LiberaToe Pedal & Module
Despite living in the age of modern technologies that try to make a settlement 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, and 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 within the 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 that rarely are found in conventional pedals. Some of them adopt heterogeneous dual channel that provide two different effects, whereas others feature a homogeneous dual channel that 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 a sound effect is handled by analogue circuitry and only the signal routing function is controlled by the embedded software.
True Bypass: Equipped with a gold-clad relays to output the original signal faithfully and when in bypass.
Double Power: Both 9V and 18V are available for each purpose. 18V, generated 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 foot movement.
How to Switch Dual Channel
And so, how do you select between 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 and once powered. Push it again to return to bypass. Push & hold (rather than a short push) activates and switched to the red channel. A short push on the red channel also returns to bypass and another push & hold recalls the green channel. Liberatoe has established a world's first in pedal engineering - a single foot switch that supports two channels, with embedded software for signal routing control that is completely separate from the analog sound effects.
This is Stock mode:
To serve some players who may want an opposite or different switching behavior, channel mode is available. A short push switches between the channels while a push & hold engages/disengages the effects. Holding longer than 4-seconds will let you toggle between the two modes.
