New Pedal: AdrenaLinn III

Got a new (to me) Roger Linn AdrenaLinn III pedal. For a while, I've been looking at pedals that will let me do several different things: Midi-synced tremolo (like a Gig-FX Pro-Chop), Midi-synced beat slicing (like a Boss SL-20), Midi-synced delay (like a Strymon Timeline), a pedal-operated Midi drum machine (like the Beat Buddy), an amplifier sim (like the Tech21 Character pedals), and a Midi step sequencer (like the Electro-Harmonix 8-Step Program).

And behold, the AdrenaLinn III does all of these things, and then some. So far, I'm extremely impressed for a single box that has all of these features in it. It's got more tricks in its bag than you can shake a stick at.

Here's a gratuitous shot of it sitting on my pedal board. For what this thing cost, it blows away anything I've seen, except maybe a high-end rack or floor multi-FX unit. And everything on it is able to be controlled via MIDI. It can replace 6-8 pedals, depending on what you want to do with it. Absolutely incredible. Once I wrap my brain around how to make it do what I want, I will post up some demo videos of it.

  1. I got one of these myself. Let me know how you incorporate it into your live set up 😉

  2. You don’t find it sucking tone…?

  3. “Tone” is in the ear of the beholder. Sounds fine to me!
