Diablo FX launches Sound Control 6 wireless guitar FX control pedal

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 11, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Diablo FX, a new player in the guitar market, introduces a truly innovative solution for effects pedal players: Sound Control 6.

The Sound Control system is the first wireless all-in-one effects pedal management system which enables guitar players to turn on and off multiple analog or digital effects in one stomp. Sound Control 6 is unique because of its wireless design, which means no cords and power strips at the front of the stage or in the way at practice.

Sound Control 6 is the first high fidelity, versatile pedal management system allowing any combination of effects pedals.

Sound Control 6 features

  • Convenience
    Everyone who uses pedals when performing experiences the same dilemma: set-up and break-down takes forever, power cords clutter up the stage and the performers had better be very practiced and skilled to stomp on the right pedal, or combination of pedals, at the right time. Joseph Lockyer, co-founder of Diablo FX, was no stranger to these challenges, and, playing more and bigger gigs, he really needed a simpler solution. At that point, he and Rick Schwab invented a new wireless pedal, the first of its kind: Sound Control 6, to be introduced to the world for the first time at NAMM 2013.
    “I will never go back to pushing pedals again, because Sound Control 6 makes everything so easy. My set-up takes me about seven minutes now: take out my amps, plug in, take out my wireless pedal and put it on stage, and I’ll go have a beer while the rest of the guys are still setting up,” Lockyer says with a grin and adds “At the end of the night, I pick up my pedal, throw it in the bag, close my box up and I’m done.”
  • Control
    Not only is set-up easy, playing with Sound Control 6 makes your performance simpler and better. It is hard to turn a number of pedals on and off at the same time, within half a second. Even the most practiced players easily miss pedals again and again. Sound Control 6 can be placed anywhere on stage and it allows to control up to six effects pedals or effects loops. Simply select the pedals you want to be “on” for up to four different channels. Now, you can turn on or off up to six pedals on each channel with one button push. Listening to all the changes that happen with just one button click is amazing: turning on the EQ, adding analog delay, a little reverb – players appreciate the huge benefit to be able to do all those things without having to perform the usual “tap dance”.
  • High fidelity
    When a pedal is not in use, Sound Control 6 bypasses it altogether. When using stomp boxes, the audio signal is degraded traveling through various pedals in line, regardless whether they are turned on or off. With Sound Control 6, however, a pedal that is not in use, will be physically bypassed, so the audio signal is not going through that pedal at all. This allows for minimal signal disruption. Another factor is the length of cable run across the stage. With regular stomp boxes, the signal has to travel through 75 feet of cord or more. Sound Control 6 only requires a couple of feet of cable to be connected, further decreasing loss of fidelity.
  • Versatility
    Sound Control 6 allows for great versatility. “You can use it for up to six effects on each of the four channels, or as an amp switching device or use it as an effects loop for a digital processor. You can do so many things with it, it’s crazy” says Lockyer.

Sound Control 6 is available to purchase for MSRP $599 USD.

Robert Tubb releases The Wablet – Scanned Synthesis on a Multi-touch Interface

Robert Tubb has released The Wablet app, a physics based synthesiser and noise toy.

Robert Tubb The Wablet

An animated mesh of springs can be vibrated with the fingers. The Mesh’s displacement around a path on this mesh is read as an audio waveform, and hence your gestures are turned into sound.

Complex evolving drones, chiptunes bleeps or full on noise can be produced, and beautiful undulating patterns created.

The physical properties of the mesh can be changed using the sliders, new sound-paths can be drawn onto the Mesh and the App comes with a Max/MSP patch for wireless MIDI control and more in depth adjustable parameters.

The Wablet is available to purchase for 0.89 EUR. Note: the app is currently not available in the US because of a patent on the underlying algorithm.

The Bass Egg Project—Small, portable, sleek, wireless, and easy to use speaker

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 20, 2012 - comment 0 comments
The Bass Egg

The Bass Egg Project at Kickstarter has launched to make everything in your world a speaker.

The Bass Egg project began over a year ago when one team member was given a reverberation loudspeaker by his father. While the use of this technology in loudspeakers existed, there was much left to be desired. The only products available were either high in sound quality but not portable, or a novelty product encased in cheap plastic – not durable and lacking in sound quality. In addition, no versions were easy to use or appealing in their design.

Driven by the desire to design and manufacture the “best in class” reverberation speaker, our goal was to develop a product with the following attributes: Small and Portable, Sleek, Wireless and Easy to Use, and Durable. Of course, big, Quality Sound was a must.

After many long nights, much frustration and several trips to potential manufacturers – the Bass Egg was hatched.

The Bass Egg Project is looking for backers to pledge $150,000 USD by Friday Dec 14, 2012.
