Electro Harmonix Micro Synthesizer

   (0 reviews)

From the classic vintage sounds of the great early Moog synthesizer to custom creations, the Microsynth creates fat analog synth sounds heard on classic recordings by some of the finest musicians in the world. Compact ten-slider layout lets the sonically adventurous guitarist dial in a virtually limitless array of analog synthesizer sounds: from percussive stabs to backwards-sounding bowed effects.

The Electro-Harmonix XO Micro Synthesizer for guitar is a very powerful tool for musical expression. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the Micro Synth’s controls to learn how to get the best out of this special instrument. The Micro Synth can create some of the most popular synthesizer textures at a fraction of the cost for such capabilities. Its four voices: GUITAR, OCTAVE, SUB OCTAVE AND SQUARE WAVE are completely independent and fully mixable. The MICRO SYNTH can modify these signals with envelope control for a variety of “bowed” or “blown” sounds. In addition, a sophisticated swept filter control allows highly variable frequency adjustments to be applied to the overall output signal. When combined, these controls offer the user a creative capability that is virtually limitless.

Note: There have been various versions of the Electro Harmonix Micro Synthesizer since it's initial release with different but similar front panels but they all retain the same characteristics and controls. There is some debate on which one has the fastest square wave but its generally agreed that the sound is over all the same.
