Electro-Harmonix Downsizes Its Micro Q-Tron to Nano Leave a comment

Electro-Harmonix has unveiled the latest addition to its roster of Q-Tron envelope filters—the Nano Q-Tron, a more compact iteration of its Micro Q-Tron that adds a dedicated volume control.

Consisting of four control knobs, the Nano Q-Tron allows you to set the overall output level (Vol), adjust peak filter bandwidth (Q), decide how hard the envelope is pushed by your playing dynamics (Drive), and choose between low-pass, bandpass, and high-pass filters (LP/BP/HP Mode Switch).

Aside from the tinier chassis and additional Vol dial, the Nano Q-Tron is pretty much akin to the rest of the Q-Tron lineup. You can yield quacking filter sweeps from mild to intense.

“Here’s how it works: The Nano Q-Tron responds to the user’s playing style and dynamics. The volume of the input signal it receives (also called the envelope) controls the cutoff or center frequency of a swept filter. This allows the Nano Q-Tron to create tone-altering effects ranging from subtle to dynamic, auto-wah to ultra-funky. It’s all about how you play and it’s super interactive,” Electro-Harmonix wrote.

Other notable features include true bypass switching and 9V battery or power supply operation.

The Electro-Harmonix Nano Q-Tron lists for $106.40.
