Dwarfcraft has always had an affinity for the weird and glitchy. This release tops them all. What started out as a single stage pitch shifter, a la the Pitchgrinder, the Wizard of Pitch became something brand new.
The pedal’s resolution has been cranked up to 32 bits from the ‘Grinder’s 8, but has the same lo-fi sound. The “speed” control, when set to zero, will behave like a standard pitch shifter, but as you turn up the speed the output will cross fade between the wet and dry signals, allowing for beautiful moving soundscapes, or stimulating modulation at higher rates.
The “Bender” toggle engages a doppler type effect, in which the pitch falls in conjunction with the input signal’s decay. Until the pedal reaches the end of it’s shifting range, where it starts again.
Engaging the “Steps” toggle will further confuse the Wizard, snapping to pitches, rather than sliding, and creating almost random arpeggios. When the Bender mode is active, the speed knob will control the rate of the pitch changes, rather than a cross fade.
While the pedal is perfectly useful for traditional pitch shifting, it is much more at home creating new sounds for adventurous musicians.
