MOD Duo open-source multi-effects pedal
« on: January 15, 2017, 11:07:07 AM »


Berlin's MOD Devices has taken a new approach to multi-effects processors with the Duo, an open-source pedal that invites users to make their own combinations of effects, synths, amp sims, tools and more.

These new sounds are created using the company's plugins (which will be continually expanded, says MOD), and the pedal's web-based interface allows entire pedalboards to be shared and downloaded with fellow users.

Other features include:

    Two independent outputs with balanced 1/4' TRS jacks and volume control
    Headphone output with independent digital volume control
    Relay based True Bypass circuit
    Cirrus Logic low noise audio codec
    CPU: Dual core ARM A7 1.0 GHz, 1GB RAM and 4GB Flash Storage
    2 knobs with LCD screens and 2 foot switches with colour LEDs
    I/O Connections: MIDI In and MIDI Out (DIN 5 pins), Control-Chain RJ-45, USB Host (2.0 Standard A-type supporting USB Wi-Fi and USB MIDI) and USB Device (2.0 Standard B-type supporting USB Ethernet adapter)






Hey,

Iím Gianfranco Ceccolini, the CEO and Founder of MOD Devices.

If you are a guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, vocalist or if you play any other instrument and you're into effects, synths, loops or any other audio processing devices you're at the right place.

Like many other guitar players, I've always used pedals or multi-effects units. Each time I had to pack and set my pedal effects before a gig or rehearsal I had the same thought:

"Why can't we have a device that works like a multi effect, has the ease-of-use of pedals but can be fully customized as a computer?!"

I started to look around but at that time, in 2008, nothing like that was available.

So I decided to do what most engineers do: build it myself ;-)

That's basically how it all started, then came an awesome Kickstarter campaign, then more friends joined the team and the community and after a few years here it is: the mighty MOD Duo.

Tried and tested by hundreds of guitarists, bassists, keyboardists, vocalists and even accordeonists. who use it at home, at their studio, on stage and even when they go on holiday.
