HeadRush Unveils Gigboard Multi-Effect Processor

HeadRush has unveiled its new Gigboard, a more compact version of its popular PedalBoard multi-effect unit. The new unit features the same quad-core processor, exclusive Eleven HD Expanded DSP software and full-color 7-inch touchscreen as its larger predecessor, delivering the same power but with added portability.

The core of the Gigboard is the ultra-intuitive touchscreen interface, with drag-and-drop capabilities to instantly create and edit rigs, mixing and matching amplifiers, cabinets, microphones and effects with speed and accuracy. In addition to the extensive variety of onboard models, users can also load custom and third-party effects and voices.

In fact, other than offering fewer inputs, the Gigboard boasts all the features available in the Pedalboard, including a looper with 20 minutes of record time, footswitches with color LEDs, a hands-free mode and a road-ready steel chassis.
