Eventide has announced a new studio-quality microphone pre amp plus effects loop in a compact stompbox form factor. They tell us that the Mixing Link fits neatly on a pedal board or in a backpack, making the wide world of guitar stompbox effects available to vocalists. Shipping in December, the Mixing Link will be available from authorized Eventide dealers and at Eventide.com.
Tony Agnello of Eventide and Manifold Labs, had this to say, "Our pedals were designed for guitar but most of the effects really work well for voice. The Mixing Link makes it rather easy for singers to connect to most guitar stompboxes and, with its high quality mic pre, it's at home both on stage and in the studio"

Looks interesting - I would love a comparison review with a pigtronix keymaster http://www.pigtronix.com/products/keymaster/

The Keymaster doesn't have a real mic preamp so isn't capable of achieving the same goal.
