Pilot Wave™ by Step Audio multiplies the sonic potential of every MIDI-enabled effect. Pilot Wave sequences effects parameters, unleashing hidden pedal potential.
This powerful new controller and patented technology turns any MIDI-enabled pedal into a dynamic, rhythmic musical instrument.
Parameters on audio effect pedals normally don't change until you manually adjust them. Some pedals allow expression controllers to "sweep" knobs up and down.
Pilot Wave takes MIDI-enabled pedals to the next level by accessing every available parameter on hundreds of pedals, then dynamically modifying those parameters in sequences of up to 16 steps.
