A PRECISION TUNER FOR S-GEAR
A tuner! - probably the single most requested feature since we first released S-GEAR. Developing a good tuner is not an easy task and there are several less-than-good tuner products to be found. We knew that adding a Tuner would not be a trivial development and would take some time to get right. To develop the S-GEAR tuner we teamed-up with pitch detection specialists Sonuus UK. Sonuus provided pitch detection technology, the same used in their highly regarded Audio-to-MIDI and tuner products. The result is a responsive and accurate tuner which most importantly is easy to use.
- Ultra fast and accurate pitch detection technology
- Tuning accuracy to within 1/2 cent, right down to the low bass guitar strings
- Highly visible analogue style metering with smooth, responsive ballistics
- Big note indicator
NEW CABINET OPTIONS
S-GEAR v2.5 adds a boutique 2x12" rear ported cabinet. For these measurements we acquired a superb Dumble style ported back 2x12" cabinet and measured it with both Alnico Gold and G12-65 speakers (as preferred by Robben Ford and John Mayer).
DELAY PAN CONTROL
A new DelayThing Pan control allows you to position mono mode delays in the stereo field. The feature is useful for creating uncluttered stereo mixes, or using two DelayThing units with different length panned mono delays.
