What is the Aristocrat?

The Aristocrat is a guitar pedal. It is DSP (Digital Signal Processing)-based and programmable. The Aristocrat is based on the Audio Codec Shield from Open Music Labs and the Maple from Leaf Labs. It is called the Aristocrat because it can go anywhere and do anything.

It means you can download, modify, write and share programs to make audio effects for your guitar and other electric instruments (C64 bass?)
