Here is the new GorillaBox 12U briefcase for musicians who plan to travel. This eurorack case is 104hp wide with 4 rows, yet is compact enough to be a carry on when flying commercial airlines!

Zvex Instant Lo-Fi Junky pedal on Guitar

Here is the Zvex Instant Lo-Fi Junky pedal on a guitar being played by our customer, Mark Tschanz.

The change in sound can be subtle, but when you are playing it can inspire you to play differently than you would otherwise. And when you turn the Instant Lo-Fi off, the sound is so ordinary that makes you want to switch it back on immediately! :-)

Eowave Ribbon Controller

We wanted to show the striking visual beauty of the Eowave Ribbon in a darkened environment, which makes it a standout for live shows!

In this video we are using the Eowave Ribbon to control a Dave Smith Instruments Evolver whose output is being processed by an Eventide Space.

GorillaBox 12U Briefcase in action (silent till 0:28 sec.)

Flight Of Harmony 'Sound Of Shadows' Insert

We wanted to show the Sound Of Shadow's insert in this video. You can patch the delay out to an external processor module and affect just the delayed signal. In this instance we're using the WMD Geiger Counter to add some bit crushing to our delays. This works great with all kinds of effects too. Try a ring modulator, a distortion, or even another delay for some great results.

Instant Lo-Fi Pocket Piano

Here is the Critter and Guitari Pocket Piano GR running through Zvex Effects' latest creation, the Instant Lo-Fi Junky.

Effects range from beautiful vibrato to all out weird warbling. The Instant Lo-Fi works great with everything we've plugged into it. It's hard to imagine life without these great instruments once you've used them a bit. Both absolute keepers!

Hey everyone. We received the latest pedals from SubDecay today: the Proteus and Quasar DLX.

The Quasar DLX is a full featured analog phaser. The possibilities range from classic "on the slow parts" - to thick watery vibrato - to all out mad science craziness. Eleven LFO shapes, and the ability to control them with either tap tempo, or manually. When controlled manually the speed/ratio knob has two ranges. A normal range, and a high speed range accessed by turning the knob all the way to the right. As the knob is turned back to the left it goes faster and faster and faster... The mix control goes to 100% for pitch vibrato tones that most phasers simply don't allow. Voice control allows both positive and negative regeneration.

The Proteus is an ultimate plug and play filter pedal.Building on the success of Prometheus, Proteus embraces a very different philosophy. In short, Proteus is what many people wished Prometheus had been- simpler and much easier to use on the fly. The envelope filter mode is much more "funk" than "shoegaze." The step filtering is pure random sample hold. No ultra-fine tuning required. Just tap in a beat, and Proteus does all the thinking for you.
