About This Listing

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. Its like adding an extra
musician to the band.

At the simple push of a button, the FREEZE will allow you to sustain
individual notes and chords indefinitely. With three different modes of
operation, its easy to set up just the right type of sound retention
for the club, the studio or your bedroom.


EFFECT LEVEL  Controls the volume of the sustained sound. The output always contains the dry signal at its original volume

MODE SWITCH  Selects between one of three effect modes: FAST, SLOW,
and LATCH. See the MODE DESCRIPTIONS section for more detail.

STATUS LED  The LED is on while the effect is sounding or fading
out. When the LED is off, the effect is completely silenced and the
output contains only the pure dry signal.

INPUT JACK  Connect the output of your instrument or another effects
pedal to this jack. The input impedance presented at the INPUT jack is
2.2 M ohm.

AMP JACK  Connect the AMP jack to your amplifier input or the input
of another effects pedal. The output impedance at this jack is 470 ohm.

9V Power Jack  Plug the output of the supplied AC Adapter into this
jack located at the top of the FREEZE. The FREEZEs current requirement
is 140mA at 9VDC. The polarity of the power jack is center-negative.
The FREEZE accepts most Boss style AC Adapters.


FAST When the footswitch is triggered, the FREEZE will immediately
sustain the current input.  The sound will be sustained until the
footswitch is released, at which point the effect will immediately

SLOW  When the footswitch is triggered, the FREEZE will sustain the
current input, fading in the effect. The sound will be sustained until
the footswitch is released, at which point the effect will fade out
slowly. The speed of the fade can be set during slow-speed
initialization. See below.

LATCH When the footswitch is triggered, the FREEZE will immediately
sustain your current sound.  The sound will continue to be sustained
upon releasing the footswitch.???í When the footswitch is triggered again,
the FREEZE will immediately replace the sustained sound with the new
current input. A double-tap on the footswitch will silence the effect.


The speed at which the effect fades in/out in SLOW mode can be adjusted by following these steps:

1) Unplug the power jack
2) Hold down the footswitch
3) While holding down the footswitch, plug in the power jack (LED will blink)
4) Move the mode switch to the preferred setting based on this table:

Switch Position Fade-in Speed Fade-out Speed

Up:  400ms
Middle: 200ms - 1.0 sec
Down:  800ms - 3.2 sec

5) Release the footswitch, the FREEZE is ready for normal operation.

The FREEZE will retain the chosen fade speed through power cycles and will not change until reinitialized.
