LiberaToe Pedal & Module
Despite living in the age of modern technologies that enable probes to land on Mars, one simply cannot give up analogue sounds. In keeping the analogue based genuineness, we also have incorporated the advantages of digital technologies, such as flexibility, ease of control. Previously, achieving both was difficult because both the sound processing and the signal control were intended to be done in either fully analogue- or fully digital form.
LiberaToe combines these two qualities - previously were deemed mutually exclusive - boutique-level, high-quality audio and ease of operation thanks to the separation of the sound effects of analogue circuit and software-based signal control. As a result, LiberaToe maintains a decent sonic quality while achieving intuitive operation.
All of the LiberaToe pedals feature dual channel, which are rarely found in conventional pedals. Some of them adopt heterogeneous dual channel which provide two different effects, the others feature homogeneous dual channel which have identical effects.
Dual Channel: In addition to the A / B (selection), some pedals offer a variety of uses, such as A-> B (in series) or A // B (in parallel).
Analog effect: According to each purpose, different technologies were adopted so that sound effect is handled by analogue circuitry and only the signal routing function is controlled by the embedded software.
True Bypass: It is equipped with a gold-clad relay to faithfully output the original signal as it is in bypass.
Double Power: Both 9V and 18V are available for each purpose. 18V, which is made by boosting the 9V input, is rated up to 500mA current, unlike ordinary low-cost step-up devices having a limit of 10mA.
Guard rail: Rail is fitted to protect the knobs and toggle switches from the foot movement.
How to Switch Dual Channel
So how do you select between the two channels as well as go back to bypass, with a single foot switch? A short push on the foot switch turns the green channel on after power is applied. Push it again to return to bypass. Push & hold instead of short push activates red channel instead of green channel. Short push on the red channel also returns to bypass and another push & hold recalls the green channel. A single foot switch that supports two channels is the world's first feature, with embedded software for signal routing control that is completely separate from analog sound effects. This is Stock mode.
To serve some players who may want opposite switching behavior, another one, Channel mode has been prepared. That is to say, a short push switches between the channels while push & hold engages/disengages the effects. Anytime longer hold for more than 4 secs will let you toggle between the two modes.
