DigiTech_TRIOANAHEIM, California – At NAMM 2015, HARMAN’s DigiTech is introducing the TRIO Band Creator Pedal, providing the ability to create a band that plays along with the user. The TRIO Band Creator Pedal listens to what is played and automatically generates bass and drum parts that match chord progressions and rhythmic feel. Users simply need to plug a guitar into TRIO, press the footswitch to teach TRIO the chords and rhythm, then press the footswitch again to start playing with a customized personal band.

“TRIO is like no pedal ever created – it’s an entirely new type of musical accompaniment device,” said Tom Cram, Marketing Manager, DigiTech. “With TRIO, one musician can now sound like a full band. It’s an incredibly creative and useful performance tool for solo artists, or just a great way to have fun while practicing and jamming.”

The DigiTech TRIO provides seven musical genres to choose from including Rock, Pop, Country, Alternative Rock, Blues, R&B and Jazz. Up to 12 song styles are available for each genre and the player can select between 4/4 and 3/4 time signatures. TRIO can learn up to three different song parts – for example, verse, chorus and bridge – which can then be recalled on the fly as the song plays back.

TRIO offers total control over the virtual band’s performance. In addition to its Genre and Style selector knobs, TRIO’s Bass and Drums controls provide volume adjustment for both instruments and the Tempo knob locks in the groove.

The Alt Time button selects an alternate half time or double time setting for each song part. TRIO even provides a selection of built-in effects for your guitar that vary according to the genre selected, letting users play in a power trio, jazz trio or other ensemble at the touch of a button.

TRIO can be connected to a guitar amp or directly into a mixer for use with a PA system. A headphone jack with level control is also included. An optional DigiTech FS3X footswitch can be connected to the TRIO for hands-free selection of song parts and styles. The TRIO comes with a power supply and its rugged-stage-worthy metal enclosure ensures reliable operation gig after gig.

The DigiTech TRIO Band Creator Pedal will be available in March 2015 at a suggested retail price of $224.95.

DOD_BoneshakerANAHEIM, California – Grit your teeth and hold on! HARMAN’s DOD today announced the introduction of its Boneshaker distortion pedal, created to deliver massive gain and supercharged with a 3-band parametric EQ section. Legendary pedal guru Mark Wentz of Black Arts Toneworks designed the Boneshaker’s circuit specifically for extended-range guitars, baritone guitars and bass, to shake the audience to the core with crushing low-end impact.

“The DOD Boneshaker is designed to be the definitive distortion pedal for metal, hard rock, alternative and other styles that demand pummeling low-end power,” said Tom Cram, Marketing Manager, DigiTech. “It’s voiced for down-tuned guitars, 7- and 8-string guitars, baritone guitars and works equally well with bass. By itself, or stacked the Boneshaker lives up to its name.”

The Boneshaker’s Distortion knob adjusts the amount of distortion applied to the signal, from a taste of added grit to massive amounts of gain. The Depth control increases or decreases the overall low-frequency “growl” of extended-range instruments. The Level knob adjusts the overall volume level of the distortion effect, and can add a huge volume boost if desired.

The Boneshaker’s 3-band parametric EQ allows the player to dial in his or her tone for any amount of gut-churning lows, bare-knuckle mids and cutting highs. Packing an incredible amount of tone-shaping flexibility into a small space, the Low, Mid and High controls have stacked knobs, one that selects the amount of boost or cut for its frequency range and another knob that selects the center frequency of the EQ.

Like all DOD pedals, the Boneshaker offers true bypass operation to keep the tone of the instrument pure when the effect is not in use. The pedal can be powered by a 9-volt battery or the optional PS200R power supply. For adventurous players who aren’t afraid to experiment, the Boneshaker stacks well with other overdrive/distortion pedals and fuzz. The Boneshaker looks as unsubtle as it sounds, with a road-tough black metal housing and graphics that would look right at home on a custom chopper.

The DOD Boneshaker overdrive will be available in March 2015 at a suggested retail price of $187.44.

DigiTech_PolaraSALT LAKE CITY, Utah – HARMAN’s DigiTech today announced the introduction of its Polara Stereo Reverb Pedal, offering an expansive palette of reverb effects. The DigiTech Polara gives guitar and bass players the depth and dimensionality of seven studio-standard Lexicon reverbs and flexible sound tailoring capabilities in an easy to use pedal with a new, compact size.
“The reverbs that we co-developed with Lexicon for the HardWire RV-7 wowed guitarists everywhere,” said Tom Cram, Market Manager, DigiTech. “With the Polara we retain that studio quality legacy, as well as add some cool new spacey sounds.”

The DigiTech Polara’s full spectrum of seven reverb types includes Room, Hall, Spring, Plate, Modulated, Reverse and Halo. Room provides intimate warmth, while Hall offers a vast soundspace. Spring faithfully reproduces the “sproing” and surf-music “splash” of classic guitar amp spring reverb, while Plate delivers the unmistakable cavernous sound of the large metal plate reverb units found in well-heeled professional recording studios. Modulated mode adds a richly textured chorus effect while Reverse serves up backwards-tape effects for head-spinning sonic psychedelia. As if that wasn’t enough, Polara introduces DigiTech’s new Halo effect, with cascading octaves interspersed in the reverb decay for a spellbinding sonic aura.

The Polara’s Type control selects the type of reverb and its Level knob adjusts the amount of reverb mixed with the dry signal. The Decay control adjusts the length of the reverb duration and a Liveliness knob shapes the amount of high-frequency content. The Reverb Tails on/off toggle switch controls whether the reverb tails linger or are cut off when the effect it switched off.
The Polara offers true bypass operation, which keeps the unaffected tone of the instrument intact when the reverb is not in use. It has mono and stereo input and output jacks for easy integration into any pedalboard and rig, and the pedal’s newly designed soft-click footswitch provides reliable, noise-free operation. Included with the Polara is DigiTech’s exclusive gen2 Stomplock™ knob guard that locks the player’s settings in place and prevents accidental changes onstage, and a custom-cut hook and loop pad to securely attach the Polara to a pedalboard.

The DigiTech Polara Stereo Reverb Pedal will be available in mid November 2014 at a suggested retail price of $187.44

JamMan Vocal XTSALT LAKE CITY, Utah – HARMAN’s DigiTech today introduced the JamMan Vocal XT, the first ever dedicated stompbox looper for vocalists. The JamMan Vocal XT makes looping easier than ever before by giving vocalists the ability to create harmonies or rhythmic counterpoints with simple presses of a footswitch. A vocalist can connect their favorite mic directly to the JamMan Vocal XT and its built-in studio quality dbx® mic preamp with phantom power will retain true vocal tone ensuring original vocals and loops sound crystal clear.

The JamMan Vocal XT features up to 10 minutes of stereo looping and SilentClear™ technology, which clears the pedal’s loop memory without starting playback first. The pedal also provides the ability for a vocalist to link together multiple JamMan Vocal, Express or Solo XT’s through an innovative pedal-linking capability called JamSync.

“We have received numerous requests from vocalists looking for a dedicated looper,” stated Tom Cram, Market Manager, DigiTech. “Taking advantage of the JamSync technology to connect multiple XT series loopers, we felt it was a great time to add a vocal looper to the JamMan family.”

The JamMan Vocal XT’s control layout is simple yet incredibly versatile – a single pedal switch, three Record, Dub and Play LEDs and a Loop Level knob provide access to a multitude of looping functions. All loop recording, playback and loop overdubbing can be controlled simply by clicking on the pedal switch. The three LEDs indicate looping and phrase sampling status – red for record, green for playback and yellow for overdubbing. This simple but effective looping scheme has been standard on single-button JamMan loopers for years to create lush, richly textured loops. The JamMan Vocal XT’s input has also been optimized to allow multiple JamMan Vocal XT’s to be connected to each other to create synchronized multi-track vocal loops quickly and easily.

The JamMan Vocal XT includes a power supply and measures just 4.8 x 3.4 x 2.1 inches, the JamMan Vocal XT fits easily on any pedalboard and its rugged metal case is built to take the rigors of the road.

The JamMan Vocal XT is available immediately at a suggested retail price of $229.95.

DOD_410_StandingSALT LAKE CITY, Utah – HARMAN’s DigiTech today announced the introduction of the DOD Bifet Boost 410, a guitar volume boost/EQ pedal with a twist – the new Bifet Boost 410 features a Buffer On/Off switch that takes the built-in buffer in or out of the circuit to deliver the best-possible performance from wherever the pedal is placed in the player’s effects chain.

“Some players like to use their pedals in true bypass to maintain a pure signal path throughout their pedalboard, while others like a pedal with a buffer to counter the signal loss of boards that are packed with a lot of pedals,” said Tom Cram, marketing coordinator, DigiTech. “The Bifet Boost 410’s selectable Buffer On/Off makes it adaptable to any player’s setup and sonic requirements.” In addition, the selectable operation enables the Bifet Boost 410 to be used as the first pedal in the chain in front of a fuzz pedal – many fuzz pedals don’t sound right or react properly to a player’s changes in guitar volume with a buffered pedal in front of the fuzz.

The DOD Bifet Boost 410’s Volume control can deliver up to 20dB of clean boost– enough to add anywhere from a hint of grit to a huge 20+dB of boost to hit the front end of an amplifier and drive an already cooking tube amp into distortion. More than just a straight volume boost pedal, the Bifet Boost 410’s rotary EQ Tone control can tailor the sound from dark and sweet to bright and sparkling and everything in between.

The Bifet Boost 410 also works well as an “always on” pedal to create a “bigger” tone with greater touch sensitivity. Many experienced players will find that using the pedal this way enables them to get an expanded range of dynamics, tonal shadings and overdrive flavors simply by adjusting their guitar volume knob.

The DOD Bifet Boost 410 further improves on the original 410 Bi-Fet Preamp with the addition of its bright blue LED indicator that’s easy to see on any stage, and a 9-volt DC power supply input. Reflecting its vintage roots, the Bifet Boost 410 features DOD’s classic retro-1980s graphics, easy-grip knobs and road-tough metal enclosure.

The DOD Bifet Boost 410 will be available in August 2014 at a suggested retail price of $149.95.
