OK, It doesn't matter what kind of Electro Acoustic you have in terms of Bodyshape ( i.e. Dreadnought, Jumbo, Concert etc.) This pedal can accommodate all of them…
Imagine you have the best example of a Dreadnought guitar you can find.
I mean a really really good one… really really expensive and great sounding…..
Next imagine that you have a terrific recording room, purpose built for recording acoustic instruments by some of the best studio builders in the world……
Finally imagine you have a collection of some of the world's best microphones… they're all there, Neumann's, AKG's , Telefunkens etc…
Now imagine recording that really good sounding guitar, in that perfect recording room with some of the best mics in the world….
THEN… you apply some Fishman mathematics…..
The Mathematics supplies you with data to create a Sonic picture of the sound. A picture that can be mapped using very high precision EQ…
Next you plug your own guitar into the mathematics and you see the sonic data of the sound of your guitar…..
Finally, the Fishman magic mathematics are able to change the data from YOUR guitar and get it to match the data of the really great guitar recording using something akin to a 20,000 band graphic eq…..
THAT, is what this box does.
And it offers you 16 different variations of microphone as a starter….
If you are trying to record your instrument in a studio or a room that doesn't have the best sound or the best mics, then this box will be your saviour.
Just select your instrument type, and then turn the select button to access 16 different mic types…
But remember, this is just the start, once you've found a sound that's closest to what you wanted, then you have a 3 -band eq and compressor to tailor it exactly to your needs.
Add to that automatic feedback suppression with up to 3 notches, chromatic tuner, effects loop, plus a high-quality balanced XLR D.I and you're away….
But that's not all, the included Aura Image Gallery software provides access to an ever-expanding list of instruments recorded using world-class studio mics and techniques.
Just download the gallery software, and then you can have access to some very famous Artists guitars images, and some very unusual instruments.
