Last week I saw a video by EHX on their brand new pedal called the ‘Freeze‘. This is a pretty interesting pedal where you can grab the signal and hold it in various manners. It’s not a looper but almost as a tone generator of sorts to provide undertone while you’re playing.. just like backing keyboard. There are three modes: fast, slow and latch on how the pedal releases the note. Fast/slow is pretty self explanatory, but latch will hold until you release the footswitch.
Here is the official description of the Electro-Harmonix Freeze:
Capture a frozen moment and turn it into a tonally unique sonic foundation. The Freeze Sound Retainer delivers infinite sustain of any note or chord at the press of a momentary footswitch. Release the footswitch and you are again sample ready. Three selectable decay rates, including a latch mode, guarantee liquid, smooth tonal transitions. Hook the Freeze up with your favorite pedals for a sonic collage that will be unlike anything you have ever heard. It’s like adding an extra musician to the band. Specs: – Real time sample capture with perfect looping – Latch mode for infinite sustain at the touch of a momentary switch – Fast decay mode – Slow decay mode – Latch mode for infinite sustain of sample capture – Smooth tonal transitions between captures – Optional 9.6DC 200 power supply – Handles input gains from pedal boards
Here is a video by EHX. Mike Matthews cracks me up.
