Gamechanger Audio Plus Sustain Pedal

Expand your instrument like never before with this intuitive and easy-to-use sustain pedal, designed to create lush tone beds just like on piano!

The PLUS pedal is a kind of audio processing engine that offers piano-style sustain for electric guitars and all other melodic instruments. This is more than just a stompbox -- it is a vast extension of your instrument that bridges the gap between rhythm and lead playing and lets players explore higher territories.


- Precise control over sustain dynamics with RISE (attack) and TAIL (decay) knobs;
- Different musical applications with two distinct multi-layer sustain modes
- Multiple layers allow stacking up to 5 notes or chords simultaneously
- Achieve organic and natural tones by dialing in gradual low pass filter with the SUSTAIN knob
- "SPLIT and MIX" slide switch lets you isolate the WET only signal in the PLUS Pedal's main output
- "SINGLE and GROUP" slide switch lets you go between two distinct modes of playing
- Many routing options with wet/dry and mix/dry outputs
- FX loop to further change the sustained sounds with other effect pedals.
- More expression with 2 level volume sensitivity on the brass pedal
- Unique design: a brilliant combination of a guitar stomp-box and piano's damper pedal. The steel case will make sure it lasts, and the classy look will make it fit on any stage, from caf guitarist to rock band to jazz trio.

Real-Time Audio Sampling
The PLUS pedal uses a proprietary real-time audio sampling algorithm to generate long, smooth layers of sustain out of any audio input signal. Compared to other "freeze" effects (based on granular synthesis read more or reverb engines) the PLUS Pedal fully preserves the core sound of your instrument, including picking dynamics, tone and pickup settings, vibrato, harmonics and other nuances. Most importantly, the PLUS Pedal has no limitations in terms of polyphony or timbre. You can use it with complex chords, as well as with single notes on a mono synthesizer.

Musical Uses
The PLUS pedal offers many different uses. Accompany your solos with sustaining chords. Build rich ambient textures and harmonically evolving soundscapes. With a flip of a switch and quick knob adjustments the PLUS turns into an ambient machine. Experimentation with other effects in the PLUS pedal's FX loop opens up endless possibilities of sound sculpting.

The sturdy brass piano-style foot pedal becomes part of your instrument. The sensation of playing the PLUS compares to a real piano or a wah-wah pedal. From jazz-voice leading to heavy post-rock drones the Plus Pedal allows the guitarist to do more with the instrument! A useful tool in any context - live performances, songwriting & arrangement, creating drones, ambient soundscapes, cinematic sound effects, and much more.

Musical Training and Improvisation
It is also a fantastic tool for aural training and practicing improvisation. Instead of thinking about which scale shape fits over what changes the PLUS Pedal focuses all of your attention on listening to the tonal relationships between the chord and the notes you play on top.
