Electro-Harmonix Introduces Nano Q-Tron Envelope Filter Pedal

Electro-Harmonix Nano Q-Tron Pedal

Electro-Harmonix has introduced the Nano Q-Tron, which puts their funky envelope filter into a smaller housing. Made for use with everything from guitar to bass to keys and beyond, the pedal responds to your playing dynamics.

“The volume of the input signal it receives (also called the envelope) controls the cutoff or center frequency of a swept filter allowing the Nano Q-Tron to create tone-altering effects ranging from subtle to dynamic, auto-wah to ultra-funky,” EHX writes.

Other controls include a Volume knob, a Q control for the peak bandwidth, and a three-position mode knob. The modes (LP, BP, and HP) control the frequency range – low pass, bandpass, and high pass.

You can hear the Nano Q-Tron on bass at the 2:20 mark in this demo:

The Electro-Harmonix Nano Q-Tron is shipping now for $106.40.
