The Pitch Fork transposes an instrument’s pitch over a +/- three octave
range and features three modes which allow the pitch to be transposed
up, down or both, simultaneously. The pitch shift amount can be set to a
fixed interval or continuously varied by an expression pedal or control

The controls are straightforward and intuitive. An 11-position Shift
switch selects the maximum transposition interval ranging from D
(Detune), a shift of 17 cents, through Minor 2nd, Major 2nd, Major 3rd,
Perfect 4th, Perfect 5th, Major 6th, Minor 7th, 1 Octave, 2 Octaves and 3
Octaves. A three position toggle switch controls whether the pitch is
transposed up, down or both. In Dual mode, two pitch-shifted signals are
output. One follows the shift knob as if in the Up position while the
other creates a harmony. Dual Mode settings include M3 up + P5 up, P5 up
+ 1 Oct down, 1 Oct up + 1 Oct down and many others. A Blend knob
controls the mix of the dry signal and the effected signal, and an EXP
jack enables the player to control pitch and glissando with an
expression pedal.

The Latch button selects Latch or Momentary mode which affects how the
footswitch and EXP input behave. In Latch mode, the footswitch toggles
between effect on and buffered bypass each time it’s pressed and the EXP
input continuously varies pitch. In Momentary mode the effect is only
on while the footswitch is depressed and when it is released the Pitch
Fork goes into bypass.

In Latch mode the EXP input controls pitch shift amount, ranging from
unity to the interval set by the Shift knob, and pitch varies
continuously throughout the expression pedal’s range. In Momentary mode
the EXP input controls glissando rate for the Pitch Fork’s footswitch.
When the bypass footswitch is pressed, the Pitch Fork jumps from bypass
to the interval set by the Shift knob. The amount of time it takes to
reach that new note is the glissando rate. When the footswitch is
released the pitch will return to unity at the same rate. That glissando
time can vary between 4 milliseconds to two seconds depending on the
heel/toe position of the expression pedal. The default glissando rate is
60 milliseconds when nothing is plugged into the EXP input.

The Pitch Fork comes equipped with an EHX 9.6DC-200mA power supply and also runs on a 9Volt battery.
