Aphex Announces Facebook And Twitter Contests


Aphex has announced a pair of contests on Facebook and Twitter.
Anyone who "Likes" Aphex on Facebook between now and midnight PDT on May 31, 2011 will be registered into a drawing to win Aphex gear.
And anyone who follows Aphextweets on Twitter during the same time period will also be registered into a separate drawing to win Aphex gear.
A total of three lucky winners will receive prizes including an Aphex Exciter, Punch Factory and Xciter pedals. Here's how Aphex describes them:
  • The Aphex Exciter provides two independent channels of the company's Aural Exciter® and Optical Big Bottom® in a compact, single rack space design. Since its introduction in 1975, close to a million Exciters have made their mark in professional audio, broadcast, live and commercial applications.
  • The newly redesigned Aphex pedals were introduced at this year's NAMM Show in January, turning heads and creating a buzz throughout the show that culminated with the presentation of Premier Guitar Magazine's prestigious Editors' Choice Award. Both pedals deliver the studio quality performance that has made Aphex a standard among audio and broadcast professionals for more than three decades.
    • The Xciter integrates Aphex's legendary Aural Exciter and Optical Big Bottom technologies into a rugged, compact, stage-worthy design, adding life and presence to any instrument by enhancing musical harmonics, spaciousness, depth and detail.
    • The Punch Factory takes Aphex's acclaimed optical compression technology - normally only found in expensive rack-mounted studio gear - and puts it at your feet and into your live performance, delivering the most transparent, uncolored compression available at any price.
Pricing and Availability:
Free entry. Winners will be selected at random, and announced on June 1, 2011. More information:
