Gear Review: Great Divide 2.0

GodlykeTWA copyTWA GD-02 Great Divide 2.0

Godlyke Distributor’s Totally Wycked Audio GD-02 Great Divide® is an analog synth octaver guitar pedal. It combines an analog octave divider circuit with proprietary synth technology to create a new kind of guitar effect with five independent voices. These five voices are programmed and mixable by using slider pots. You can get sounds from classic “stompbox” octave divider to multi-layered synth sounds and envelope follower treatments.

Features include a relay-based, true hardwired bypass that automatically reverts to bypass if power is lost. Power comes from an included 9-volt power supply—sorry no batteries allowed. Other controls are: dry signal with level fader, -1 octave down and +1 octave up both with separate level faders & low pass filter controls, +1 octave envelope mode, Sub voice and Syn voices with separate level faders and individually selectable between -1, -1.5, -2 or -2.6 intervals.

There are four selectable waveforms for the SYN voice and a single send/return TRS Effects Loop to patch in external effects. The TWA GD-02 Great Divide sells for $399 direct from http://godlyke.com or call 866-246-3595.
