Rig Master conceptors launch Kickstarter campaign
Novel Tones Inc. has launched a campaign on Kickstarter for its guitar and bass analog gear controller, the Rig Master.
After two years of design and testing by renowned artists such as Marcus Miller, Matthieu "M" Chedid and Lee Ranaldo, Novel Tones Inc is now offering the very first units of the Rig Master. A sort of high-tech remote controller for all your analog gear, the Rig Master composed of three units called the Brain, the Bridge and the Brobot, with the following roles:
• The "Brain" is at your feet. It is the unit that you configure and save your presets in in order to recall them as you play.
• The "Bridge" links the Brain to the devices you want to control (stompbox, pedal, amp, etc). The Bridge can be located as far as 100 feet away from the Brain, and up to 6 Bridges can be linked to the Brain.
• The "Brobots" are the contraptions that actually turn the knobs for you. The Brobots turn at the speed of light and they are designed to turn the buttons of any device without ever damaging them. You can plug up to 8 Brobots to each Bridge.
Early models can be bought now at special prices through Novel Tones Inc.'s Kickstarter campaign page. 15 models are available for $790 instead of $1190, the next 30 will be prices $890 and all following models bought during the campaign will be sold for $990 (all prices include shipping to the US and EU, and there are also offers for buying two units at once). All units are planned to ship in May 2016, but the offer ends on November 4th.
