Electro-Harmonix Analogizer Tone Shaper / Boost Pedal
Got the digital blues? Coat your guitar in warm, organic tone. The Electro-Harmonix Analogizer Guitar Effects Pedal thaws out digitally processed guitar, and gives you the sound and feel of an analog delay without the long delay times. Boost your solos with up to 26dB of gain. Fatten your sound. The Analogizer is the antidote to harsh and lifeless sounding digital pedals.
The ANALOGIZER can be used in combination with other effects devices. Experiment with any combination to develop your own unique sound. The footswitch toggles between effect and true bypass modes.
GAIN - Controls the input gain of your ANALOGIZER. The available gain ranges from 0 dB to +"+26dB. As you turn the GAIN knob clockwise, the GAIN increases.
SPREAD - Controls the delay time of the ANALOGIZER. The delay time range is from 3.5 mS to 65 mS. As you turn the SPREAD knob clockwise, the delay time increases. Adjusting the SPREAD knob in the lower half of its range will produce tonal variations in the effect; adjustment in the upper half of the SPREAD knob's range can be used to thicken up your sound.
BLEND - Varies the mix of direct and effected signals from 100% dry when set to counter-clockwise to 100% wet at full clockwise.
VOLUME - Controls the output level of the ANALOGIZER. As you turn the VOLUME knob clockwise the volume at the output jack increases. The VOLUME control is after the BLEND knob in the circuit.
INPUT JACK - Connect the output of your instrument or another effects pedal to this jack. The input impedance presented at the INPUT jack is 1 M.
AMP JACK - Connect the AMP jack to your amplifier input or the input of another effects pedal. This is the output of the ANALOGIZER
STATUS LED and FOOTSWITCH - When the STATUS LED is lit, the ANALOGIZER is in effect mode. When the LED is off, the ANALOGIZER is in true bypass mode. Use the FOOTSWITCH to toggle between the two modes.
The ANALOGIZER comes supplied with a 9 Volt battery. The ANALOGIZER can also be powered from a 9VDC AC Adapter capable of delivering at least 20mA. The power supply must have a barrel connector with a center negative plug. The optional 9V power supply from Electro-Harmonix is 9.6DC-200BI (same as used by Boss & Ibanez).
