  • Name: Force
    Type: Freeze reverb (eternal reverb, microsampling reverb)
    Instruments: Guitar/Bass
    Short description: DARK SIDE AGRESSOR!


    Summary: Play a chord and push the footswitch: the “frozen” chord will create a wall of sound, over which you can play a solo. You can also use this pad-like sound in drone and similar genres of music.
    A very short music sample is recorded into the device’s memory and (as soon as the device is switched on) is looped, filtered and processed through high-feedback reverberation, resulting in a lush background pad sound.
    Very few devices can do the same, and none of them have such a small footprint as Force does. One more distinctive feature of the device is that Force samples the sound beforehand. You don’t have to wait for it to record the sample when you switch it on; the effect is applied instantly. Force constantly samples the incoming sound and starts working exactly when you need.

    Features:
    • Small and lightweight.
    • Latching and momentary bypass modes.
    • Clean and Octave down freeze modes.
    • This pedal has buffered bypass which doesn’t audibly distort or color the sound.
    • The dry signal volume is fixed at unity.
    • The freeze effect is, in fact, not eternal; it lasts 5-9 minutes, depending on the instrument’s attack and volume.


    Controls:
    1. IN — is a 1/4” mono jack input for the signal source.
    2. OUT — a 1/4” mono jack output to other effects or amps.
    3. MIX knob — determines the effect’s volume.
    4. MODE switch — chooses between momentary and latching mode. Force gets bypassed whenever you use the mode switch.
    5. LED — is on when frozen signal is playing. Blinks twice when patch is changed.
    6. Footswitch — turns the effect on. In momentary mode: press and hold for effect. In latching mode: press once to start freezing, press once more to override current sound; press twice to stop.
    7. Power In — iis the device’s power supply input. Use only 9V regulated power adapters. Current draw is 70 mA


    Additional information:
    • The toggle clearly shows the chosen bypass mode: momentary (UP), latching (DOWN). If you change the sound while holding down the footswitch, you’ll have to choose the proper bypass mode once again.
    • To change the patch (effect type), use the toggle while holding down the footswitch. In this case, UP selects regular freeze reverb, DOWN selects +octave-down freeze reverb. Changes are saved on footswitch release, the LED will flash twice if a different patch was selected. If the selected patch remains the same, the LED won’t flash and no changes will be made. The chosen patch is stored in the device’s memory and will remain there even if you switch the pedal off or experience a power shortage.
    • The “shadow” mode. To access this mode, press and hold down the footswitch, plug the power supply out of the pedal and plug it back in, then release the footswitch. The LED will start flashing. It is planned that in this mode you’ll be able to tweak the reverb’s attack and release time when engaging/disengaging the effect; at the moment, the “shadow” mode contains demos of the future pedals sounds. Only double-click bypass works in this mode. Disconnect power to exit this mode.
