The Gamechanger Audio PLASMA Rack is a 1U sized audio effects unit designed for professional and studio use. The PLASMA is a revolutionary way of producing distortion by converting your instrument’s signal into a series of high-voltage plasma discharges in a sealed xenon filled tube.
The result is an incredibly sharp and sizzling overdrive that is extremely clear and responsive. This patent-pending technology of high-voltage electric discharge also acts as a natural noise-gating device that creates strong contrasts between staccato notes, as well as eliminating all unwanted noise and pick-up hum. The PLASMA’s electric discharge tube produces beautiful visible bolts of lightning that react to the input signal, thus creating a captivating experience for all players. In essence – you are playing a bolt of electricity.
A significant expansion of the unique High Voltage Distortion concept behind PLASMA Pedal, the PLASMA Rack features an extra large xenon tube that conducts audio signal at voltages of up to 5500 volts. Suitable and designed to use with guitar, bass, synthesizer and drum tracks.
PLASMA pedal converts your instrument’s signal into a rapid series of electric discharges, which results in a large amount of non-linear harmonic saturation that causes extremely rich and responsive attacks, and brings out screeching sharp overtones and harmonics. These harmonic artefacts, produced as a by-product of the high voltage discharge are uncommon in traditional signal amplification, and therefore PLASMA distortion is unlike anything you have heard before.
As soon as you stop playing the electrical discharge within the gas-filled tube is interrupted, and the pedal will not produce any output signal at all. This feature allows you to achieve extreme contrasts between individual notes, by eliminating all in-between noises created by the instrument’s pick-ups or by humming strings. This is noise gate can be set to affect the clean signal without added distortion.
The PLASMA distortion loses the original dry input signal and creates a new signal from fluctuations in the electromagnetic field surrounding the gas-discharge tube. This allows for a very wide range of frequencies. The EQ can be switched to affect only the wet sound or dry sound.
