Do you know a hex player from Africa or Antarctica? 6Appeal is are already in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia but not yet in Africa and Antarctica. If you know anybody who’d be interested, link us:)!

Our friend Joel from Cycfi is almost ready with super exciting hexaphonic guitar pickup system (see http://www.cycfi-research.com/). This is as innovative as you can get with electric guitar technology!
We have published a white paper, explaining the concept of hexaphonic processing and polyphonic distortion. The paper is focused on the technology behind Spicetone’s 6APPEAL™ hexaphonic guitar pedal. The 13 page illustrated paper is free to download as a pdf file:
Hexaphony is one of the very few underexploited innovations that guitar players have yet to discover. The cutting edge of the technology is to combine fully analog sound with post processing capabilites in a digital audio workstation like Ableton Live, Cubase, or Logic Pro. Along with the white paper, a series of short demo videos are published in Youtube. Continue reading “All You Need to Know about Multichannel Guitar”
We invited our friend Mart Pauklin over to shoot some quick demos. Thanks Mart! Only standard gear used, no boutique hand made pickups or strange pickup positioning.
First of all a jolly Fernandes guitar with a Roland GK-3 pickup system attached. No permanent modification need, not a scrath on the guitar. And the positioning of the pickup is standard, close to the bridge. The sound a is rather thin in that position, but this is not the end of the world! Just plug it to our 6Appeal analog distortion/overdrive, and switch on our Root Boost circuit that adds tons of fundamental harmonics.
So, a divided pickup (hex or hexaphonic pickup) is not only for MIDI syntheziser and so on, but it also opens up the gates to multichannel guitar processing! In this video, the strings are panned in stereo; you don’t have to pan it so hard, but this time I did just to make the difference.
