Description

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 4 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 9Volt battery.
