Tina Arkos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Try before you buy impractical!"

Electro-Harmonix Micro Synth
Guitar Synth with signal mix between guitar, octave to octave above and below.


What mintressait CTAIT the possibility davoir an analog bass sound (with or without the guitar) and also the cot octavia (not fuzz or fuzz).
The handling is very easy and intuitive rglages are trs.


We must spend time to get his wish, but you get there. Plutt sounds are good but the problem comes from the trigger (from how much signal is leffet dclenche).
It is difficult dobtenir trs sound (if not impossible in my case) that can both dlivrer good sound on the soft attacks and attacks muscles.
Jai tried every possible rglages trigger as well as the inner knob to change the gain dentre but nothing.
Now with an attack always sounds straightforward but beware INTERESTED dlivrs are all dmme note decay trs noisegate rgl violent!


Careers News saw that I wanted to do, I'll keep my good old double whammy for the guitar with a low (too bad for the analog) and I take a Fulltone Ultimate Octave famous for its used by Jeff Beck Good Bye Pork Pie Hat (Dunlop priori or Tycobrahe Octavia).
In fact the real question that I forgot to ask me is from the bass and what sounds octavia going t'intresser in your musical context?
And would rponse t: no.
So for those who are connected with this, ask yourself this question and go impractical to try before you buy. ;)

savardgiom's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" great but to be tested before"

Electro-Harmonix Micro Synth
Nice pedal
you can mix at leisure: the signal, one octave below, an octave above and the signal saturated / fuzz (very convincing):

Left: the level at which the effect is triggered

Right: delay of attack, brightness and two filters ... and a tip speed between filters (intuitively it works very well)


The set, basically, is simple.
But the possibilities are almost endless.
Well not entirely done, ...


... but we can do a lot of things. Personal:
- The big riff (with octave below and above)
- Synth effects with the sound that came gradually (with the delay of attack)
- Percussive sounds ... even if they do not use too much

I love the opportunity to play with the knobs ... to do just the sound, I put that in front of a looper, and it's magic, playing with filters, etc..


This is an exciting and useful toy if he finds his place
I have had no trouble making.

on the other hand is actually to try:
- Because there is just best to do a bass part
- Because there are also MOOG
- Because it is rich in setting ... and because we do not all games or a directory that is ready for this kind of sound.

So I recommend, but after testing and reflections.

Splotch's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" difficult to take charge"

Electro-Harmonix Micro Synth
synthethiseur analog guitar.

Input and output jacks, standard 9v power supply.

Settings slider, switch foot


The manual is indispensable if only for the examples that really give you an idea of ​​the capacity of the machine.

It is really quite complicated to master the craft.

The trigger button to adjust the sensitivity.

The voice part mix it adjusts the mix between the sound of the octave, the guitar, that of the higher octave and square wave that gives a little sound distortion.

Attack delay can play on the attacks and remove them if necessary for the effects of water that appear slowly.

The game sweep filter is the most delicate, the Resonance knob handles something between an intensity of oscillation and the harmonics and it's hard to describe the term resonance is not inappropriate. The buttons start and stop freq determines the height of departure and end so we can choose the direction of the sweep. The button determines the speed rate of oscillation.

The issue is simple in configuration, but hard to get something just because according to preset the longer it will take the neck pickup at the bridge for a better result.

In addition it is monophonic, which limits a lot the game

We can get many different sound but it can not save or move from one to another easily. No preset, not noon. Sliders tend to move during the transport bag.


We obtain various sounds sometimes difficult to use but can mimic a monophonic analog synthesizer without the possibility of sounds that far.

The opportunity to play with the mixture of octaves can really get results very distinct, it is a machine to explore.

Small problem in that it is monophonic, so not everything is possible. Moreover it tends to get the note after a moment, the proper setting of the trigger is important. The overall output level is quite low on the model I own, whatever the guitar.


I've had at least six months, the first pedal of this kind I have. The sound is undeniably good but its flaws make it a difficult to use live. Unless you have really noticed his réglafge it will be merely a single sound. The pedal has a format so even with the new case XO. (Equivalent to two bosses format).
