Alexander Defender Digital Overdrive

Alexander Defender Digital Overdrive


As captain of the Defender, your mission is to protect the galaxy using the awesome power of the Stargate Drive. Blast off from your deep space base and take control of the universe.

Why should you use a digital distortion pedal?

No idea.

It sounds pretty horrible.

You should probably buy a Tube Screamer.

Actually, you might what to use this pedal if you're tired of sounding like everybody else.

The sonic scientist at Alexander Pedals have been working overtime to cram the most pedal into the smallest box, and we now present the Neo Series!

Each Neo Series pedal incorporates an advanced 32-bit microcontroller adding presets, expression, and MIDI capability. 

Controls: Level, Drive, Warp, Light, Blend, Matter, Tweak.

    Select Button: Tap to choose a new effect mode or hold to engage the ALT controls

    • OD - Overdrive with a clear midrange character.  This mode ranges from transparent to gritty with a sweep of the Drive knob. Try this mode with the Blend control near noon for a greeat soft-clipping boost.
    • DST - Distortion with a darker, smoother tone.  Gets hairy quickly and loves to party.
    • FZ - Splattery, sizzly fuzz tone.  Don't even bother trying to get this one to clean up, sounds kind of like a toy robot being fed into a garbage disposal.

    Once you've selected your distortion, you can choose from one of three special effects.  Any distortion effect may be combined with any special effect.  Please note that the special effects only work on the distorted sound, and not on the clean blend signal.

    • PIT - Polyphonic octave shifting, applied to the distortion signal only.  The Tweak control adjusts the blend between octave down, distortion, and octave up.  This effect is killer for sub-octave riffing or screaming fuzz freakouts.
    • SPC - Space modulation using a short time delay on the distortion signal.  Tweak controls the delay time from zero to a short slap-back.  Try using the Warp function to sweep the delay time for manual flanger sounds.
    • FLT - Super-tweakable resonant lowpass filter, ideal for synth or wah textures. Light controls the cutoff frequency, Matter controls the resonance or sharpness of the filter.  Tweak mixes between the filtered sound and the unfiltered sound.
