    Pitchshifter pedal for +-1 semitone?

    Are there any pitchshifter pedals that will play 1 fret below or above what you play? I'm kinda out of the loop on them. I want it for fucked up dissonant shit but without the 2nd guitarist.

    I know I can do it with my HD500, but that'd be a bit overkill for your needs Maybe the Line6 M-whateversthesmallest has it?

    Line 6 M5. The "Shift" will do what you want.

    You may have better luck with harmonizers than with pitch shifters, as pitch shifters tend to mean 100% wet signal. A harmonizer like the Mooer one would be perfect for this. It can do 1 semitone in either direction and is super small and cheap. I'm not sure if it has a mix level though, it may be a pitch shifter as well. Worst case scenario buy a blend knob in a box to run with your pitch shifter.

    The Whammy IV in Deep Detune does that. Sounds pretty sick. You can also set it to harmonize octave up/down mode and set the pedal to right where you want it. It makes some really evil sounding noises and you get a Whammy pedal. Used ones for $150 all day long.
