The Electro-Harmonix Mod 11 is a pedal that gives guitar players 11 digital modulators in a single stompbox. Flanging, phasing, chorusing, and more are made possible in this single effects pedal.
Rate and Depth controls are provided, as is a rotary knob that selects among your 11 different effects. Each effect also boasts multiple modes. Use the Mode button to select among those. Hold down the Mode button, and you can access secondary effects for each modulation type, giving you lots of operations for tweaking your tone.
A Volume/Color knob rounds out the controls on the Mod 11. For six of the effects, this knob controls level. On the other five, however, the parameter changes with the selected effect, letting you control the amount of feedback on a flanger, the resonance of a filter, and more.
This pedal offers a buffered bypass circuit to protect your tone over long cable runs. The footswitch can be used to engage or bypass the effect, and also to tap the tempo for certain effects. If you'd prefer to use an external tap tempo switch, you can plug it into the 1/4" tap input on the side of the pedal. A power supply is included.
11 Modes of Modulation
- TREM: Tremolo modulates your signal’s volume, and the selectable modes allow your playing envelope to control modulation rate or depth
- HARM: In harmonic tremolo, the signal is split into high and low frequency bands and modulated between the two, and the selectable modes allow your playing envelope to control modulation rate or depth
- VIBR: Vibrato modulates your instrument’s pitch, and selectable modes allow your playing envelope to control modulation rate or depth
- UNI: This mode pays homage to the classic Univibe pedals, including chorus, vibrato, and added overdrive modes
- CHORUS: This mode gives you a warbling, doubling, chorus effect like the EHX Small Clone, and its extra modes include tri-chorus and bass chorus effects
- ROTARY: This rotary speaker cabinet simulation has modes including overdrive and envelope control over rotation speed
- FLANGE: This mode offers additive and subtractive flanging, with multiple LFO shapes, including an envelope follower
- TZF: Through Zero Flanger is an effect that crosses through the zero point of the sweep, where the modulated delayed signal meets back with the dry signal; modes for both additive and subtractive flanger plus barber-pole flanger are included
- PHASE: Choose from a 4-, 6-, or 8-stage phaser, with multiple LFO shapes, including an envelope follower
- PITCH: This modulated pitchshifter lets you select your main pitch shift and modulate around it; extra functionality includes a dry blend mode and stepped pitch modes
- FILT: This offers modulated filter effects like those on classic analog synths, including low pass, high pass, and band pass, as well as multiple LFO shapes available, including a Q-Tron-style envelope follower
