Pitch Shifter

Pitch Shifter

Does exactly what it says: changes the pitch of a note. Is sometimes incorporated into other units, like a digital delay, and is sometimes freestanding. Can be set to a perfect interval, like a third or a fifth, to play parallel harmony with oneself. Set at a fifth, with some distortion, it would allow you to play a power cord with one note! This could yield some cool fast heavy results if you play up and down the neck with it on. Can also be set to some in-between ratios, like halfway between a third and a fourth, or set to a tritone, for some very sick and twisted sonic results.

Usually has two knobs : pitch and mix (ratio of wet to dry signal).

Extreme pitch shifting can be heard on Rage Against The Machine's music, especially on the solo to "Killing In The Name ."
