Electro Harmonix Mainframe Bit Crusher

Effects Pedal for Electric Guitar & Bass

  • Bit Crusher
  • Produces 80s-style lo-fi sounds reminiscent of early arcade games, home consoles and home computers
  • Reduces the sample rate from 48 kHz to 110 Hz, which leads to reduced audio quality and aliasing, ranging from fairly "clean" sounds to unrecognizable "crushed" sounds
  • Bit crushing from 24 bits to 1 bit increases sampling errors that creatively degrade the sound quality for dirty "old school" sounds
  • Selectable high / low / band pass filter
  • Sample Rate Tuning mode analyzes the input signal in real time and adjusts the sample rate to match the pitch of your signal or a specified interval above your signal
  • Programmable preset or expression pedal setting allows the sound to be saved or any combination of the controls on the mainframe to be controlled with an external expression pedal
  • Controls: Vol, Blend, Bit Depth, Sample Rate, Peak, Freq
  • Push buttons: EXP / Preset
  • Switch: Filter HPF / BPF / LPF
  • LED: EXP / Preset Mode, Effect On
  • Foot switch: Effect bypass
  • Input: 6.3 mm jack
  • Output: 6.3 mm jack
  • Expression pedal input: 6.3 mm stereo jack
  • Power supply connection: barrel connector 5.5 x 2.1 mm, negative polarity inside
  • Power supply via 9 V DC power supply (included)
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 70 x 114 x 53 mm

Note: Battery operation is not supported.

Poco di più di un banale Bit Crusher
mauropallido, 30.04.2021
Inizialmente piuttosto deluso. Sin dalla progettazione poco attenta, dove in un pedalino di dimensioni assai ridotte sono stati posizionati 6 potenziometri vicinissimi e duri da modulare, tanto da non riuscire ad utilizzarli con facilità poiché non vi è spazio sufficiente per le dita.
Deludente mi è parsa anche la risposta che da con un pedale d'espressione, ma poi lavorandoci un attimo si trova il modo di renderlo utile. Anche le caratteristiche e le possibilità di modulare il suono mi son sembrate meno complete di quel che mi aspettavo, ma smanettandoci ha evidenziato altre potenzialità, come quello di trarne un interessante suono simile ad un Fuzz molto sporco e "granulare".
In sostanza inizialmente mi ha un po' deluso, perché mi è parso poco di più di un banale Bit Crusher, ma lavorandoci il pedale fornisce sicuramente una buona gamma di possibilità di modulare il suono, e con un po' di pazienza si possono ottenere senza dubbio alcuni suoni interessanti e caratteristi. Infine la qualità del suono è sicuramente molto buona.
