Providence Introduces PEC-4V Programmable Effects Controller

Providence has expanded their line of utility pedals with the PEC-4V. The programmable effects controller features their Vitalizer circuit with four Provolt9 DC9V outputs.

The effects loops break down into three series loops and one separate that can be set up in four combinations to be recalled instantly in program mode. A direct mode allows for directly turning each loop on or off.

“The Vitalizer circuit fed by this input ‘fortifies’ the relatively weak guitar or bass signal without changing the signal level so that it is less susceptible to degradation,” the company explains. “Each of [DC9V] output connectors can supply up to 100mA (a total of 400mA for all 4 outputs) of regulated DC 9V power. If any of the Provolt9 DC outputs are accidentally shorted, its Short Protection & Auto Recovery feature protects the internal circuitry from damage while keeping all other outputs active. When the cause of the short is removed the affected output will recover automatically and normal DC supply will resume. Double Filtering on each of the Provolt9 outputs ensures exceptionally clean power supply. Clean power is essential for high-resolution, refined sound.”

The Providence PEC-4V will be available soon with a street price of $449.
