This is a preview of Frontier Design Group’s iShred Live, which features a new low pass filter with variable cutoff and resonant frequency control.
The real fun comes in for those of you running iOS 5 on a camera equipped device. Face control!
That’s right, you can control this effect with your face! It uses the new built-in iOS 5 face tracking to watch where your face is and track the cutoff and resonant frequencies when you move it.
Maybe not the most practical way to control it – but at least they’re trying something new!
Multi Eventide stompbox demo jam freakout!
The results of an improvised mess-about tweaking all our in-house Eventide Stompboxes, sometimes all at once. The chain is Suhr Guitar into Eventide ModFactor fed into TimeFactor, then into Pitchfactor, then into a Jet City 50 Watt 2 x 12 Combo amp. Guitar is provided by Source’s resident shredder Ian Iredale, knob twiddling by Alex. You can hopefully get an idea for the sheer range of ideas, sounds and general all round genius these particular pedals provide.
Eventide stompboxes are as much studio effects as they are guitar effects (all are stereo, with selectable Line/Guitar input/output volumes), all sound completely fabulous and are easy to use, but still super super deep.
Mic setup is Shure SM57 on the cone going into a UA 610, RØDE NTG1000 on the rear of the cab, RØDE NTG2 to pick up our voices, all fed into a PreSonus FireStudio Mobile for conversion.

VOX has introduced the first pedal in an ongoing collaboration with guitar icon Joe Satriani.
Drawing on Joe Satriani’s knowledge, accumulated from decades of groundbreaking performances, VOX unveils The Satchurator distortion pedal. Designed to Satriani’s exact specifications. The Satchurator produces Satriani’s signature tone and adds new features and improvements never before combined in a distortion pedal.
The Satchurator is capable of very high gain levels, but operates more quietly and musically than other modern distortion pedals. It also preserves the tone and pick-attack of the guitarist plugging into it, regardless of style, from subtly distorted blues tones through classic rock and shred. The result is a professional-quality pedal that recaptures sought-after vintage and modern sounds in a powerful, versatile and extremely musical pedal design.
“The Satchurator is the most musical, most dynamic, multi-function distortion pedal I’ve ever played through,” says Satriani. “This little red box is a monster tone generator. Following my specifications without compromise, and adding design innovations I never thought possible, the VOX team has delivered exactly what I need for the stage as well as the studio”
MXR ZW-44 Zakk Wylde Overdrive Pedal demo
The MXR ZW-44 Wylde Overdrive Pedal performs like Zakk. Whether on his groundbreaking work with Ozzy Osbourne or with his own Black Label Society, Zakk Wylde’s guitar playing is loud, tough, and relentless. Zakk’s take-no-prisoners attitude extends to his quest for tone, too. His signature ZW-44 overdrive pedal will turn your clean amp into a heavy, chunky, crunch machine. Or, use it like Zakk does and kick it in front of a dirty amp for a screaming, sustaining lead tone. 3 simple controls output, tone, and drive make getting up and running easy, so you can concentrate on your chops.
