Intelligent Sustain and Sostenuto Pedal

What we think…..
Committed to exploring new frontiers for music electronics, Gamechanger Audio’s debut takes the form of this, the Plus Sustain pedal. So much more than a sustain pedal, this unit lets you take the signal of any instrument and build layers of sound as lush underscore and traverse the sonic potentials of your imagination, or words to that effect! Simply put, this pedal is a gamechanger, surprisingly intuitive with boundless potential.
The pedal also comes with the ‘WET’ switch that gives you access to full wet signal when engaged.
A word from the manufacturer……
No ordinary stompbox The PLUS pedal is a new kind of audio processing engine that offers piano-style sustain for guitars and other electric instruments
Real time audio sampling is a unique technology developed by GAMECHANGER AUDIO that lets you capture and sample tiny bits of your instrument’s signal in real time and loop them into a seamless, warm and responsive sustained tone. Think of it as a smart looper that only “catches” the last segment part of each note or chord and use it to create a continuous sound.
Dynamic & Responsive The PLUS Pedal is also fully responsive to any playing style – create continuous layers of sustain incorporating vibrato, bends, harmonics, trills and other dynamic playing techniques. You can also use the whammy bar, play with a slide or experiment with amp feedback or noises – the PLUS Pedal will capture all of these tonal nuances and turn them into a continuous sound.
Reinvent your style The PLUS Pedal is an extension of your instrument, letting you create multiple layers of sounds as-you-go. From jazz-voiceleading to heavy post-rock drones – the Plus Pedal lets you do more with your instrument!
Live Performances The PLUS Pedal is incredibly useful for both solo performers and bands – create rich harmonies and achieve a huge sound on stage – the audience won’t know what hit them.
Songwriting The PLUS Pedal opens up a whole new dimension for song arrangments and chord-melody. It is almost like having an extra hand.
Practice & Aural training Instead of thinking about what scale shapes fit over which chords, the PLUS Pedal encourages you to focus on listening and develops your understanding of intervals and tonal relationships.
Sound Effects and Ambience Even with no experience in sound production – you will be able to transform your instrument into a full-on sound effects laboratory. Great for ambient genres or movie scores.
The PLUS Pedal has one main mono 1/4 inch jack input. To plug in a microphone, you’ll need to use an XLR adaptor. The Second Output “DRY OUT” will send the DRY signal at all times (it also doubles as a footswitch input jack).
The Main Output on the pedal’s far left side can send out a mixed Dry / Wet signal, depending on the position of the Toggle switch. When the toggle is set to MIX, then the Main Output will send out a mixed signal: when the Pedal is not engaged it will simply send the DRY signal through unafffected; as soon as the pedal is pressed down, the WET signal will be added to the mix.
When the toggle switch is set to WET Only, the DRY signal will be removed from the Main output. This mode is called “WET ONLY”. The DRY output can be used for many purposes – for example – create a stereo effect with two amps, or split you effects chain. Another option would be to keep the dry signal plugged into a recording unit at all times.
The FX Loop allows you to link the PLUS Pedal with any other effects unit and use it to modify the Wet or the Dry signal separately. For example – add a tremolo unit into the FX Loop and apply it to the WET signal only. That way you can play a chord, sustain it with the PLUS pedal and it will have a nice pulsating effect, while anything you play on top will be unaffected by the tremolo.
Or you can put a Overdrive pedal into the FX Loop, set the Toggle Switch to DRY and use this setting to play clean chords, and lay overdriven fills on top of them. This is really an open platform for experimentation and we encourage you to dust off some old unused pedals and try them out in a whole new context.
