Electro-Harmonix is coming out with another pedal from their Next Step Effects called the Electro-Harmonix Talking Pedal. It’s a vowel wah with a fuzz circuit to enhance the definition of the effect and adds a little growl and grind to the pedal. In a nut shell it brings in the Talking Machine Effect into their new wah technology with a splash of fuzz.
The Next Step Effects has no moving parts – no pots or rack and pinion design to manipulate the wah. It uses some type of accelerometer to determine position and movement (I’m only speculating). Cables plug into the unit and before you begin, you will need to calibrate the pedal (simple procedure). You will not be able to velcro the pedal to a board, since the motion of the pedal is the control itself.
Here is the video of the Electro-Harmonix Talking Pedal by EHX:
This is currently NOT available. I’m not sure of the release date. I would assume very soon.
