EHX pedals used in the movie Prometheus

Posted 11/28/2012



Prometheus is a 2012 science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, etc.), Described by some as an Alien prequel, it stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron.

Sound mixer, Ron Bartlett, talks about the soundtrack that he and fellow re-recording mixer, Doug Hemphill, worked on.

“When I learned that we were going to mix Prometheus” for Ridley Scott, I was very excited,” adds Bartlett. “I wanted to tie in some of the original aesthetics from the first Alien film. We studied the voice processing of the android character in Alien and re-created that sound very closely. It involved a lot of fun experimenting with various vintage guitar pedals — and some new ones as well.” (source Motion Picture Editors Guild)

One of the pedals was the EHX Ring Thing Single Sideband modulator and another was the Micro POG, Polyphonic Octave Generator. Here are a couple of photos from the Prometheus Blu-Ray Documentary.
