I use a magnetic pickup to run my guitar signal through an Electro-Harmonix Super Ego granular synthesizer. It works great but there are times when I want to add a Hammond Organ B9-like "click"--not a dry guitar note--to the very beginning edge of a guitar note to be able to show where the beat is a bit better. The Electro Harmonix C9 pedal has this feature but I'd rather save myself a couple of hundred bucks.
For folks who don't know how a super-ego pedal works, you can mix the dry and effected signal in the output. What I'm looking for is a way to emphasize without a tone the initial attack of the guitar. Sort of like a Tic Tac Bass, only done electronically.
