Iron Ether Introduces the Subterrograph Pedal

Iron Ether Subterrograph Pedal

Iron Ether Electronics has unveiled the Subterrograph, which combines their Subterranea multi-octave oscillator with their Xerograph Deluxe 4-pole resonant lowpass filter. The result is a full monophonic subtractive synthesizer for bass or guitar.

“Subterrograph has all the sounds and features of the two individual pedals, which were designed specifically to be paired with each other, together in a convenient package,” they explain. “Each side has its own separate true bypass switching and input and output jacks, allowing you to place other pedals between them, and use either pedal on its own.”

The Subterranea tracks your notes and generates three synth-style voices – a low octave with variable harmonics, a unison-pitched synth voice, and an octave-down synth – with selectable waveforms. The Xerograph Deluxe section gives you envelop capabilities and expression control.

“In addition to the dubby static lowpass sounds and foot-swept resonant filter sweeps of the original Xerograph, the Xerograph Deluxe can create envelope filter sounds from classic auto-wah to modern subtractive synthesis, downward envelopes, and triggered slow synth sweeps,” the Iron Ether website states.

Iron Ether houses the Subterrograph in an aluminum casing with machine-engraved graphics, hand-painted in black and orange. The pedal is available for order now at $795.
