Electro-Harmonix, currently launching pedals at the rate of more than one a week, has introduced the Slammi Plus Polyphonic Pitch Shifter/Harmony Pedal featuring: ‘glitch-free pitch shifting over a +/- three octave range and with the ability to transpose up, down, or both simultaneously’.
An 11-position Shift switch selects the transposition interval starting with Detune for a chorus or doubling effect and includes the following: Minor 2nd, Major 2nd, Minor 3rd, Major 3rd, Perfect 4th, Perfect 5th, Major 6th, 1 Octave, 2 Octaves and 3 Octaves.
The pedal’s Dual Mode outputs two separate pitch-shifted intervals simultaneously and provides 11 interval combinations. The Slammi Plus also features an X-Fade function where the pitch shifted interval is fixed (does not bend) and the pedal cross-fades between the player’s dry note and pitch shifted note or cross-fades from one pitch shifted interval to another.
The Slammi Plus is fully polyphonic at all times and EHX says it provides enhanced flexibility in setting the heel position’s pitch shifted interval. A Blend control is also included that allows the user fine tune their wet/dry mix.
The Slammi Plus comes with a 9 Volt battery and also accepts most third party power supplies including the optional EHX9.6DC-200mA PSU. It is available now and carries a US Street Price of $168. No UK price has been quoted.
