The Electro-Harmonix Intelligent Harmony Machine is the perfect pedal to use when your guitar needs to occupy more space in the mix. This 2-in-1 harmonizer and polyphonic pitch-shifter pedal offers exceptionally smooth tracking for single notes and whole chords in all 12 keys. There are two principle operating modes: Intelligent Harmony Mode and Polyphonic Override Mode. Intelligent Harmony Mode offers up diatonically correct harmonies according to the set key; Polyphonic Override Mode engages a pitch-shifting function akin to Electro-Harmonix’s classic Pitch Fork pedal. Each mode offers 11 different harmonization/pitch settings to choose from. Of course, the Intelligent Harmony Machine also includes a Momentary mode with adjustable sweep time. The pedal comes with a mono input with stereo outs and dry-through for creative signal routing.
The most impressive feature on the Intelligent Harmony Machine is its Intelligent Harmony Mode, which delivers diatonic harmonies with no latency. Just select your key and it will provide anything from single note harmonies to complex 2- and 3-part harmonies — all with exceptionally smooth and accurate tracking. It’s like having two more guitarists playing along with you in perfect time! Intelligent Harmony Mode is polyphonic, which allows you to dial up harmonies for entire chords as well as leads. There are 11 stellar harmonization options to choose from.
Intelligent Harmony Machine is much more than an advanced harmonizer pedal. It comes equipped with a polyphonic override switch that locks you into polyphonic pitch shifting reminiscent of the well-loved Pitch Fork pedal. Use Polyphonic Override Mode to transform your guitar into a baritone guitar, a down-tuned riff machine, or even put a virtual “capo” on the fret of your choice. And with the pedal’s stereo outputs, Polyphonic Override Mode also lets you create stereo doubling effects from mono! Just pan the dry output to one side and the wet output to the other, and you’ll instantly have a huge stereo spread. Polyphonic override mode has 11 pitch-shifting settings to choose from. Additionally, the Major/Minor switch allows you to select whether the seconds and thirds will be major or minor. Here are your options:
