The new WMDevices Acoustic Trauma is the ultimate analog distortion machine. Two specially voiced preamps give light break up to full stack overdrive to huge sustaining crunch. Those preamps drive a 3 band boosting parametric EQ to voice your tone in any way. Then, a powerful and transparent noise gate kills the noise caused by incredible gain.
The Acoustic Trauma can produce the most massive sounds from a pedal. It is capable of causing hearing damage due to the high peaking nature of the EQ bands. This is your solution to cut through the mix, or make your fans writhe in pain.
- Stomp Switch - This footswitch activates the Acoustic Trauma - the large red LED will light and your face will be pummeled
- Cool Preamp - The leftmost preamp is a nice low-medium gain overdrive stage with very smooth clipping - it cleans up well when guitar volume is rolled down
- Hot Preamp - This preamp is designed to just get louder and add sustain - it is not designed to clean up, just to rock - you will find that the more you turn the gain up, it will just crunch a little more but the tone doesn't change, it just adds sustain
- Preamp Blend - Use this to blend the dry preamp sounds to the output, bypassing the EQ stages - note that the phase relationships change when analog filters are used, so blending the dry signal may produce out of phase sounds and frequency canceling
