Not often does a pedal come across the Pedals And Effects rack that gets bumped to the front of the queue! The Malekko Scrutator demanded we shoot a video as soon as I got back home! This pedal is the best designed bit reducing pedal yet! So many reasons but overall, the most synthesizer like bit reducer I have come across and here is why!
The Scrutator is a bitcrusher in a sense but Malekko added the much needed preamp that drives the pedal into full effect and added a filter that is controllable by an expression or CVR device. This allows the musician to get real synth like envelopes and heavy crushing sweeps! I really love the size as well, so it will fit very nicely on my travel boards!
Here is Pedal And Effects first solo shot GoPro video by Nick Reinhart and I! We will only get better at this but I want to know if you all are feeling our new direction. Thank you to GoPro for hooking up musicians! I believe our quality just jumped a notch!
