French effects hackers EvenMidi has announced the Pitchy MIDI controller, which is designed to offer comprehensive control of the DigiTech Whammy and Eventide H9/PitchFactor.
Using MIDI, the Pitchy can recall all Whammy presets, provide external expression control and recreate the DigiTech Ricochet’s momentary effect using its footswitch.
Most enticingly, it also provides a sequencer with tap tempo and up to 24 presets, using 1/8th, triplet and 1/16th notes.
Kudos to the EvenMidi gang for the demo video, too, where they use the pedal to perform a host of classic Whammy moments from Muse, Joe Satriani and Rage Against The Machine.
The Pitchy is available now for $142/€119. For more info, head over to EvenMidi.
