Red Witch Pedals has updated the all-analogue Synthotron guitar synthesiser promising a better, faster, stronger effects pedal (opens in new tab), which really translates as faster tracking, more range, and more stable performance.
The Synthotron II has dual analogue synth oscillators, each with level, decay and octave switching – up to two octaves or down one. There is amplitude modulation, an envelope filter and a sample hold section, too.
The pedal has two footswitches, one each for the synth and envelope sides of the effect, which can be run independently of each other, and, overall, it looks like the Synthotron II should be both straightforward to dial in madness, and also capable of such extreme sonic madness that it will test the imagination as to how you use it in your compositions.
The Synthotron II is true-bypass, takes 9VDC and is available now for $199.99 (£165, €180 approx).
See Red Witch (opens in new tab) for more details (and to order this crazy beast).
