Sounds Like Heaven: DigiTech Introduces Its Angelic Choir e-pedal
September 25, 2012
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – HARMAN’s DigiTech Stomp-tember reaches new heights with the introduction of its Angelic Choir e-pedal for the iStomp downloadable stompbox. Based on a Lexicon® Hall reverb, Angelic Choir offers cascading octave pitch shifting and creates an ethereal synthesizer-like effect for guitar.
“The Angelic Choir is a truly unique effect for creating rich, ambient and beautifully immersive guitar sounds,” said Rob Urry, vice president, HARMAN Professional Division and general manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units. “It’s especially effective when used with clean guitar chords and offers a host of sonic and textural variations for musicians seeking out of the ordinary sounds.”
The Angelic Choir uses proprietary Harman-developed DSP algorithms that process the input from a guitar to generate a totally unique ambience effect unavailable from any other effects pedal. The e-pedal’s Voices knob adjusts from a single “voice” to an entire choir or anything in between. A guitarist can use his or her volume knob or volume pedal to produce enthralling volume swells.
The DigiTech iStomp is an entirely new concept in guitar stompboxes that allows musicians to turn the iStomp into any pedal in the Stomp Shop online pedal store. Offering almost limitless sonic possibilities, the iStomp connects to an Apple iOS device where musicians can use the Stomp Shop app to load it with the e-pedal of their choice. The Stomp Shop is a free app and comes with two of the most popular requested pedals, the DigiTech Total Recall Delay™ and the DigiTech Redline Overdrive™. It gives access to more than 30 additional pedals that musicians can browse, try out and purchase, with more pedals added every month.
The DigiTech Angelic Choir e-pedal is available immediately at an introductory price of $0.99. This introductory price will run through October 24, 2012. After the introductory period the price will change to $9.99.
The DigiTech iStomp is currently available at $229.95 suggested retail.
