Expands your tonal possibilities with the first-ever Intelligent Ring Modulator.
The Pigtronix Mothership is an analog synthesizer featuring VCO, Sub-Octave, and the world's first Intelligent
Ring Modulator. Incredibly fast note recognition and enormous analog sound make this unique synthesizer ideal for use with
guitar, bass, horns, vocals or any other musical instrument. No special pickup or interface is required.
At the heart
of the Mothership effects pedal is a newly designed note detection circuit that achieves high-speed and accurate pitch to
voltage translation. The Mothership is a true analog mono-synth with a limitless array of tuning options between its voices.
This Pigtronix effects unit is capable of otherworldly tones that have never before been available in such a compact and easy-to-use
format as well as some new sounds that reach into bizarre and uncharted musical territory. Are you ready to go there?
The main voice of the Pigtronix Mothership effects pedal is a VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) that outputs either triangle
or square waves. The VCO can be tuned anywhere from 2 octaves above the input signal to 2 octaves below the input signal and
functions over the entire range of both 5-string bass and 6-string electric guitar. An adjustable portamento (glide)
effect can be added to produce subtle slides from note to note or outrageous multi-octave glissando maneuvers. An expression
pedal jack for whammy control provides tunable pitch bending up to one octave using a standard TRS 20K Expression pedal. That's
right: analog whammy.
The Pigtronix octave down is massive; it will shake your house. The Sub-Octave is always locked to the input signal, providing
a warm and solid fundamental for whatever harmony you create with the other voices. A dedicated SUB Out jacks allows low frequencies
from the Sub-Octave and Ring Modulator to be sent to a separate bass amp for maximum booty.
In designing the Mothership, Pigtronix has created something never before heard by mankind: the pitch tracking ring modulator.
Tune this ring modulator to the sound you desire and it will follow every note you play, retaining the exact harmonic intervals
between its output and the signal it is tracking. A "ring mod source," switch lets the ring modulator follow either the input
signal or the VCO signal, providing an immense array of analog textures and interactive harmony. The Mothership's glide and
whammy functions also apply to the intelligent ring modulator, letting the musician morph one harmony into another and then
