TC Electronic introduces two exciting new guitar effects pedals ahead of Winter NAMM 2019; a pressure-sensitive dual pitch shifter and a chorus modelled on the Juno-60 synth.

TC Electronic Brainwaves Pitch Shifter

TC Electronic has just announced the Brainwaves Pitch Shifter: an "exceptional pitch shifter with studio-grade algorithms." TC Electronic.

The standout feature of this compact pedal is the pressure-sensitive MASH footswitch which creates the ability to bend pitch-shifted notes, bringing a huge range of sonic possibilities to your performance.

TC Electronic Brainwaves Pitch Shifter

At its core, the Brainwaves is a pitch shifter with two independent voices and a pitch range from unison to +/- 2 octaves. A wealth of studio-grade algorithms are built in, including polyphonic pitch shifting, whammy-style octave up sounds, and a detune mode.

The MASH expression footswitch is assignable to any pedal parameter and it can be customised via the TonePrint Editor for computers and smart devices. This functionality allows you to create your own unique pitch effects or load in artist-made presets from the online library.

Despite the powerful capabilities of the Brainwaves pedal, the footprint is no larger than most standard guitar effects pedals and the intuitive controls are designed to let you focus on your playing.

The pedal offers both true bypass and buffered bypass modes, letting you tailor its use for your own rig. The gives you the best of both guitar pedal designs, whether you need a buffered protection against high-end frequency loss or a true bypass with optimal clarity.

TC Electronic June-60 Synthesizer Chorus

Having already made an appearance at the 2017 Guitcon, and at Superbooth 2018, this pedal may not be a surprising launch for all readers, but it's finally here to debut at NAMM 2019!

The new TC Electronic June-60 is a faithful recreation of the chorus circuitry from the legendary Roland Juno-60 synthesizer. This pedal's classic chorus tones are reflected by its vintage-inspired design, and with its cool dual-button layout and wood-effect panels, passing onlookers would be forgiven for thinking you'd just added a synth module to your pedalboard.

TC Electronic June-60 Synthesizer Chorus

The June-60 features a 2-button interface which gives an intuitive and fast change of modulation tone. The all-analog BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) circuitry is designed to offer the most authentic recreation of the original Juno-60's chorus circuit.

The June-60 is designed to replicate the thick chorus effect heard (and often imitated) from Roland's early-'80s synthesizers.

Both mono and stereo operation opens up the June-60 for use on other line-level instruments/multiple amp setups, while the "built-like-a-tank" metal chassis guarantees rugged durability on the gigging scene.

The June-60 features True Bypass to maintain the clarity of your signal, and it can be powered by a 9V battery or a PSU-SB DC power supply (not included).
