Gamechanger Audio launch PLASMA ROBOT - the world’s first online testing platform for guitar pedals!

Audio effects innovators and creators of PLUS Pedal, Gamechanger Audio have made the world's first online platform where anyone can take a guitar pedal for a test-drive. This is an actual PLASMA Pedal prototype set up in an isolated room playing tracks uploaded by users 24/7.  

Online platform "PLASMA Robot" is a part of their Indiegogo campaign and it allows anyone to upload a sound sample, dial in their desired settings using a set of remote controlled electric motors, and hear and see their track being turned into high voltage distortion via Youtube Livestream. The PLASMA Pedal campaign started March 10th when it reached the fixed goal in less than four minutes and raised over $100 000 in the first day.

"This is one of the most fun guitar pedals I've ever played" - Andy Martin (Reverb.com / ex ProGuitarshop.com)

"Yet again you have managed to come up with the talk of the show! It's the coolest freakin' pedal we've ever seen." - Lee Anderton (Anderton's TV)

"There are things that can be done with this pedal that I've not seen anybody else doing." Darryl Jones / Rolling Stones

"We know how hard decision making can be, especially if it's gear you're buying. It is our belief that the best description of PLASMA Pedal is actually getting to play the pedal. We think that PLASMA Robot gives you a pretty close impression of what the pedal sounds like in real life and also it's just lots of fun!" explains Ilya Krumins, CGO of Gamechanger Audio.

PLASMA Pedal was first unveiled in January at this year’s Winter NAMM show where it took the press by storm and received wide critical acclaim from the industry’s leading gear experts and countless professional musicians.

The pre-order campaign is now live on Indiegogo: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plasma-pedal-high-voltage-distortion-unit-guitar-rock#/

By creating PLASMA Pedal, Gamechanger Audio are marking a new chapter in the evolution of overdrive, distortion and fuzz effects.
Instead of using traditional LED circuits, transistors or vacuum tubes to produce overdrive, the PLASMA Pedal transforms your instrument’s live signal into a series of continuous high-voltage discharges within a xenon-filled tube. In essence – you are playing a bolt of electricity, and the electrical discharges produced by your instrument are instantly converted back into an analog audio signal, producing a quick, responsive, and extremely heavy distortion.

The first PLASMA Pedal batches are scheduled to ship in August 2018. This will be the second crowdfunding campaign created by Gamechanger Audio, following the success of PLUS Pedal which went up for pre-orders in January 2017 and was shipped to early backers within 7 months.

Gamechanger Audio have already received critical and public acclaim with their debut product PLUS Pedal – a piano-style sustain pedal already used by musicians such as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jon Carin and Jonathan Wilson (Roger Waters band), Josh Klinghoffer (RHCP), and many more.
