It's not often a truly unique guitar effect comes along, like the Electro-Harmonix Superego synth engine pedal. The Superego guitar pedal is part synthesizer, part sustainer, and part sampler, allowing you to "freeze" your guitar sound and create layers of sustained soundscapes. You can sustain chords for etheric pad-like effects, or play synthesizer-like leads on your guitar. You can even sustain a note or chord, then "freeze" it while soloing over it. With all-analog circuitry, a built-in effects loop, and a totally original sound, you'll love exploring the possibilities of the Electro-Harmonix Superego synth engine pedal.

- Keyboard-like effects from your guitar
- Three modes cover a wide range of uses
- Built-in effects loop
Keyboard-like effects from your guitar
The Electro-Harmonix Superego uses a sample-and-hold circuit to grab a snippet of your guitar's signal, and sustains it to create a pad-like cloud of sound. If you're playing rhythm, the Superego can add depth to your arrangements that you'd normally only get with a keyboard player. When you play lead, you can create synthesizer-like tones that have a character all their own.
Three modes cover a wide range of uses
To get the most out of the Electro-Harmonix Superego you'll want to explore the three operation modes. Momentary mode means the effect is only active when you step on the footswitch, and returns to bypass operation when you lift your foot - it's perfect for sustaining the last note of your solo, for example. Latch mode sustains anything you play while holding down the footswitch like Momentary mode, but continues sustaining until you turn the effect back off - you can use this mode to "record" a layer of sound to play over. And finally there's Auto mode, which doesn't require you hold the footswitch to apply the effect - just play through the Superego, and it'll transform whatever you play into an entirely new sound.
Built-in effects loops
If you like the unique sound of the Electro-Harmonix Superego, then you'll love that it has a built-in effects loop. Use this to add yet another sonic dimension to your tone by adding a delay pedal, chorus effect, reverb, or other effect to the Superego's signal. Whatever effects you add to the Superego's effects loop will only process the wet signal of the Superego, which means you can create custom sound effects that wouldn't be possible with a single input and output.
