One of these years, I need to make it down to NAMM, I think it would be super fun. This year’s summer NAMM featured a new pedal that will be coming out in the Fall of 2010 called the Keymaster by Pigtronix. In a nutshell, it’s a dual true bypass effects loop in a pedal. It’s pretty cool with the ability to handle multiple inputs (XLRs, balanced, unbalanced, etc). Where I think it really stands out is the ability to run the effects in series or parallel. In parallel, they’re running at the same time, but you can fade into each other or blend. Pretty cool.
Here is a video that Blake from What’s The Dude Play posted featuring Dave Koltai introducing the Keymaster. “It’s the Keymaster.. it get’s anything done”. Billy Mays would be proud. You can read Blake’s post here.
