Keeley Electronics Introduces 30ms Automatic Double Tracker

Keeley 30ms Automatic Double Tracker PedalKeeley Electronics has introduced the 30ms Automatic Double Tracker. The stereo effect pedal works with bass, guitar, keyboard and vocals and offers an array of studio style doubling effects for creating thick textures. The company cites the early days of recording techniques as an influence behind the design.

“Since the early days of automatic double tracking pioneered by Ken Townsend and John Lennon at Abbey Road Studios, this technique has become the de facto way of creating recordings that sound bigger and fuller by making it sound like two guitars, or singers, or instrumentalists are playing at same time,” says Robert Keeley. “The Keeley 30ms Automatic Double Tracker offers musicians the ability to take these techniques with them out on the road with a wide range of tools needed for crafting unique double tracking schemes.”

The pedal can be used in mono or stereo modes and includes altered and effects similar to a chorus pedal without an LFO in Dimension Mode. Dimension Mode allows for creating up to two different voices for a stereo double tracked field. “Abbey Mode” offers a a more conventional chorus by simulating synched tape decks running in parallel. Finally, Slapback Mode gives players more Rockabilly sounds.

The Keeley 30ms Automatic Double Tracker is available for order for $199.
