Electro Harmonix Ravish Sitar

via musictoyznetwork:

Electro Harmonix Ravish Sitar Very few instruments offer as much harmonic and dynamic flexibility as a sitar. Electro-Harmonix has streamlined the essence of the sitar into a compact enclosure that offers a polyphonic lead voice and tunable sympathetic string drones that dynamically react to your playing. Create your own custom scales for the sympathetic strings while you set the decay time for the lead voice. Two expression pedal inputs allow you to bend the pitch of the lead voice and control the volume of the sympathetic strings simultaneously. These unique controls offer the player the ability to program the Ravish to become a totally unique and organic instrument unto itself. The Ravish is a truly new design with the flexibility to be a crossover tonal wonder.

Alex Skolnick tries out the Peavey AmpKit Link HD guitar interface at the 2012 NAMM Show.

He plugged a looper between his guitar and AmpKit, and went to work instantly. He starts with a clean jazz sound – but wait a minute and he gets the epic shred on.

Features:

  • The only charging guitar interface: optional AC adapter charges your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch while you play.
  • Stays connected: uses cable with dual locking connectors, rather than relying on friction fit – it just can’t fall out.
  • Input and Output: LiNK HD is not only guitar in, but also headphone and line out.
  • Control at your fingertips: control knobs for guitar input level and headphone output level. No need to launch an app.
  • Mac and PC: LiNK HD works as a guitar interface for your Mac and PC, too. USB cable included.
  • Built solid: sturdy jacks and cable connectors. Rubberized, non-slip coating feels great and reduces sliding.

AmpKit LiNK HD is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2012.

DigiTech Intros iStomp Programmable Effects Pedal

iStompAt the 2012 NAMM Show, DigiTech announced the iStomp pedal, a guitar stompboxe that lets you program the effect pedal with any sound you want – and change it at any time.

The iStomp connects to an iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad, enabling musicians to load the effect of their choice into the iStomp.

The iStomp pedal connects to an Apple iOS device using the DigiTech Smart Cable that comes with the iStomp. Once connected, the DigiTech StompShop provides two of the most popular requested effects, the DigiTech Total Recall Delay and the DigiTech Redline Overdrive with the initial purchase.

The app also offers access to additional effects that iStomp owners can browse, try out, and purchase for their stompbox. The iStomp pedal has four knobs to control effects parameters, which change their function according to which effect is loaded.

iStomp makes trying out new sounds easier, too. Instead of having to go to a music store or look for online demos that might have been done with unfamiliar gear, a guitarist can try any pedal in the iStomp online store for free for up to 10 minutes – in their own home, using their own guitar and amp. Approximately 24 pedals will be offered initially, and the selection will expand to include exclusive pedals from DigiTech, officially licensed pedals from other manufacturers and classic legacy DigiTech and DOD products.

Multiple iStomp pedals can be authorized to the same iTunes account, allowing customers to purchase an effect once from the in-app store, and then load it into any iStomp pedal registered to them. All purchases are saved within the app, making it easy to build up a wide ranging effects collection.

The DigiTech iStomp will begin shipping in January 2012 at $229.95 suggested retail. The iStomp pedal comes with an iOS authorization cable, power supply and the two initial downloads. Additional downloads are available starting at $4.99 each.

Two Free Ways To Get More Out Of The Roland GR-55 Guitar Synth

The Roland GR-55 Guitar Synth is a deep pedal. So deep, that it can be fiddly to try and edit, using just the on-board controls.

Fortunately, there are a couple of free solutions that should make working with the Roland GR-55 Guitar Synth a lot easier.

First up, there’s an iPad template for TouchOSC (shown above), created by Marc Benigni:

Many sliders have been replaced with banks of buttons, which I have found to be much more usable.  (They light up when you touch them – neato! – but they don’t persist to represent current state.)  I’ve taken the opportunity to replace a lot of “lawsuit-aware” labels with real descriptions, for instance LIPS becomes Dano 56-U3 and so on.  This is a little more “fun” for me as a guitar geek, and moreover, it’s called out a lot of functionality that I didn’t even know was there.  Embarrassingly, I didn’t realize that MA-28 etc were acoustic guitars; I thought they were mics or pickups I’d never heard of!  So it’s been good to embed some of the documentation right into the UI.

There are pro’s and cons, though.  I’m using a lot more screen space, which itself is both a pro and a con.  And I’m using a lot more memory with this increased control count.  This makes pages load a little slower, and could even result in more TouchOSC crashes.  Oddly, I noticed that labels have OSC command strings, but they don’t actually respond to touch.  So every button is a label imposed over a push button, doubling the control count.

Details are available in the VGuitar forums.
