Not often does a pedal come across the Pedals And Effects track that gets bumped to the front of the queue! The Malekko Scrutator demanded we shoot a video as soon as I got it! This pedal is the best designed bit reducing pedal yet! So many reasons but overall, the most synthesizer like bit reducer I have come across and here is why!
The Scrutator is a bitcrusher in a sense but Malekko added the much needed preamp that drives the pedal into full effect, and added a filter that is controllable by an expression or CVR device. This allows the musician to get real synth like envelopes and heavy crushing sweeps! I really love the size as well, so it will fit very nicely on my travel boards!
