Boutique pedal brand EC Pedals are crowd funding a new campaign via Indiegogo to launch the world's first modular pedal switcher. The SuperSwitcher 2 has been designed to work with guitar, bass and any applications that require smart loop routing.
The SuperSwitcher 2 has been made using the very best parts and components the company could source, including high quality, military-grade aluminum chassis and parts from Alpha switches, Neutrik jacks, Bourns, Omron Relays, Davies USA made knobs, Microchip MCUs and more.
(From company website): The SuperSwitcher 2 is a programmable switching system for guitar, bass and any applications that require smart loop routing.
The unit includes the most advanced features built for a switcher inside a compact design enclosure, allowing the player to have, for the first time ever, a smart programmable device that can be placed in almost any size pedalboard and include all the features players need:
For the first time ever, we managed to build a smart modular design, allowing the players to order exactly what they want and have their own custom switcher without paying $2000 for it.
The modular design is built from 2 types of modules - mandatory modules that come with any switcher, and optional modules. The default setup of modules we choose includes all the features that we feel are the best combination for most players - these are the specs for our standard SuperSwitcher 2:
Module Options For Custom Ordering
If you choose the custom module order you will have some options to choose and change from our default setup:
Playing It Live Modes and Presets
The advanced MCU processor inside the switcher allows you to have 99 banks with 5 presets in each bank. Each preset can include any combination of turning on certain loops, switching amp channels and sending midi commands-all in one click!
The switcher also has Manual Mode which allows you to turn on a couple of pedals inside any presets. For example, set switches 1-4 in bank A as presets, and switch 5 as a manual switch for loop 8 (let's say a delay pedal). Now you can kick the delay pedal in and out with switch 5 within any of the 1-4 presets!
Another mode we have is the Silly Mode, which cancels all presets and makes the switcher act as a standard true bypass looper (switch 1 will turn loop 1 on, etc.).
The MCU also allows wireless features, USB connectivity, iPhone control via Bluetooth and many more advanced features***
*** These features will be available only if we reach a specific amount of funding - see IF WE REACH section.
