Complexity: Simple

Complexity: Simple

Interface:  3/5
The pitchfork certainly fits a lot of functionality into a small box. With a simple interval switching knob and a directional switch, you can have any of its intervals sound up or down or both together. The problems arise when you are on stage and can have a hard time seeing the position of the switch and whether or not the latch setting is engaged.

Versatility: 3/5
The Pitchfork is quite versatile for its size. Its many intervals and its ability to switch the orientation of those intervals provides the user with a lot of interesting and usable sounds. It is very close to being a harmonizer. You can get even more functionality with an expression pedal. However, you cannot have an octave and another voice on at the same time, which is slightly disappointing.

Tonal reproduction: 3.5/5
Overall , the tonal qualities are good. The octave up sounds slightly inferior to other EHX products, but the octave down sound is comparable to the Nano and Micro POGs.

Tracking speed: 3.5/5
Slightly above average tracking

Live application: 3.5/5
This is a solid live stompbox. The controls are easy enough to manipulate, making presets almost unnecessary. It produces its intended effects very well and can be a wonderful addition to a board in need of some pitch manipulation
