Electro-Harmonix has unveiled the Superego+, a new pedal that builds on the synthesis platform of the Superego Synth Engine and adds an array of new features.

From the company: The Superego+ springboards off the Superego’s ability to create synth effects, sound layers, glissandos, infinite sustain and more with the addition of a complete effects section featuring 11 effect types, an EXP input for effect parameter control plus an EXT jack for a three-button controller.

The Superego+ is equipped with the following effects:
DETUNE: pitch detune, EXP pedal controls pitch
DELAY: warm, analog sounding delay, feedback is preset, EXP controls delay time up to 2 seconds
ECHO: pristine digital delay, feedback is preset, EXP pedal controls delay time up to 2 seconds

PITCH: pitch shifting effect over a +/- one octave range. EXP controls whammy
FILTER: resonant low-pass filter. EXP pedal controls frequency.

The pedal’s user interface provides exceptional control and flexibility. The Superego+ is equipped with Dry, Effect, Attack, Decay, Threshold, Layer and Gliss knobs, plus Rate and Depth knobs for the Effects Section. Four foot-switchable Freeze modes: Moment, Sustain, Auto and Latch, plus a Live Effects mode where the dry signal is routed thru the built-in effects and the internal synth engine is disabled, are also included.

The polyphonic Superego+ works with guitar as well as other instruments including bass, keyboards, vocals, drums, etc. The pedal is available now, comes equipped with an EHX 9.6DC-200 AC Adaptor and features a U.S. Street Price of $250.
