GUITARIST SAM KEARNEY OPENS FOR OASIS WITH ALBERTA CROSS AND EVENTIDE’S TIMEFACTOR

“I have the ability to control the rates of the left and right channels separately, which gives the TimeFactor a huge advantage over other pedals.? -Kearney

Emerging band Alberta Cross is currently touring the U.K. with Oasis and lead guitarist, Sam Kearney, has selected Eventide’s TimeFactor for its wide range of effects and delay capabilities. In addition to the current tour, Kearney also applied the TimeFactor to the band’s debut full-length album for release in April 2009, on Ark Recordings. The band’s previously released hits are critically acclaimed and include “Low Man? that was featured as the closing song to an episode of Showtime’s ‘Californication’.

“I came across the TimeFactor a year ago and it has filled a void in my playing,? Kearney states. “I have seen a big improvement and the stereo-delays are very helpful. I have the ability to control the rates of the left and right channels separately, which gives the TimeFactor a huge advantage over other pedals. The straight forward interface plus the wide variety of sounds puts this pedal head and shoulders above the others.?

TimeFactor features 10 stereo or mono delay effects and gives musicians, as well as engineers, the power to adapt to any music style. The provided effects include: digital delay, vintage delay, tape echo, mod delay, ducked delay, band delay, filter pong, multi-tap, reverse, and looper. TimeFactor offers real-time control with the expression pedal and instant Preset access. The plug-and-play expression pedal control works with wet/dry mixes or any combination of parameters.

“I love the capabilities of the TimeFactor and the pedal offers users more options than a traditional delay pedal,? explained Kearney. “This product is perfect for live performances as the guitarist can balance the sound and lock in with the drummer. The capabilities of the TimeFactor help the band to be in sync at all times, which is a tremendous advantage.?
