They say that tone is in the fingers – The MOD Series transforms the musician’s performance into an integral part of the sound effect. Players’ touch, dynamics, and note choices become the primary architects of sound, creating tones and textures that evolve in real-time with their performance. This integration of sound design and musical expression invites musicians on a journey of endless exploration and discovery.

The GAMECHANGER AUDIO kicks off the new series introducing the first three pedals – MOD Delay, MOD Reverb, and MOD Chorus.

Unique to the MOD Series, each pedal features dynamics and pitch following engines that are controlled directly by the musician’s performance. 

The DYNAMICS function captures the nuances of playing volume, reflecting the character of picking style and instrument decay. 

The PITCH tracker responds to note selection, bends, and vibratos. 

Standard 3,5 mm TS patch cables (included) give players the power to direct these modulations to any of the four effect knobs, dynamically altering effects.

MOD reverb features:

  • 3 algorithms: PLATE, SPRING and HALL
  • 4 streamlined controls: LEVEL, DECAY, TONE, DRIVE
  • 3 stereo spread settings: 0%, 50%, 100%

MOD Delay features:

  • 3 algorithms: TAPE, ANALOG and DIGITAL
  • 4 streamlined controls: LEVEL, TIME, FEEDBACK, TONE
  • 3 PING PONG panning settings: 0%, 50%, 100%

The MOD Series offers an alternative to conventional effect changes typically achieved through presets, expression pedals, and MIDI controls. This series emphasizes the artist’s skill, allowing for the orchestration of effects through instrument play.
