see the manufacturer's website, it is detailed. She obviously but compressor and clean boost distortion (germanium). Ability to blend very useful and output volume.
The settings are simple, it is not always easy to find the desired sound quickly because it is super transparent, complies with all of the signal without browning. I could find my happiness quickly bypassing, snapping etc. And it is precisely the bypassing it sorely lacking! After the tastes and colors etc but I do not regret it at all and would not seek to change. It comes with a power supply. Feel free to go on youtube now that I confirm that the videos are representative.


Already a little attention before. It comes with an explanation sheet and some suggested settings but when you pedal was used to seek and find. I use it at the beginning of string with the guitar (Vigier Excalibur Original - Marceau 8 string guitars NG) and before a Rockbox Boiling Point OD to enter a Rocktron Hush Super C and in the entrance to a Laney IRT Studio. In the clear (10-20% of my use) it is remarkable, the palette is great and he had "only one" knob on the compression is not at all a drawback. With distortion it is phenomenal. No effect of pump, clean boost is very significant as the blend and volume that allows to combine perfectly. All spring magnified. Once bypassed one feels a severe lack is surprising because in seeking the right adjustments at the beginning I wondered if it contributed, it's subtle but unstoppable!


The audio quality is excellent. No breath added, no pumping, no alteration of sensation or other disadvantage.


I use it for one week, on show at the time but it makes me feel like my greatest Rockbox he arrived home it said. The price is more than okay in the end. I knew this kind integrated POD etc or even in VST (among other waves, very good), but no further testing Pedal effect. First try, I'm sure I do it again this choice. I do not yet use the grind (distortion) but the few trials have surprised me especially the blend allows again to expand the possibilities.
