In a highly anticipated introduction that brings the soundscapes and creative versatility of Eventideâ€™s legendary Harmonizer to guitar pedal users of all genres, Eventide today unveiled the newest addition to its line of effects pedals: the PitchFactor HarmonizerÂ® stompbox.
The versatile PitchFactor showcases ten of Eventideâ€™s trademark Harmonizer pitch and delay effects as well as 1.5 seconds of stereo delay and simultaneous pitchshifting effects, which results in the most flexible stompbox in its class. PitchFactor features 100 stunning presets, instant program change, true bypass, tap tempo, three footswitches for immediate preset access, MIDI, and the lush, uncompromised Eventide sound known around the world. Useable in mono or stereo, with line- or instrument-level inputs and outputs, PitchFactor is adaptable to a wide variety of guitar or bass rigs, studio and live sound applications.
The effects featured in PitchFactor include: Micropitch, Diatonic Shifter, Quadravoxâ„¢, Harmodulatorâ„¢, H910/H949, PitchFlexâ„¢, Octaverâ„¢, Crystalsâ„¢, Harpeggiatorâ„¢ and Synthonizerâ„¢. Eventide has finessed these legendary effects into a full-featured, indestructible, cast metal performance machine that is small enough to fit on your pedal board or in your gig bag.
