Product Description

The Electro-Harmonix RTG Random Tone Generator is a reissue of a Electro-Harmonix synth guitar effects pedal from the 1980s and features a more than octave range, speed control, and glide (portamento) option. A single synthesizer voice randomly generates tones across more than four octaves. Rate knob controls the speed at which the random tones are generated. The Random Tone Generator pedal can be used together with a ring modulator or vocoder.

Portamento is also known as glissando or glide where if you play one note after another the pitch changes gradually at a predetermined rate from the first pitch to the second, gliding from one note to the next.


  • Rate knob controls the speed at which the random tones are generated
  • Glide (portamento) switch adds a glide between pitches
  • 1/4-inch output jack
  • A footswitch turns the RTG on or off
  • LED status indicator
  • Standard 9-Volt power supply or 9-Volt battery powered

  • Effect Type: others
  • Construction: Analog
  • Mono / Stereo: Mono Out
  • Controls: Rate
  • Switches: Glide
  • True Bypass: Yes
  • Special Features: check Specifications
  • Included in delivery: Mains adaptor (optional)

Waste of money. It is not random. There is a you tube video where 2 are started at the same time.You can get much better things from
non mainstream manufacturers like electro faustus. I can make this useful to an extent by adding a lot of effects which include a pitch shifter
but that defeats the object. Even if you do not buy a drone pedal that is better you can do much better than this by using an lfo to generate pitch cycles in any hard or soft synth.
This may be the biggest waste of money along with buddha machines. It is definitely NOT worth buying.

I enjoy the pedal but it only has an output and no input. I have to either play with it by itself or not at all. I need another pedal for it to play through for it to be a factor in my pedal chain. I love the sounds it comes out with and the price is brilliant, I just require a channel switcher pedal for it to be relevant in my pedalboard.

Re-issue Of An EHX Classic 18 Mar. 2013
By Mark Showalter - Published on Amazon.com
I had basically the same thing on a synth I owned back in the early 80's. When I saw this gadget on the EHX website I had to give it a try. It's much more usefull with FX after it as the notes are rather test-tone sounding. Definitely fun running a mod pedal like a flanger & then into a delay &/or reverb. My only wish is that the rate knob should be a tempo setting & with that the ability to select note values which would make this a lot more fun. Then, a chromatic or diatonic switch along with a key selector................

Fun toy 3 Nov. 2013
By David Brymer - Published on Amazon.com
It is a whole lot of fun, but it is meant to compliment your existing setup. Out of the box it is a one trick pony. A basic envelope and longer note lengths would put this up to a 4. Different waveforms and a filter would be a 5.

By Andrew Swartz - Published on Amazon.com

This is an "instrument" on to itself. Only an output jack. You can't process instruments through this device. If 8-bit video game music like, random tones are your thing then this should work for you. There is a speed control to accelerate the tones being produced. A glide switch is also included to add a small bit of tonal variety to the device's output. Results are not very musical but you can generate a sequencer like output of random tones. 9 volt battery for power or AC adapter purchased separately. A little awkward removing four screws to put in a new battery but, that's what you've got.
Random Tone Generator? Yup! 26 May 2014
By Monte Bairos - Published on Amazon.com

This effect was a big deal for about 30 seconds back in the early 80s. Subsequently it has limited appeal today unless you're running 70s/80s party-show band like I am. Great price, great effect (as long as you know what you're buying before you lay down your money), I'd do it again.
