Malekko Heavy Industry Introduces The Scrutator

Malekko Heavy Industry Scrutator PedalMalekko Heavy Industry has unveiled the Scrutator, a sample rate and bit reduction pedal built around the company’s new DSP platform. It offers external control over any combination of Rate, Bit, Filter, and Q controls via expression pedal or control voltage as well as a switchable 2-pole bandpass or lowpass filter.

The pedal begins with a Preamp control for controlling input gain/attenuation. From there, the signal can be distorted in several ways. The Bit Rate control can reduce the signal from approximately 16 bit to 2 bit, while the Sample Rate can be reduced from 48kHz to 300Hz. Its Q control adjusts the filter bandwidth and amplitude amount.

The Malekko Scrutator is available now for $189.00.
