The other day I came across a very nice demo of the Electro-Harmonix Freeze Pedal. This pedal has really become a popular pedal and I’m definitely seeing it more and more on boards these days. The Electro-Harmonix Freeze pedal allows you capture and latch on to a note to all you to play on top of it. There are 4 basic controls on the Electro-Harmonix Freeze pedal – Fast, Slow and Latch via toggle and effect level. The freeze modes give you some great options.
Fast – acts as a momentary footswitch. When the switch is engaged, it will grab that note, and as soon as the switch is released, the sustained note is released
Slow – similar to Fast but allows for fade in and fade out of the sustained note.
Latch – latch will lock a note. Activating the footswitch will catch the note and you can walk away. Click the switch again, it will grab the next note it can find. You’ll need to double tap the switch to deactivate the effect
Effect Level – how load the sustained signal is.

Right now on Amazon there is a nice bundle deal for the Electro-Harmonix Freeze. You get the Electro-Harmonix Freeze pedal for $121.50, which is a good price, but you also get – 2 FREE Strukture 6″ Patch Cables and 2 FREE Strukture 18.6′ Instrument Cables. Nice way to get a couple of spare cables for free.
