Electro-Harmonix Introduces Pico Platform

Electro-Harmonix introduced the Pico Platform. It is a studio-style compression / limiter in a super small pico package! The Pico Platform is priced at $119.00 (USA Street Price).

The EHX Pico Platform Compressor / Limiter is a powerful and versatile studio-style compressor enclosed in a pico-sized package. Borrowing from the original, the Pico Platform condenses the comp section of the full-sized Stereo Platform for those looking to fit smooth studio compression onto any pedalboard. Packed with 2 modes and Hard/Sort Knee compression options, it is a perfect fit for sculpting your dynamics with professional precision.

Use the Pico Platform compressor / limiter on any instrument for precise and powerful control of your signal’s volume and of course, extended sustain on leads. Add subtle dynamic control to level out peaks and valleys in your signal or give your sound a real squeeze for extra sustain and pop. The Pico Platform is extremely transparent with no tonal coloring, making it extremely versatile and easy to work into your existing set up.

The Pico Platform’s control set is simple yet comprehensive. Use the Sustain control to adjust the compressor ratio or limiter threshold for a subtle or extreme effect. The addition of a Blend knob allows for adding seamless sustain while preserving attack and tone. Adjust the Attack control to set when the compressor activates after a transient. Use the Mode button to choose between the Compressor and Limiter modes and Soft Knee or Hard Knee compression curves for smoother or more dramatic styles.

Electro-Harmonic Introduces Pico POG

Electro-Harmonic introduces the Pico POG, EHX’s smallest and most powerful compact Polyphonic Octave Generate yet, The Pico POG takes the streamlined simplicity of the Micro and Nano POGs and fits it all into an ultra-compact chassis and adds a powerful tone control. The tightest octave effect now fits on the tightest of pedalboards.

The EHX Pico POG features a lightning fast feel that will track every not and chord you play with precision. Dial in Sub Octave to add stumble rumble or monstrous thunder. Add Active Up for ethereal air or make it out to shred into another galaxy. Perfectly blend 3-voice tones for fat synths madness. The 3 mode Tone control lets you tailor your sound to fit into any pocket no matter how massive or small.

Controls on the Pico POG include dedicated volumes knobs for the SUB OCTAVE, OCTIVE UP, and DRY voices. These three controls act as a mixer for infinite possible voice mixes. The TONE knob features three modes controlled by the FILTER button.

In Tone Mode, the knob acts as a tilt-EQ with a flat frequency response in the center, more treble and less bass as you turn the knob counterclockwise. In this mode, EQ is applies to all 3 voices. In Low Pass Filter mode, the knob cuts highs in the Sub and Octave Up voices, while High Pass Filter mode cuts lows in the Sub and Octave Up Voices.

Features include:

  • Lightning-fast tracking with perfectly precise octane tones
  • 3 volume knobs control level of SUB OCTAVE, OCTAVE UP, and DRY tones
  • TONE knob applied tilt-EQ to all output
  • Low Pass Mode applies a resonant low pass filter, which allows low frequencies to pass while cutting higher frequencies of the Sub and Octave Up voices
  • High Pass Mode applies a high pass filter, which allows high frequencies to pass while cutting lower frequencies of the Sub and Octave Up voices
  • Power adapter included

The Pico POG Polyphonic Octave Generator is priced at $240.00 (USA Street Price)

Electro-Harmonix Introduced Nano Metal Muff Distortion Pedal

Its VOL control sets the pedal’s output level while its DIST knob adjusts the Nano Metal Muff’s input gain and distortion. A newly designed noise gate removes unwanted hum when you stop playing. It utilizes an adjustable noise floor threshold and includes a dedicated LED which indicates when the output signal is muted.

Electro-Harmonix Launches the Pitch Fork +

Electro-Harmonix has announced that the new and much anticipated Pitch Fork + is rolling off the assembly line and shipping to music retailers worldwide.

  • A User footswitch that’s programmable and can be assigned to a variety of functions such as muting either Shift voice or jumping to a preset program. It features a dedicated LED.
  • An EXP input for EXP or CV control over a broad selection of parameters in three sub-menus: Frequency, Glissando and Volume.
