The Wahoo is a dual analogue filter stomp box where each filter can be configured as low-pass or band-pass and operate independently in wah pedal, envelope, LFO, and pitch-tracking modes. The warm-sounding fully analogue signal path is digitally controlled for precision, configurability and adaptability. Whether you want to recreate the character of vintage wah/filter pedals or break new sonic barriers, the Wahoo can do it for you.
By using an analogue filter topology based on vintage synthesizer filters, the WahooTM generates a warm tone with an organic feel. Something that’s not possible using digital effects. A DRIVE control lets you gently overdrive the filters to increase the warmth or crank it up to get fuzz-wah tones.
The filters have a wide frequency range of 10Hz–4kHz, and wide resonance range from flat to self-oscillation. Moreover, resonance is not fixed, but can be varied dynamically so it can track the cutoff frequency to further expand your creative possibilities: from the funkiest filtered bass to the subtlest of tonal variations. A mixer allows the amount of each filter in the effect to be controlled, and allows the dry signal to be mixed into the output. It also has a drive control to let you overdrive the filter to make it so warm it fizzes.
Packed with innovations, the WahooTM lets you invent new sounds.
- Unique patent-pending pedal sensor for super-fine precision control that will never wear out.
- Transparent-True-Bypass giving all the benefits of true-bypass without the switching noise.
- Dual-filter design allows enhanced sonic possibilities that have more depth and are more vocal-sounding than most
- other filter pedals.
- sonuus pitch-tracking technology provides novel pitch-tracking filter effects.
- Response curves let you tailor the feel of the filter response.
The sturdy, lightweight aluminium chassis, paired with modern robust electronic design ensures that the Wahoo will stand up to the demands of the toughest gigs. Powered by DC, battery or USB, and with modern- yet-retro-styling, you can be confident it will fit into your rig. For the WahooTM, we designed a brand new type of position sensor that allows super-fine precision control with no mechanical couplings. As a result, the pedal control on the WahooTM won’t get scratchy and will never wear out!
Analogue with the convenience of digital: the Wahoo has 100 expertly-crafted factory presets and can store 100 user presets, allowing instant access to your favourite settings. With on-pedal control for instant tweakability and a USB connection for software editing and MIDI automation, the Wahoo is the perfect solution for the performing musician.
A USB connection lets you connect WahooTM to a computer where the Desktop Editor Software allows deeper preset editing and manipulation. USB-MIDI can be used to sync internal LFOs and to automate the filter parameters. You can also configure the expression pedal and control panel to send MIDI controller messages to drive software instruments and effects.
