PRESS RELEASE - EHX's new 8 StepProgram connects to the expression pedal or Control-Voltage inputon another device delivering sequencer control over parameters thatrespond to expression pedals or CV generators such as oscillators,filters, delay parameters, etc. With eight independent sliders,each controlling a sequence step, the pedal can turn an auto-wahinto a step filter, a tremolo into a varying rhythmic pulse effector a pitch-shifter into an arpeggiator.
Sequences can be modified with the pedal'smulti-function Mode switch that delivers control over sequencelength, direction, depth and glide rate. There are four directionmodes available: forward, reverse, bounce and random.
Sequence rate can be set with the Rate slider, TapTempo footswitch, or via MIDI clock which permits syncing to anexternal device like a drum machine. Five Tap Tempo Divide modesadd rhythmic diversity. An expression pedal/CV input enablesexternal, real-time control of rate, depth, glide, and sequencelength.
The main unit can save, store and recall 10 userpresets. The optional 8 Step Program Foot Controller, whichreceives its power from the 8 Step Program via a standard guitarcable, expands presets to 100.
