A genuinely new type of pedal?

I don’t normally make posts about new pedals because they are usually variants on existing themes.  However, TC Electronic has just announced a new pedal called the Mimiq Doubler which seems to be a genuinely new type of pedal.  It replicates your guitar sound with tiny variations in parameters such as the pitch or timing in order to sound as though you have doubled (or trebled or quadrupled) the guitar track.  It splits the guitars into a stereo signal, arranged depending on the number of dubs, and really sounds impressive in their video demo.

Go to the TC Electronic Website for the Mimiq Doubler product page.  It is supposed to be available this month (September 2016) for $129 / €129 (maybe around £110) although I haven’t yet found it on retailers’ websites.  Congratulations to TC Electronic for managing to innovate in the pedal market!

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
