Product Description

Acoustic - but not as you know it!

You may appreciate that part of the beauty of acoustic playing is not having to worry about additional equipment - no chunky pedal board, no amp to lug around or set up, it's just you and your 6 strings. Acoustic playing has, however, taken on a new form in recent years. Artists such as Newton Faulkner, Ed Sheeran and Jon Gomm have popularised the use of effects and loop pedals with electro-acoustic guitars in search of more complex textures and abstract sounds.

Practical, Comprehensive, Intuitive

T-Rex have therefore decided to create an all-in-one solution for the more adventurous acoustic player. The Acoustic Soulmate combines the functionality of a multi-effects unit, a top-quality preamp / DI box, a loop pedal and a chromatic tuner. This pedal's extensive set of features will have you tuned up, dialled into a warm, full-bodied tone, smothered in effects and weaving intricate loops all at the same time - within minutes!

Here's what T-Rex have to say about the Acoustic Soulmate

All-In-One Acoustic Pedal Board

Having some cool effects at your disposal when playing your acoustic instrument can highlight your performance and playing, but the effects should not cover up the instrument´s acoustic properties/sound and should act as “enhancers” of what´s already there. With a good pickup system, what most players look for is subtle changes, because essentially, they want to hear the instrument, only louder.

More importantly, we need to be able to use the instrument in various environments that are quite hostile for an instrument that is designed to be played acoustically. If signal phase, impedance and feedback mean anything to you, you already know that amplifying acoustic instruments often involves patching in various electronic gadgets that you´d never use in your electric setup.

The T-Rex Soulmate Acoustic merges a collection of top notch effects with some very useful tools for acoustic playing because in our world, you need both for optimal sound. Really, it should be called “Toolbox Acoustic” because it´s almost as much a handful of “little helpers” as it is a multi effects unit for all stringed acoustic instruments with a microphone/pickup system installed.

Effects:

Compressor, modulation, 3-band parametric EQ, delay (with tap tempo), reverb (with shimmer), boost and a +5 min. looper, all laid out in a conventional and logical fashion. The effects have been designed to highlight, strengthen and widen the sound – it´s all about subtle,”icing on the cake” effects that allows the instrument´s tonality to shine through.

Features:

  • Input preamp with gain control, signal phase and impedance switches, expression pedal inputs for foot control of master volume and shimmer, ultra-fast tuner, automatic feedback kill switch and dual stereo outputs (1/4” and XLR with ground lift) are indespensable tools for controlling the volume, patching into various mixers/amps/P.A.´s and battling feedback or noise.
  • At soundchecks, rehearsals or mid-gig, the T-Rex Soulmate Acoustic puts you in control of getting those notes all the way to the speaker cone with no fuzz, external boxes or involment of stage techs/soundguys.

I have used quite a few acoustic DI's over the years, and this pedal stands up there with the best. My go-to solution has been LR Baggs products, but I can happily say that this is as good as any of their products that I've used. Where LR Baggs decided to release separate pedals for effects, T-Rex made an all-in-one acoustic guitar solution that has the most requested features built in. As with most acoustic DIs, starting with a great guitar and great pickup really help get the most out of the T-Rex Soulmate Acoustic. The compressor is fantastic, and might be the most useful feature for live playing. It really helps dial down harder strumming and helps elevate fingerpicking parts without having to hit any footswitch. The modulation is fine, but I would use sparingly. The delay has warm trails, making me think it is based on an analog style delay. Tap tempo is a fantastic feature. The reverb is very nice, even though I'll probably never use the shimmer function. The EQ is powerful with it's parametric controls, and I've been able to dial in some nice tone. The boost is simply clean, which is great. Other solutions I've used colored my tone too much, so I appreciate the boost in this. The built in tuner is indeed fast and seems to be accurate in my use, so no issues here. I've only used the auto-notch feedback kill switch at home in my studio as I use in-ear monitors when playing live. It seems to work as advertised, and would definitely be a helpful feature in certain situations. The built in looper is basic in function but nice to have. I will echo some reviews and say that I believe the looper raises the volume slightly upon repeating the loop, which is odd, but this can be compensated with either turning your pickup volume down prior to looping or using the boost for your lines you want to stand out. Overall, I'm extremely happy with my purchase. Being from the US, it's crazy how much money you save ordering from the UK vs buying US direct. So if any US customers are reading this, buy the Soulmate Acoustic from Anderton's and save some hard-earned cash!

Love the tones and effects. This is a very versatile piece of kit. It is specific to acoustic guitars and it's great but I've also tried with my Telecaster and really like the results. Only had it for a couple of weeks so can't really comment on durability but it seems solid and well made.
