The mad scientists at DigiTech have unleashed the Dirty Robot, a stereo mini-synth effect for bass and guitar. The pedal features seven controls and two synth voices: straight envelope-style synthesis (V1) or vocal formant synthesis (V2).
“We designed the Dirty Robot to provide guitarists or bassists with a slew of synth effects in a small footprint,” DigiTech’s Tom Cram says. “The Dirty Robot is a worthy successor to the Synth Wah, but it also has some great new features that players will dig. In addition to the obvious glut of concentric controls we are also introducing our new Drift Knob that allows you to blend Square Wave with Sub and Octave sounds for even more variety.”
It also has built-in vibrato and chorus effects for extra versatility plus Mix/Mod controls for blending in your clean signal. The Dirty Robot includes stereo inputs and outputs with true bypass circuitry. It will be shipping this month with a street price around $149.99.
