The Pandora PX4A Acoustic Personal Multi Effects Processor transforms sterile-sounding piezo output into deep, warm acoustic tone for great sound whether practicing, recording, or playing live. 82 effects include REMS modeling of the resonance and vibrational character of great acoustic guitars. Vintage and modern instruments have been modeled with painstaking detail to produce realistic, rich, and natural sound. Models also include a resonator guitar, a banjo, 12-string, and a nylon-string guitar. There's even one that simulates the drone tones of ethnic instruments such as a tambura.
There is also a full range of standard effects such as compressor, limiter, echo, delay, reverb, and chorus.
The PX4A has 50 presets and 50 user programs that allow up to 8 simultaneous effects per program. Also included is a notch filter effect for protection against feedback, plus an auto notch function that automatically detects the feedback point during performance.
Like other Pandoras, the PX4A offers an intuitive, knob-based interface and backlit LCD display. The TAP button can be used to set delay times or a rhythm pattern tempo.
A sophisticated phrase trainer can record up to 30 seconds from an external audio source for looped playback, which can then be slowed down without affecting the pitch. While in Phrase Trainer mode, you can record any of the 100 PCM-based, built-in rhythm and bass patterns and their instrument simultaneously, then practice soloing over the recorded phrase.
The aux in jack lets you play along with external audio sources, and a key transpose function allows you to shift the key of the external audio source for versatile practice. An auto chromatic tuner with a mute function is also included.
The PX4A can be powered by 4 AAA batteries for up to 10 hours of continuous use, or by an optional AC adapter.
