Update June 2018:
After (way too many) years in the making, we are in process of custom Beta units for a select few who want to explore together. Boards are getting a scrub and the pedal will be made smarter.
Hyper-Expression is just the starting point. We believe SoulPedal® could be a new use case for other areas of control such as in sports. Imagine a surfer segway type controller to guarantee balance for learners (or a surf master when reversed for extreme carving). Or imagine twisting your foot to control volume or intensity, or swiping your foot for more features. Maybe it learns your style of playing too. This technology could even help the physically challenged in new ways (and we’d love to hear how this could help you).
A common complaint for musicians is that they have to look for their pedals while playing and singing, (along with the mess of pedals that take up limited stage space). SoulPedal® makes it easier because you don’t have to look down at all, and you can be anywhere On Stage™. These solutions are huge but also challenging. Fortunately, the introduction of motion sensing for drone use is accelerating use cases in these newer fields.
SoulPedal® allows for musician effects control using natural body motions and is equipped with remote On/Off using foot Gesture Recognition.
Unlike any other products on the market today, there are none so easy to use, only 3oz and a natural insole fit with versatility to follow. Initial units will include MIDI out, an optional classic analog Wah-Wah with True Bypass, and several other goodies including Foot Sensitivity, Curve Response Profile, and a classic Buffer/Driver. Just recently, we prototyped an Expression Pedal feature to control other effects as well.
The image below is yet another old design. Stay tuned for a way better way to do this.
