Bend Sonic Reality to Your Will
Matthews Effects’ The Chemist Atomic Modulator is a do-it-all modulation lab in a guitar pedal with an analog-emulation chorus, a mind-altering phaser, and an organ-style polyphonic octaver. The fun starts with two rows of identical controls, allowing you to switch between the top and bottom row with the push of a button. With the controls always visible and editable on the fly, this works to give you the convenience of presets without having to deal with pesky programming or annoying menu diving. Set each row for a completely different sound — a lush chorus on one, for instance, and a phaser on the other — and alternate between them instantly with a toe tap. For each set of controls, there is a slide switch on the side of the pedal that lets you select either Cobalt, a classic lush chorus; Lithium, a polyphonic organ octave effect; or Iridium, a swirlicious phaser.
