Kismet is an incredible new overdrive/distortion pedal that combines 100% analog tone with digital features. It uses progressive diode clipping, a method of sculpting the distortion with two sets of diodes clipping at different levels. That gives Kismet a wide gain range with just the right amount of compression throughout.
Kismet has a digital microcontroller that works in the background, capable of changing the internal resistances of all its settings. That gives Kismet the ability to save and recall presets and an innovative expression control that can sweep any or all settings, in any amounts, any directions, all at the same time. Kismet also has full MIDI support, making it a perfect match for any MIDI equipped setup.
INNOVATIVE EXPRESSION CONTROL Take complete creative control over Kismet with expression control. Kismet's expression input allows (almost) any volume or expression pedal to control any or all settings, in any amounts, and any directions, all at the same time.
It's simple: save whatever settings you'd like for the "heel" (expression pedal rocked back), and save any different combination of settings for the "toe" (rocked forward). Kismet will do the rest, sweeping all of the settings at the same time as the expression pedal is rocked.
Use it to create a constant volume gain control, a foot operated tone control, or really bend your tone from clean and bright to aggressive high gain. NOTE: Kismet uses the most common expression polarity. Expression pedals that do not have TIP-to-WIPER polarity can use this adapter to become compatible. MIDI unlocks even more of Kismet's abilities. Kismet's memory expands to 100 positions with MIDI, and all of those extra spots can be used to store presets -or- expression settings. MIDI can also take direct control over all of the settings and footswitches.
