I'm an independent gear developer and have a functioning prototype of a guitar tone processor I'm calling the ToneZzar Harmonic Waveshaper
. Why announce a prototype here? Well, I'm hoping to find a gear manufacturer that would like to add a new, rather unique product to their lineup. There are details and demos at my website below. In a nutshell, it's a SHARC DSP powered tone processor that does not
use amp modeling. I have nothing against modeling, it's great stuff, but I wanted to create a tool that lets people build their own tones and effects from scratch. I guess it's sort of an anti-modeler, but I'm sure it will co-exist peacefully with the modelers.
The hardware was developed a few years ago and all of the SHARC's power is needed for the tone creation processes that I wanted. As such, it does not include standard effects like reverb, chorus, etc. A production version of the unit would use a current generation SHARC to reduce cost and also provide the additional processing power needed for high-quality standard effects.
Please check it out. If you know anyone in the biz that might be interested, please point them my way. If you're a player, I'd like to hear how useful you think this product would be to you. Thanks
