Inspired by the idea to mimic the crackle and static of FM radio loss, Fairfield Circuitry built the Roger That, a one-of-a-kind signal degradation pedal. While it sounds great when churning out thick, crushing distortion and fuzz, it can also be tuned to create extreme textures, wild artifacts, and old-school transistor radio sounds. If you've been searching for a premium distortion pedal with a unique sonic character, the Roger That is an excellent choice.
The Roger That features a 5-knob interface with two mini toggles, allowing users to create a wide range of distorted tones. The Wet and Dry controls allow players to blend in their affected/unaffected signal as desired, while the Drive knob sets the input level, from clean to dirty. Pushing the Drive control generates extreme non-linearities from the modulator/demodulator circuit, resulting in grittier, crunchier textures.
The Shift and Tune controls are mutually dependent and highly interactive, making them a playground for sonic deviance. Tune acts as the dial on a radio receiver, sweeping through a broad spectrum of possible sounds (this can be controlled remotely via CV.) Shift alters the accuracy of tracking for the incoming modulated signal. Together, these two controls can create a wealth of tones, from slightly dirty to washed-out with static and everything in between. For players who want more settings to tweak, the Roger That also has a mini toggle that extends the range of the Tune control and a switch that applies a voice filter (300Hz-3kHz) to the wet signal.
Bringing transistor radio static and crushing distortion together in one pedal, the Fairfield Circuitry Roger That is great for experimental players looking for a new flavor of grit.
