Experience fuzz and distortion like you've never heard before.
The Gamechanger Audio Plasma Rack is a 1U sized high-end audio effects unit designed for professional and studio use. At its heart is the unique High Voltage Distortion concept — a brand new way of analog signal processing developed in 2018 by Gamechanger Audio.
By using a high-voltage step-up flyback transformer, Plasma Rack turns your instrument’s signal into a rapid series of electric discharges in a Xenon-filled tube. These powerful discharges (up to 5500 Volts) then get picked up by a specially designed electromagnetic receiver and turned back into audio-level signal. This process results in a large amount of punishingly heavy distortion, and also saturates the sound with a wide range of harmonics and overtones. The harmonic artifacts, created as a byproduct of the high-voltage discharge are uncommon in traditional signal amplification, and therefore Plasma distortion is unlike anything you have heard before.
The way Plasma Rack reacts with different instruments and sound sources simply cannot be recreated with any other analog machine, plugin or by digital sound modeling Simplified Wet Signal Chain: Input -> (EQ if on) -> Transformer to High Voltage -> Xenon Tube -> Antenna that picks up the electromagnetic vibrations surrounding the Tube -> (EQ if off) -> Blend with Clean -> Output
