If you’ve been following Effects Bay for any time, you may have seen a post or three about Flex Reaction. I’ve been a fan of this business for years. These guys make solid products, from their various loop switchers to their pedalboards. I’ve talked about their switchers in the past and absolutely love them. The main primary reason I dig their switchers – their programmable DIP switch handling for the loops. Love.. love … love it!
If you’re looking for true bypass looper, but also want to avoid digital programming and the hassle/headache that can come with those, this might be the guy you’re looking for.
Flex Reaction Compound 88 Programmable Loop Switcher
Today I wanted to talk about the Flex Reaction Compound 88 Programmable Loop Switcher. This is the big daddy. We’re talking 8 independent loops. Each footswitch has a 8 DIP switch interface assigning what loops you want to be associated with a particular footswitch or channel. It does NOT get any easier than that. Additionally, the Flex Reaction Compound switchers also has a buffered input, or you can use the unbuffered input as well.
Here is a break down of features for this unit:
8 True Bypass Loops (electromechanical relay switching)
8 Programmable Channels with “All OFF” in each switch
Programming each channel by using DIP switch
1 Non-Buffered input, 1 Buffered Input (High Quality Clean Buffer Circuit)
Red LED for Channel Status Indicator
Blue LED for Loop Status Indicator
Heavy Duty Footswitches
Gold Plated Relay and construction with High-Quality Components
Light Weight Aluminum Enclosure , Dimensions 457x56x40 mm or 18.00×2.20×1.57 Inch
9VDC 400 mA Center Negative 2.1mm. (Ac Adaptor Not included)
The Flex Reaction Compound 88 Programmable Loop Switcher is available for $319 on their website. The Compound 88 is available in Black or in limited White as what’s seen here.
