NAMM Discovery - control delay/reverb parameters wirelessly!
« on: February 13, 2014, 12:38:59 AM »
I was walking around at NAMM one day, and I was in the lighting and audio gear section. Not the guitar area, in other words, but I saw a guitar player standing there whom I recognized. It was the amazing Jake Hertzog. He has been writing a column in a guitar mag called "Hey Jazz Guy", so I called out "Hey Jazz Guy!" to see if it indeed was him. Sure enough, he responded right away! He's a super nice fellow, and a fantastic jazz-rock type of player. I had a good chat with him.

He was there supporting Aalberg Audio, a Norwegian company. Turns out they have very interesting products. To me, this was one of the most interesting effects units I saw at NAMM.

What's cool about it? That you can control the parameters of the effects via a bluetooth device, which you can put on your guitar, your strap, etc. There's a dial, and you can select whether you want to control the feedback, time or mix of the delay pedal. That is very smart! You don't need any footpedals to control parameters - it's all done via the blutetooth controller.

Have a look at Jake's video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3Azo29TFuo.

They've certainly come a long way in effects innovations. Back in the day, If a player had reverb, tremolo, a fuzz box and an Echoplex he was at the top of the heap!
