Aphex Announces Facebook and Twitter Contests

app_androidupdate_300px 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.

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.

Winners will be selected at random, and announced on June 1, 2011.
