Earthquaker Devices

Published on agosto 10th, 2011

Com a NAMM “de verão” que rolou lá fora vários fabricantes apresentaram suas novidades para o segundo semestre.

A Earthquaker Devices apresentou três. Um lançado agora e dois para o final do ano:


O Bit Commander foi lançado agora. É um Guitar Synthesizer. Olha a descrição do Fabricante:

“The Bit Commander is a monophonic analog guitar synthesizer with four octaves of vintage square wave synth tones. It’s no-nonsense interface makes it easy to add or subtract octaves to create a wide variety of sounds without having to dial in envelopes or oscillators. Ripping sub-octave thump, pulsing octave down, a lightly squared base tone and a swelling transformer based octave up all join together to make a single guitar sound like an army of olde tyme synths.

Like all analog octave effects, there are some basic rules to follow that will get you the most enjoyment from your Bit Commander. Use the neck pickup and play single notes. The best tracking occurs from the 7th fret up on all the strings. Below the 7th will still track but there will be occasional glitches and stutters. The lower the note, the harder it is for the Bit Commander to register. The use of Bass and lower registers on keyboards will yield unexpected, sometimes pleasing, sometimes disgusting results. These are not mistakes or flaws, it is the nature of analog octaves.”

Os outros dois são um novo delay e um Overdrive:

Dispatch Master


“1700ms delay with infinite repeats and an amazing huge reverb. Totally different beast than the disaster transport and ghost echo sounds. First run is pretty much complete and will ship in early/mid august. Retail at $185.00 for starters.”


“Total vanity project. I don’t think the world needs a one knob overdrive but this is the main OD I have been using on my own board for the last year so I figured some other people might like it too. Sounds like a perfect broken up amp, not to gainy yet not to clean. Works wonders as a driver in front of any other gain pedals. Sounds killer with the bit commander too. It’ll be available in September for about $105.00″

E aí? O que acharam?
