From "Superstition" synth bass to "Blue Orchid" stacked leads and beyond, the EHX Mono Synth infuses your guitar signal with 11 vintage monophonic synth emulations straight out of the '70s and '80s. No instrument mods, MIDI, or special pickups are required — just plug straight in as you would any other pedal. Once you dial in a sound you love, save patches to any of 11 user presets and recall with lightning speed. The Mono Synth's Dry and Synth knobs let you blend back in a jigger or snifter of your untouched guitar signal for note clarity and enhanced realism. An expression pedal input (pedal not included) unlocks real-time parameter control without touching a knob.
There are so many cool sounds that you can dial in with EHX’s Mono Synth pedal. You get 11 great-sounding synthesizers to start from. The Sensitivity control adjusts how your playing dynamics trigger the synthesizer, allowing you to fine-tune the pedal’s response to your rig and playing style. From there, you can adjust a key parameter for each of the 11 synth types with the Control knob. And — if you’re still hungering for more — you can use the Mono Synth’s Expression input to gain real-time control over an entirely different parameter. Beyond that, you can create, save, and recall 11 user presets, one for each of the 11 synth sounds. At Music Experience, we appreciate the Mono Synth’s inspiring combination of intuitive operation and profound tweakability.
The EHX Mono Synth transforms your guitar into eleven great sounding synthesizers… from vintage synth emulations to fat, stacked voices to soaring lead sounds and more. The Mono Synth was designed to work on guitar without any modifications, special pickups or MIDI implementation. Its intuitive layout makes it easy to use and easy to dial in cool sounds quickly. The pedal’s DRY dial adjusts the dry guitar volume at the Synth Output while SYNTH controls the volume of the synthesizer sound at the Synth Output. Used together they let you create just the right mix. The SENS control, short for sensitivity, adjusts how playing dynamics trigger the synthesizer and allows you to fine-tune the pedal’s response to your guitar and playing style. With the CTRL knob you can adjust a key parameter for each of the eleven synth types. It varies depending on the preset and provides extra tweakability for customizing your sound. There’s also an EXP input which lets you control an entirely different parameter in real-time with an expression pedal! Using the built-in Preset footswitch, a user customizable preset for each of the eleven synth sounds can be created, saved and recalled. The factory presets are also easy to restore should you wish to. From string-like synths, to aggressive resonant sounds and deep drones and bell-like tones, the Mono Synth puts a collection of hot synthesizers at your fingertips.
