t was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Back in the go-go ‘90s, a band of mad scientists emerged from a lab in the wilds of Iowa with a strange pedal that altered the very fabric of time and space. This pedal found its way into the hearts and minds of a select few - the dreamers and the music makers, the wild and free.
But those pedals weren’t made to last. As the years have passed, their fragile circuitry has begun to fail, until one day they will be only a memory. Wise grandfathers will tell the children tales of the strange black pedal from the west, and that will be the end of the story.
Or will it?
Alexander Pedals designer Matthew Farrow decided to recreate the magic using modern DSP technology and high-quality construction techniques. All the strange sounds of the original lurk within the Super Neo-Matic, along with some fun new surprises. The original pedals may be slowly fading, but your journey has just begun.
The Super Neo-Matic has two modulation types (Triangle and Random) as well as two sound modes (Vintage and Modern.)
In Triangle mode, the time delay is controlled by a wide-ranging triangle wave oscillator for traditional chorus, vibrato, and flanging textures.
Random mode controls the time delay matrix using a randomly-changing voltage, so that the signal shifts between various tones unpredictably. It’s the cure for the common chorus.
Both modulation types are available in two sound variations: Vintage uses the same 8-bit sampling as the original, while Modern runs a full 24-bit audio path. The difference in bit rate is more apparent when playing quietly. All sound modes also allow “parking” the modulation and using the pedal as an audio delay. Sweep the delay with an expression pedal or the Ramp footswitch for dramatic time warps!
Once you’ve dialed in your favorite sound settings, you can save them to one of the Super Neo-Matic’s four preset slots. Connect the pedal to a MIDI controller or your computer for access to the full complement of sixteen presets!
