Octave and pitch pedals allow musicians to alter their tone for more range. This allows musicians to explore new sound possibilities and get even more out of other effects as well. Octave and pitch pedals synthesize the signal to create new pitches by adding sound above or below the pitch of the original note that is played. Most octave pedals are monophonic and only work for altering the octave and/or pitch of single notes.

Whammy (5th Gen)
THE LEGEND GETS BETTER OVER TIME. The legendary Whammy pedal is the premier pitch-shifting pedal for any guitarist's board, and it only gets better with time. In addition to the classic Whammy sound, we've added chordal Whammy pitch-shifting and true bypass. Whammy artists have won over 60 Grammys® using its unique pitch-shifting sound to enhance their music. Its songs echo the hallways of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame® and generate acclaim on over 700 million albums around the world. There is no doubt why Whammy is one of the most common sights on guitarists' pedalboards. The Whammy can bring new depth to your artistry. Turn your solo into raging, rebellious screams of tone or tame your crowd with highly expressive, ambient chordal bends. Energize your audience with a scratchy note frenzy, bring them in and out of the sound tunnel with musical bursts, or carry them through an existential exploration of full-fretboard pitch translation. The Whammy puts expression into the expression pedal. Don't be the last guitarist without a Whammy!
Pitch Fork Polyphonic Pitch Shifter
The Pitch Fork transposes an instrument’s pitch over a +/- three octave range and features three modes which allow the pitch to be transposed up, down or both, simultaneously. The pitch shift amount can be set to a fixed interval or continuously varied by an expression pedal or control voltage. The controls are straightforward and intuitive. An 11-position Shift switch selects the maximum transposition interval ranging from D (Detune), a shift of 17 cents, through Minor 2nd, Major 2nd, Major 3rd, Perfect 4th, Perfect 5th, Major 6th, Minor 7th, 1 Octave, 2 Octaves and 3 Octaves. A three position toggle switch controls whether the pitch is transposed up, down or both. In Dual mode, two pitch-shifted signals are output. One follows the shift knob as if in the Up position while the other creates a harmony. Dual Mode settings include M3 up + P5 up, P5 up + 1 Oct down, 1 Oct up + 1 Oct down and many others. A Blend knob controls the mix of the dry signal and the effected signal, and an EXP jack enables the player to control pitch and glissando with an expression pedal. The Latch button selects Latch or Momentary mode which affects how the footswitch and EXP input behave. In Latch mode, the footswitch toggles between effect on and buffered bypass each time it’s pressed and the EXP input continuously varies pitch. In Momentary mode the effect is only on while the footswitch is depressed and when it is released the Pitch Fork goes into bypass. In Latch mode the EXP input controls pitch shift amount, ranging from unity to the interval set by the Shift knob, and pitch varies continuously throughout the expression pedal’s range. In Momentary mode the EXP input controls glissando rate for the Pitch Fork’s footswitch. When the bypass footswitch is pressed, the Pitch Fork jumps from bypass to the interval set by the Shift knob. The amount of time it takes to reach that new note is the glissando rate. When the footswitch is released the pitch will return to unity at the same rate. That glissando time can vary between 4 milliseconds to two seconds depending on the heel/toe position of the expression pedal. The default glissando rate is 60 milliseconds when nothing is plugged into the EXP input. The Pitch Fork comes equipped with an EHX 9.6DC-200mA power supply and also runs on a 9Volt battery.

POG2 Polyphonic Octave Generator
Back in 2005, Electro-Harmonix unveiled the original POG, a polyphonic octave generator that enabled guitarists to conjure everything from the surreal jangle of an 18-string guitar, to rich, thick walls of symphonic sound. The POG2 will take you even higher. Use the new attack control to fade in lush, smooth swells. Tune in the new second sub-octave to reach deeper than ever before. The 2-pole resonant low-pass filter now includes two additional Q modes. Slide in the newly enhanced detune to further refine your sound. The POG2 delivers unrivaled tonal variations—and now you can save your favorite settings, and recall them with a click. The POG2 just plain sounds better, thanks to an enhanced algorithm that delivers a more focused and in-the-pocket harmonic performance.

Setting this switch to €œON" will cause the footswitch to act as a momentary switch (the effect will be enabled or disabled only as long as the footswitch is pressed and held). Setting this switch to €œOFF" will cause the footswitch to act as a standard latching on/off switch. Drop Effects Settings Setting 1 - Transposes guitar signal down 1 semitone Setting 2 - Transposes guitar signal down 2 semitones Setting 3 - Transposes guitar signal down 3 semitones Setting 4 - Transposes guitar signal down 4 semitones Setting 5 - Transposes guitar signal down 5 semitones Setting 6 - Transposes guitar signal down 6 semitones. Setting 7 - Transposes guitar signal down 7 semitones Setting OCT - Transposes guitar signal down 1 octave. Setting OCT + DRY - Transposes guitar signal down 1 octave and adds dry signal Note: A semitone is the smallest interval used in classical Western music, equal to a twelfth of an octave or half a tone; a half step.

Luminary Quad Octave Generator V2
Tastefully updated in all the right places, the Luminary V2 expands its watchful eye for versatility in many genres and musical tastes. • Refined octave volume knobs • Lengthened attack time • Revised envelope low-pass filter • Tremolo effect on flutter knob • Added Smart Momentary Bypassing The Luminary is a powerful polyphonic quad octave generator with features for creating inspiring symphonic gusts of sound. Operating on the Analog Devices Sharc platform, the Luminary gives you the ability to dial in any combination of four separate octaves including -2, -1, +1, and +2, the user can craft many different complex sounds and textures with crystal clear and immediate octave tracking. The Luminary has three onboard presets available for saving your go-to sounds, as a well as live mode. This means the user can have up to four custom sounds available at any moment. Get epic steel sounds with the modulation control unengaged. You’ll find more experimental options with the filter control or a tremolo effect with the flutter control. Couple the Luminary with an expression pedal to expand its creativity even more. Extended Info Four octave options available -2, -1, +1, +2 – The four knobs across the top of the pedal control the level of each octave. With the Dry/Wet control, the user can explore the ground between minimum and 12 o’clock to keep the octave signal lower than your dry signal for subtleness. The territory between 12 o’clock and maximum keeps the user’s dry signal lower than unity for a boastful octave sound. The Attack control dictates how fast the octaves bloom after the initial attack. Allow the octaves to swell in gradually at a higher attack setting. Hear immediate octave response with the attack control low or off. The Filter knob controls the cutoff of a low-pass filter on the octave signals and also increases an envelope type effect at higher settings. The Flutter knob enables a tremolo effect that can be applied to the octaves. At zero, the tremolo effect is off. Increasing this knob engages the tremolo modulation and controls the rate of the effect. The expression control allows the manipulation of any combination of these options to allow the user to customize the effectiveness of the Luminary: -1 and +1 octave volume, +1 octave volume, Attack, Flutter, and Dry/Wet
