To safeguard the tone of user instruments, considerately the Patch Box features a real BYPASS and an unique preamp with incredibly tall headroom clearance along with a pair of fully-buffered outputs. Custom-engineered soft-limiting wiring built into the preamp brings in personality without undesirable noise at greater gain settings. Said preamp has double, buffered outputs to permit intricate signal directing, however for covering a single modulation or sound source into 2 destinations, the patchable signal splitter is an excellent remedy. Likewise referred to as a MULTIPLE, the signal splitter has one input and 2 outputs, permitting any signal to be transmitted to 2 destinations.
Twin, assignable expression pedal INPUTS permit the Patch Box to conveniently integrate third-party expression pedals anywhere into the signal path to enable for real-time foot command of any kind of voltage-controllable specification or split the signal from the foot controller to regulate two parameters simultaneously. Twin, assignable A/B foot switches– SWITCH 1 as well as SWITCH 2– increase signal routing choices. Perfect for usage as on/off switches or to turn between 2 signals, the foot switches could be patched up to enable/disable individual modules or route sound and control voltages. Attempt patching an modulation source, such as an LFO or outside expression pedal, with the foot switch to make it possible for or disable the modualtion while playing. Spot the outputs of two FX into the foot switches to bounce between results. With 2 independent, patchable foot switches to play with, there are plenty of choices for real-time signal routing. The last phase of the Patch Box signal path is a master OUTPUT volume control. Readjust the output signal level to associate with a large range of gadgets.
