Chaos Audio has revealed a digital multi-effects guitar pedal on Kickstarter that could be ideal for budget-minded users or first-timers. The Chaos Stratus marries a customized digital pedalboard, guitar tuner, looper, and metronome, all controlled by the Chaos smartphone app that works on both Andriod and iOS devices.
The company offers a “continuously updated” selection of pedals through an online library, including classic effects like reverb, overdrive, flanger, auto-wah, and fuzz. It also lets you link together multiple effects in any order while controlling what the knobs are set to. The instant you get an effect just so, you can use the app to create pedalboard presets and access tools like a guitar tuner and metronome, also with a looper for basic backing playback.
“Think of it more like a computer than a stompbox,” said Chaos Audio CEO Landon McCoy. “Stratus has all of the amenities guitarists have come to know… from other smart devices including internal memory, a rechargeable battery, USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0, and a functionally aesthetic LED light strip used for the tuner and other tools.”
Chaos Audio is looking to raise $25,000 to get the project started. The price starts at $199 for the super early bird special and goes up to $299 for a custom, laser engraved Kickstarter edition. It’s bound to launch on November 1st, with deliveries starting around July 2021.
