Digital pitch, modulation and other FX 05/06/22
It seems like only last week when we spoke to Ilja - oh wait it was (almost). Fast forward to NAMM and and we're looking their new Bigsy Pedal, a digital pitch bending pedal made in collaboration with the legendary Bigsby company.
Available now priced at £318 from dealers worldwide.
Polyphonic pitch shifting and a reproduction of the BIGSBY tremolo arm string bending and vibrato effects.
A spring loaded rocking foot pedal for upwards and downwards pitch bending movements.
High quality buffered bypass and seamless transitions into and out of bypass.
Multi function LED lit knobs. LED colour and intensity are indicators of the selected parameters and values.
AUTO mode, with an LFO controlling the pitch bend rate and the foot pedal controlling pitch bend depth.
Up to 12 semitone pitch shifts in both directions. The pitch bend range can be set separately for both directions.
Foot pedal and pitch shift direction invert switch. BLEND control for mixing in the DRY signal to achieve harmonizer or chorus sounds.
DETUNE control for emulating the tuning instability of hardware tremolo systems.
Full MIDI PC and CC control over all parameters and extended functionality. A 3.5 mm TRS to 5 pin DIN MIDI adapter is included.
10 user preset slots accessible via MIDI PC.
Expression output for controlling other gear with the spring loaded dual direction foot pedal, with adjustable expression depth and centre position offset controls.
Latching mode is accessible via an external footswitch. The BIGSBY Pedal is compatible with both momentary and toggle type footswitches with a TS 1/4 inch jack. A KNOB LOCK option to prevent accidental parameter adjustment during performances.
