brings users complete control of the PedalPro Multi-effect via four multi-level pressure-sensor pads. Less than a centimetre thick, Pedalino's radical ergonomic shape and large switching pads reduce errors while eliminating the mechanical noise inherent to existing foot controllers. Users can switch between presets with minimal effort and maximum control, comfort, and precision.

Ideal for live performances, Pedalino users can enjoy a clean stage, while remotely adjusting, storing and recalling the parameters of their presets on the fly. Using an expression pedal, users can adjust the range of their parameters in real-time, as they play.

Key features:
• No moving parts and nothing to break down for a longer life-span.
• Easy to use. No programming required thanks to a bidirectional protocol (ADES). Sound names, preset parameters and their configurations are instantly downloadable from the PedalPro.
• Jump silently between presets in one motion.
• Extra-large, visible display.
• Change guitars in total silence using the mute button.
• Tune your guitar with all-new precision and ease.
• Modify effects' parameters while playing live using an expression pedal.
• Customise the level of force required to activate the footpads.
