Electro-Harmonix Mainframe Bit Crusher Effects Pedal

Electro-Harmonix introduces the Mainframe sample rate reducer and bit crusher which enables the user to create “old-school” digital audio sounds and fine tune their digital artifacts.

Buzz. Beep and bloop. We’re high on the lo-fi sounds of “old-school” games, toys and terminals and the Mainframe Bit Crusher takes us back in time to when Pac Man and Donkey Kong ruled the arcades, to when the Commodore 64 was high tech.

The Mainframe’s selectable High/Low/Band-Pass filter lets the user shape the artifacts of the bit crushing and sample rate. Another very cool feature is its Sample Rate Tuning Mode where the pedal analyzes your input signal in real-time and sets the sample rate to match the pitch of your signal, or a set interval above your signal. This allows you to set the sample rate to match the key of a song, or it will continually adjust the sample rate based on what you play!

– Sample Rate Reduction ranging from 48kHz to 110Hz
– Bit Depth Reduction ranging from 24-bit to 1-bit
– Selectable High/Low/Band-Pass filter to shape the artifacts of the bit crushing and sample rate reduction
– Sample Rate Tuning Mode allows you to set the sample rate to match the key of a song, or continually adjust the sample rate based on what you play on your instrument
– Programmable preset or expression pedal setting allows you to save your sound or control any combination of the Mainframe’s knobs with an external expression pedal
– Secondary knob parameters allow you to fine-tune the Mainframe’s effect.
– High quality buffered bypass and silent switching
