Electro-Harmonix has unveiled the Mod Rex polyrhythmic modulator pedal featuring four independent modulation sections synced in time. Each of the sections can be tweaked to create unique sounds.
“MOD delivers vibrato, flanger, chorus or phaser. TREM features tremolo. PAN modulates between left and right in stereo operation and FILTER offers a choice of a modulated LPF, HPF or BPF,” EHX explains. “Each section provides four LFO shape options plus dedicated functions to maximize the Mod Rex’s expressivity and control.”
It also has a Tempo section with nine-note length choices that are selectable for each modulation section. The tempo can be adjusted via the Tempo knob, Tap Tempo footswitch, or by an external expression pedal. The Mod Rex can also be synced to an external device with MIDI. Other features include stereo I/O, MIDI control of all parameters and presets, and an external foot controller input for banking through presets.
Although the demo is on guitar, you can get an idea of the pedal’s scope with this video:
