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.
Tone town! Picking up where the Wizard of Pitch left off, the Super Wizard is a behemoth of pitch shifting, glitching, and lo-fi echo delights. This new machine for new music starts with the sample based pitch shifting circuit from our Wizard of Pitch. We then added footswitch controls for the “Bend” switch (toggle still available!) and a “Dindindin” button in the middle.
This little button suspends recording into the input buffer, leaving the current sample to repeat until the button is released. It tends to sound like “dindindin!” You can tune the noise via the pitch knob.
Tones. The Wizard began as a simple idea: Cut the Pitchgrinder down to a
single pitch shifter, with a mix control. What it became is something much more exciting, with brand new capabilities.
The pedal’s resolution has been cranked up to 32 bits from the
'Grinder’s 8, but the same lo-fi glitchy sound. There is a mix control. Then we have the “speed” control. When set to zero, the Wizard behaves like a standard pitch shifter, but as you turn up the speed your output will cross fade between the wet and dry signals, allowing for beautiful moving soundscapes, or stimulating modulation at higher rates.
