PRESS RELEASE - A faithful reissueof an extremely rare Electro-Harmonix synthesizer first introducedin 1980, the new Random Tone Generator pedal produces continuouslychanging tones over a four-plus octave range. Straight out of a'50s sci-fi movie, the pocket-sized pedal creates a range of tonesreminiscent of the beeps and bloops from a mad scientist's lab tothe spooky drones of a haunted dungeon.
The Random Tone Generator features a Rate Knob andGlide Switch. The Rate Knob controls the speed at which the tonesare generatedand the Glide Switch adds portamento or a glide in pitch betweenthem. The footswitch enables the musician to engage or mute theRTG's output and turns the LED on/off. A single ¼" jack providesoutput that is compatible with both instrument and line-levelinputs. Innovative moving "grooves" and shifting musical patternscan be created by using the RTG in conjunction with other effectssuch as distortion or modulation. By adding a delay to the RTG'ssignal chain, the user can also create syncopated rhythmictapestries of random sequences.
The new Random Tone Generator pedal, set for aMid-January release, is housed in a solid die-cast package and isequipped with a standard 9-volt battery.
