It's like having an Atari 2600 for a stompbox, but even BETTER!  (By Sallyport Punk)

Having been intimidated by ring mods, yet craving a synthy sound effect focusing on 8bit simplicity I was so excited Catalinbread created and produced this pedal. Now that I own one, I am obsessed with it. This pedal plays surprisingly well with me, my guitar, and other effects! It has an impressive range. I have been able to find and extract all the sounds I have been looking for - it goes from Pong to early NES and back! The compactness of this pedal is a highlight, and I am thankful for it tiny size, but a pedal this unique and with so much creative capacity should be at least twice the size. Seriously, the box should be bigger and obnoxious, announcing it's presence and displaying it's awesomeness like a peacock. Instead, it hides among all the other pedal boxes on the board barely noticeable. Yet it's four times more cool and fun than pedals twice it's size. I got a newer generation one in the bright neon lime color and Centipede-inspired? video game graphics, but I miss the older versions' aesthetics. The look of the old pedal really got me! This new version has tiny black knobs, which I am still not sure about aesthetically or functionally (I really liked the old red ones). Versatility wise, this thing can crank out bit crushed sounds ranging from fuzz and distortion to cool tremolo effects. You got the four knobs, plus the hi/low switch in addition to your guitar's volume and tone controls for endless manipulations. Catalinbread has made a seriously awesome pedal! (Posted on 9/7/13)

Catalinbread: Heliotrope

Your search for that elusive alien sound might just end right here. Inspired by the idea of an “analog bit-crusher,” which of course is technically impossible, Catalinbread created the “Harmonic Pixelator.” Like a ring modulator that actually listens to what you play, the Heliotrope responds with a robotic but musically relevant sound that will lead you down the rabbit hole.

In addition to the self-explanatory Volume and Gain controls, the Heliotrope gives you control of the Sample Rate, which allows you to harmonize with the effect, or strive for complete dissonance. The Resolution control lets you control the focus of the pedal, to determine how much you break down the signal. The Hi/Lo Range switch allows the effect to operate two different ranges of frequencies: Hi: 1.44kHz - 6.66kHz / Lo: 333Hz - 1.58kHz.

Catalinbread: Heliotrope Features:

  • True Bypass
  • 9-18VDC or Battery Operation
  • Volume, Gain, Sample Rate and Resolution Controls
  • Hi/Lo Range switch
