The Gamechanger Audio PLUS Pedal is a piano-style sustain pedal for electric guitars and all other melodic instruments. It uses audio sampling to generate long sustain while retaining the natural tone of your instrument. The PLUS pedal functions as an intelligent looper pedal, designed to take the concept of granular sampling to a new level. This is more than just a stompbox—it’s a vast extension of your instrument that bridges the gap between rhythm and lead playing and lets players explore new territories.

How does the PLUS Pedal work?
The PLUS Pedal does not generate sounds with oscillators and filters. Instead, think of it as a sort of "smart looper" that only catches the second half of each note or chord you play, and samples that short snippet of sound into a seamless, continuous loop.

This technology, called "Real Time Audio Sampling," ensures that each sustained note or chord will retain the exact character of your instrument and playing style. This method is also fully responsive to any playing style. Create continuous layers of sustain, incorporating vibrato, bends, harmonics, trills and other dynamic playing techniques. You can use the whammy bar, play with a slide or experiment with amp feedback or noises—the PLUS Pedal will capture all these tonal nuances and turn them into a continuous sound.

What is the PLUS Pedal for?
The PLUS Pedal is an extension of your instrument, allowing you to create multiple layers on-the-go. From jazz voice leading to heavy post-rock drones—the Plus Pedal allows guitarists to do more with their instrument. It's a useful tool in any context, from live performances, songwriting and arrangement, to creating drones, ambient soundscapes, cinematic sound effects and more. It's also a great tool for aural training and practicing improvisation. Instead of thinking about which scale shape fits over what changes, the PLUS Pedal focuses all your attention on listening to the tonal relationships between the chord and the notes you play on top.

What’s different about the Gamechanger Audio PLUS Pedal?
The PLUS Pedal is not a looper, nor a delay or a reverb pedal; it’s a whole new type of effect based on real-time sampling and looping. Unlike synth-based units, the Gamechanger Audio PLUS does not produce a digital-sounding tone. The PLUS Pedal's Wet signal is built from short samples of your instrument's output, preserving the character of each note you play.

The Gamechanger Audio PLUS Pedal is not just for guitars—it can be used with any melodic instrument, including saxophones, horns, trombones, violins, cellos and more. Use a standard microphone to produce amazing polyphony in real time and create multiple voices. The PLUS Pedal features two outputs and a separate FX Loop, which lets you create interesting pedal combinations.
