Ramble FX has announced Kismet, an all-new overdrive/distortion pedal that combines a completely analog signal path with presets, expression control of any settings and full MIDI control.

According to a post on Distortion Ltd., Kismet features progressive diode clipping for a wide gain range and digital control that adds four memory positions to let players easily save and recall presets. Kismet also has an innovative expression control that lets you sweep all the unit’s settings at once with a volume or expression pedal. Simply save different pedal settings in the “heel” and “toe” positions, and morph between them using your connected pedal. MIDI expands Kismet’s memory to 100 positions and can take direct control of all settings and footswitches.

Kismet’s features include:

• 100% analog signal path. Progressive diode clipping with a wide gain range.
• Powerful treble, mids, and bass tone controls.
• Four memory positions to save and recall presets.
• Innovative expression control. Save any combination of settings for the “toe,” any different settings for the “heel,” and sweep all settings at once with an expression pedal.
• Frustration-free intuitive programming using just one toggle switch.
• MIDI control expands Kismet’s memory to 100 positions and can control any setting.
• EEPROM-type memory is retained when power is removed.
• Bulletproof relay-based true bypass.

Kismet is designed and assembled in the U.S. and will ship in February 2018 at a retail price of $249.99. Order direct at Ramble FX or through select retailers worldwide. All Ramble FX pedals have a five-year limited warranty.
