The Gamechanger Audio PLUS Pedal is a new kind of audio processing engine that offers piano-style sustain for electric guitars and all other melodic instruments. This is more than just a stompbox – it is a vast extension of your instrument that bridges the gap between rhythm and lead playing and lets players explore totally new territories.
The PLUS Pedal does not generate sounds with oscillators and filters! Instead – think of it as a sort of “Smart Looper” that only catches the second half of each note or chord you play and samples that short snippet of sound into a seamless, continuous loop.
This technology called “Real Time Audio Sampling” ensures that each sustained note or chord will retain the exact character of your instrument and your playing style.
This method is also fully responsive to any playing style - create continuous layers of sustain incorporating vibrato, bends, harmonics, trills and other dynamic playing techniques. You can use the whammy bar, play with a slide or experiment with amp feedback or noises – the PLUS Pedal will capture all these tonal nuances and turn them into a continuous sound.
The PLUS Pedal can be used with all other acoustic instruments, such as brass or woodwinds, or even vocals. Use a standard microphone to produce amazing polyphony in real-time and create multiple voices.
The PLUS Pedal is an extension of your instrument, allowing to create multiple layers on the go. From jazz-voice leading to heavy post-rock drones – the Plus Pedal allows the guitarist to do more with the instrument! A useful tool in any context - live performances, songwriting & arrangement, creating drones, ambient soundscapes, cinematic sound effects, and much more.
It is also a fantastic tool for aural training and practicing improvisation. Instead of thinking about which scale shape fits over what changes – the PLUS Pedal focuses all of your attention on listening to the tonal relationships between the chord and the notes you play on top.
The PLUS Pedal is not a looper, nor a delay or a reverb pedal it is a whole new type of effect based on real time sampling and looping. Unlike synth-based units the PLUS does not produce an annoying digital-sounding tone. The PLUS Pedal’s Wet signal is built from short samples of your instrument’s output, thus preserving the character of each note you play. The PLUS Pedal can be used with any melodic instrument, including saxophones, horns, trombones, violins, cellos and many more. The PLUS Pedal features two outputs and a separate FX Loop which lets you create very interesting combinations of pedals

I love the gamechanger quality. However, this pedal doesn’t seem as versatile as I thought it was. It’s totally possible that I haven’t spent enough time with it but that could be because I’m slightly disappointed with its usefulness. I probably should have held off and purchased the light pedal.
Fun pedal, love the input,send...
Great, unique piece of gear
I have only scratched the surface of what this pedal can do, and it is certainly living up to the hype so far. It has 5 layers of sustained notes/chords, more than I have needed so far. The sustains are choppy if you step on the pedal at the same time as the attack, but if you follow the directions and press the Plus pedal a few milliseconds after the attack, it gives you smooth sustain for as long as you dial it in, and releases it instantaneously or with a fade, depending on what you have dialed in (with the tail knob). You can also have the sustains begin instantaneously or swell in with a slight delay (using the Rise knob). I am pairing it with another effects pedal and my fretless bass, and it is absolutely amazing. I am able to play things live that simply couldn't exist before the Plus pedal was made.
Someday I might buy the WET switch that goes with this. Right now, I have more options than I can use immediately.
