ALM Busy Circuits are pleased to announce the 'MFX Pedal’, a new standalone stereo multi effects processor for guitar and synths.

The ‘MFX Pedal’ brings all the effects and functionality of our popular Eurorack MFX module to both guitars and synths in standalone form with 18 different fully featured effects programs and additional MIDI, Knob and Expression pedal control, tap tempo, an optional analogue gain stage and true relay (or DSP) based bypass.

Inspired by our favourite classic hardware effects processors, the MFX incorporates DSP effect technologies from the dawn of digital effects in the 70s to the present day. Reshape sounds with the distortion and dynamics engines. Bend time space and pitch with multiple feature rich reverb and delay engines. Modulate signals with the flexible panner, frequency shifter, and range of ensemble effects. Fracture sounds with the one of a kind granular and glitch engines.

The MFX Pedal user interface is designed to be familiar, quick and easy to use. Each program contains a wide range of controllable parameters both directly editable or freely assigned to knobs, MIDI or expression control. Each program includes factory presets as well as the ability to store and recall user presets. All states are preserved across power cycles.

Available for the first time outside of modular, the MFX pedal easily brings the character and uniqueness of ALM effects to your guitar rig, DAWless setup, mixer effects send or synth collection.

  • A large varied collection of 18 effects programs, all with numerous controllable parameters.
  • Effect parameters freely assignable to panel knobs, expression input or MIDI control.
  • Works well with guitar, line and ‘pro’ level instruments.
  • Inbuilt optional analogue gain stage (+10dB) for low level signals.
  • Global selectable True Bypass and buffered dsp bypass with foot switch control and LED indication.
  • Stereo I/O paths with all Neutrik jacks.
  • Clip level indication LED.
  • Tap Tempo and triggering via foot switch.
  • Din MIDI input for MIDI beat clock synchronisation and MIDI CC control.
  • All settings remain between power cycles.
  • Factory and user saveable presets per effect.
  • USB-C for quick and easy ‘drag and drop’ firmware updates via computer.
  • Rugged lightweight black anodised aluminium enclosure.
  • 2 Year Warranty.

Effect program list:

Digi-PCM Echo
Feature rich digital delay taking inspiration from early prime time rack delay units with added modern features.

Tape-Tech Echo
Tape style delay with a digital pitch shifter bolted on.

Crumbular Echo
More experimental granular style echo.

Ursa Minor Echoverb
Emulation of the classic Ursa Major ‘Space station’ providing more delays and reverb type effects.

Pocket PL8 Reverb
Emulation of very early digital style reverbs with a dense metallic sound.

Almicon Reverb
Emulation of 80s studio style reverb great for bright rooms and vast synthetic spaces.

Quaidra Reverb
Emulation of a popular 90s rack reverb. Excels at creating airy, atmospheric reverbs.

Yetti Reverb
A more modern FDN based reverb engine. Added pitch shifter for other worldly effects.

Slinky Reverb
Loosely modelled spring type reverb with extra ‘Boing’.

TY-50 Dynamics
A multi mode dynamics processor featuring both classic compression and transient shaping modes.

TH-30 Distortion
A versatile distortion program with distortion types ranging from analog style saturation to intense digital wavefolding.

2051 Bit Corrupter
Real-time audio buffer designed to imitate malfunctioning digital audio equipment.

Modulating Panner
Clock-syncable mono or stereo auto-pan with an additional scan mode that cross fades between 2 input signals. Use for VCA, Panner, crossfader, tremolo type effects.

Ring + Freq Modulator
Pair of classic modulation effects in stereo, tailored towards otherworldly and dissonant sounds.

Ensembles Ensemble
Simulation of classic chorus and ensemble effects. An added digital pitch shifter takes the effect beyond traditional chorus circuits.

Multi Phaser
Great sounding multi stage Phaser with numerous editable parameters.

Squoval Resonator
8 band mono or 4 band true-stereo resonator built from a collection of linked resonant band pass filters.

Utilities
Simple oscilloscope, clock utility and a spectral analyser.

  • Power: 9v DC power, center negative (not included)
  • Current Draw: 100mA (200mA+ supply recommended)
  • Input Impedance: 1MOhm
  • Output Impedance: 1KOhm
  • Max Input level: +8 dBu (2 Vrms ~ approx 5Vpp)
  • Optional Gain Stage: +10 dB
  • Bypass: True Relay & Buffered DSP based
  • Dimensions: 125x65x70mm
  • 16 Bit / 44.1kHz Stereo processing with 32 bit floating point DSP
  • ARM CPU based DSP
Coming soon!
