Overview

The Pitch Fork transposes an instrument's pitch over a +/- three-octave range and features three modes which allow the pitch to be transposed up, down or both, simultaneously. The pitch shift amount can be set to a fixed interval or continuously varied by an expression pedal or control voltage.

The controls are straightforward and intuitive. An 11-position Shift switch selects the maximum transposition interval ranging from D (Detune), a shift of 17 cents, through Minor 2nd, Major 2nd, Major 3rd, Perfect 4th, Perfect 5th, Major 6th, Minor 7th, 1 Octave, 2 Octaves and 3 Octaves. A three-position toggle switch controls whether the pitch is transposed up, down or both. In Dual mode, two pitch-shifted signals are output. One follows the shift knob as if in the Up position while the other creates a harmony. Dual Mode settings include M3 up + P5 up, P5 up + 1 Oct down, 1 Oct up + 1 Oct down and many others. A Blend knob controls the mix of the dry signal and the effected signal, and an EXP jack enables the player to control pitch and glissando with an expression pedal.

The Latch button selects Latch or Momentary mode which affects how the footswitch and EXP input behave. In Latch mode, the footswitch toggles between effect on and buffered bypass each time it's pressed and the EXP input continuously varies pitch. In Momentary mode the effect is only on while the footswitch is depressed and when it is released the Pitch Fork goes into bypass.

In Latch mode the EXP input controls pitch shift amount, ranging from unity to the interval set by the Shift knob, and pitch varies continuously throughout the expression pedal's range. In Momentary mode the EXP input controls glissando rate for the Pitch Fork's footswitch. When the bypass footswitch is pressed, the Pitch Fork jumps from bypass to the interval set by the Shift knob. The amount of time it takes to reach that new note is the glissando rate. When the footswitch is released the pitch will return to unity at the same rate. That glissando time can vary between four milliseconds to two seconds depending on the heel/toe position of the expression pedal. The default glissando rate is 60 milliseconds when nothing is plugged into the EXP input.

The Pitch Fork comes equipped with an EHX 9.6DC-200mA power supply and also runs on a 9-volt battery.

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Pitch Fork Polyphonic Pitch Shifting Guitar Effects Pedal:

      It works best if you put it at the beginning the effects chain. I love it because you can also plug and expression pedal and make it a whammy effect. The sound quality is very good.

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Pitch Fork Polyphonic Pitch Shifting Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Not a staple if you are just starting your rig but can be used for pretty much any playing style/tone. Had it for a couple of months and still turn all the knobs all the time just to see what happens Clean, dirty, or heavy it's always fun to play with.

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Pitch Fork Polyphonic Pitch Shifting Guitar Effects Pedal:

        The sounds you can make with the Pick Fork is uncanny and not possible in the real world. Well made, easy to use once you play around with the "Blend" knob to get the hang of it. I have it as the first device on my pedal board (after trial and error) and I will get lots of use. EHX makes awesome pedals, get it, it can do things you would not believe.

            You can spend a lot of time messing around with this pedal in the bedroom; so so many variables. Not sure how practical it is, but I use it to cover for the keyboards we don't have, on a couple of songs like the beginning of Stealin' and With or Without You. Doesn't get used a lot, but it sure is a fun little box. Kind of pricey for the amount of work it gets during a gig.

            The pedal is a little noisy but that may just be my setup at the moment. It's a great pedal though and I would recommend it.
