Eventide Update PitchFactor OS

If you saw our review of the Eventide ModFactor (link below) - one of the range of stompboxes from Eventide, then news of improvements to the OS of the sister pedal the PitchFactor will no doubt be of interest. The new OS (v2.3) adds new scales for the Diatonic and Quadravox effects. Users can now select from the following: [MAJ] - Major
[min] - Minor
[DOR] - Dorian
[PHRG] - Phrygian
[LYD] - Lydian
[MLYD] - Mixolydian
[LOC] – Locrian
[Hmin] - Harmonic Minor

Also added is the ability to lock Expression Pedal programming, the ability to more easily select from the 100 supplied user presets using the select knob, a wider range of Tuner calibration, and the ability to control PitchFlex via MIDI continuous controller messages.
