LabVIEW based electric guitar effects pedals


 

A video from NIWeek 2008. Benjamin Cook really had fun building this electric guitar effects system based around NI hardware and LabVIEW.

This is a wireless audio processing project. A 550 MHz transmitter transmits FM modulated data to a 5600 down converter. It down converts the data to 25MHz. That gets sent to a 5640R IF-RIO card. The IF-RIO card has an FPGA. That’s where all the demodulation and audio processing happens which then gets sent out the sound card. You get very low latency audio response.

Hey, this is Michael Aivaliotis! Thanks for reading my post, listening to the podcast or watching the video on this page.

    Can this be done without any hardware? I mean using just the line in of a sound card to line out? or will that result in high latency?

    Sounds like line6 competition.

    I remember seeing this as NI Week. Ever since I’ve been looking for the code that was used to produce the effects. Will this code ever be posted anywhere?

    Can we have few mp3s of recorded music?
