Alongside their Bass Mono Synth pedal, Electro-Harmonix has released a similar pedal for guitar. Here's their press release...
EHX unveils the Mono Synth which transforms a guitar into 11 different synthesizers… from vintage synth emulations to fat, stacked voices to soaring lead synth sounds and more.
The Mono Synth was designed to work on guitar without any modifications, special pickups or MIDI implementation. Its intuitive layout makes it user friendly. The pedal’s DRY dial adjusts the dry guitar volume at the Synth Output while SYNTH controls the volume of the synthesizer sound at the Synth Output. Used together they let a player fine tune their mix. The SENS control, short for sensitivity, adjusts how playing dynamics trigger the synthesizer and tailors the pedal’s response to the guitarist’s instrument and playing style.
A key parameter for each of the 11 synth types can be adjusted via the CTRL knob. It varies depending on the preset and provides enhanced “tweakability.” There is also an EXP input that lets the player control an entirely different parameter in real-time with an expression pedal.
EHX Founder, Mike Matthews, stated: “From string-like synths, to aggressive resonant sounds and deep drones and bell-like tones, the Mono Synth puts a collection of hot synthesizers at your fingertips.”
The Mono Synth comes equipped with an EHX 9.6DC-200mA power supply.
