Quintessence features a MASH footswitch giving you a powerful expressive tool without taking up any extra pedalboard real estate. By default the MASH switch has been assigned to bend your harmonized note up to the next interval within the scale but in TonePrint mode, you can assign MASH to control just about any aspect of the pedal including custom scale steps - both above and below the original harmony. This not only makes the Quintessence much more versatile as you can switch between two different intervals mid-song without having to fiddle with knobs, but it also lets you do fluid pedal steel bends worthy of the greasiest Nashville honky-tonks out there.
If you don't feel like using one of the seven preset diatonic modes commonly used, the Custom scale mode lets you load in whichever flavor of tonality you want your harmonies to follow. When Quintessence is not in TonePrint mode, the Custom mode is set for Locrian. Using the three TonePrint slots however, you can set it to a wealth of different custom scales. Feeling major pentatonic or harmonic minor today? Have at it, Hoss!
Of course, you get three TonePrint slots to get you safely through your set list, allowing you to customize your own harmonies with one or two extra voices on top of your dry signal in any way you want. The free TonePrint editor gives you access to a wealth of tweakable parameters to get you exactly the harmonies you want. Instead of spending your time, trying to find your own Dickey Betts or Marty Friedman for your band - Quintessence has your back and is always in tune.
