GigBoard: New Multi-Effects

Headrush unveils the Gigboard, a cheaper, physically scaled down version of its massively powerful Pedalboard multi-effect unit and it makes use of a powerful Eleven Rack Sound Engine.


Even though HeadRush have given the GigBoard the mini-me treatment, on spec it appears to remain as powerful under the hood as its acclaimed predecessor, boasting identical quad-core processing power, Eleven HD DSP software and 7″ touchscreen interface, so the Gigboard only loses out in terms of inputs and outputs.

This Gigboard also features unlimited tweakability and sonic possibilities through its powerful amp modelling interface. GigBoard also offers the option to load custom and third-party effects patches and voices in addition to its huge range of onboard models, so there are plenty of tine choices with this one.

All other features from the original are bundled into this unit, including a 20-minute looper, 24 bit quality and a rugged steel chasis with LED footswitches. The unit also weighs in at a very slight 3.24 kilograms – in a nutshell.
