Want two analogue filters with masses of digital control in a compact format,
complete with an expression pedal? UK MIDI specialist Sonuus has the very thing
with its just launched, ‘Best of NAMM’ nominated Wahoo pedal. Tom Quayle put
one of the first production samples through its paces.
Sonuus is a UK-based guitar technology
company run by boffin Dr. James Clark.
Over recent years it has made a real stir
in the world of pitch recognition and
conversion for guitar and bass players,
providing a compact and budget friendly
solution for entering the world of synths and
sequencing. First shown at winter NAMM
2012 where it was nominated for a ‘Best of
NAMM’ award, the Wahoo is the company’s
first effects pedal unit and represents a few
firsts within the industry.
The Wahoo is a dual analogue filter/
wah stomp box where each filter can be
configured as low-pass or band-pass and
operated independently in wah pedal,
envelope, LFO, and pitch-tracking modes.
Each filter features a true analogue design,
similar to those found in vintage synths,
giving the Wahoo a warm organic feel that is
very hard to achieve with digital products.
The digital front end allows for masses
of control, giving you a huge spectrum
of sounds from vocal formant filters, to
envelope controlled wahs, to sequenced

for some truly unique sounds that can be
controlled with pitch recognition: a first for a
Construction quality is very high, as the
Wahoo is made from aluminium, housing
high quality electronic components and a
unique expression pedal design, featuring
a brand new type of position sensor that
allows super-fine precision control with no
mechanical couplings. No potentiometers
here or optical sensors that are susceptible to
dust and wear - in fact, Sonuus claim that
the Wahoo pedal will never become noisy
and will never wear out!
In use the pedal is super smooth and precise,
with just the right range of travel for all of
those fat filter and wah sounds.
