Electro-Harmonix adds Superego+

Electro-Harmonix keeps up its frantic pace of new product launches with the new Superego+ announced today. The Superego+ uses the original Superego’s ability to create synth effects, sound layers, glissandos, infinite sustain and more with the addition of a complete effects section featuring 11 effect types, an EXP input for effect parameter control plus an EXT jack for a 3-button controller.
The Superego+ offers the following effects:
DETUNE: pitch detune, EXP pedal controls pitch
DELAY: warm, analogue sounding delay, feedback is preset, EXP controls delay time up to 2 seconds
ECHO: pristine digital delay, feedback is preset, EXP pedal controls delay time up to 2 seconds
FLANGE: Electric Mistress style w/filter matrix, rate and feedback. EXP pedal controls rate
PHASE: Small Stone style phase shifting with rate and depth control. EXP controls rate
MOD: pitch-based vibrato or chorus. EXP controls rate
ROTARY: rotary speaker style sound. Depth controls tweeter/horn balance. EXP pedal controls rate
TREM 1: sine wave tremolo. EXP controls rate
TREM 2: square wave tremolo. EXP controls rate
PITCH: pitch shifting effect over a +/- one octave range. EXP controls whammy
FILTER: resonant low-pass filter. EXP pedal controls frequency
EHX says the pedal’s user interface: ‘…provides exceptional control and flexibility’. The Superego+ is equipped with Dry, Effect, Attack, Decay, Threshold, Layer and Gliss knobs, plus Rate and Depth knobs for the Effects Section. Four foot-switchable Freeze modes: Moment, Sustain, Auto and Latch, plus a Live Effects mode where the dry signal is routed through the built-in effects and the internal synth engine is disabled, are also included.
The polyphonic Superego+ works with guitar as well as other instruments including bass, keyboards, vocals, drums, etc. No UK price was quoted but in the USA it is destined to sell for a street price of $250.
