Copilot Fx Portal is a mixer / blender pedal / fx loop, giving the user the option to mix / blend the signal inside the loop (send / return jacks on top) with the signal coming in (dry), both signal paths have Their respective volume knobs (vol for the dry and loop for the fx loop), the range knob controls the amount of mix, at 0 (7:00) only the dry will be present, increasing the knob clockwise will start adding more signal from the loop until it gets full wet.
The range can also be controlled via a TRS expression pedal (it won’t matter the pot value) or 0-5v CV signals, adding functionality and range to other pedals and sonic possibilities.
The 2 right toggles, allows syncing the dry and/or loop to the range knob/exp. The options are as follows.
- Dry toggle down / Loop toggle down: both signals will be in parallel and won’t react to the changes of the range knob/exp.
- Dry toggle up/ Loop toggle down: only the dry signal will react to the changes of the range knob/exp, while the loop signal will be intact.
- Dry toggle down / Loop toggle up: only the loop signal will react to the changes of the range knob/exp, while the dry signal will be intact.
- Dry toggle up / Loop toggle up: both signals will react to the changes of the range knob/exp, allowing to fade in/out the signals.
The left toggle is to change the phase polarity of the loop signal
The volume in the fx loop is post loop, so it won’t clip/saturate the units inside. You can also only connect to the return jack on the loop, in case you want to mix/add radio signals, samplers, noise/bleep boxes / other instruments or want to add the unused stereo jacks on some pedals.
This Kinkilin has EXP/CV control jacks for delay time, feedback, noise, rate, modulation amount and mix, the extra toggles are to assign both the dry and delay voice to the mix cv. In the video demo of it, the ehx 8 steps is feeding a bandwidth that is controlling the feedback and the delay time, while a broadcast is into the mix cv jack. All the cv inputs are independent so you can use only one at a given time, 2 or 3, all of them or none.
Polypus supreme is a tremolo pedal with a sequencer to control the rate or tap ratios, it features an all analog signal path and a tap tempo multi wave LFO. The sequencer has 5 steps (like having 5 rate/ratios presets), and the length can be set to 3, 4 or 5 steps via a toggle, the sequence rate is set by the rate of your tap, there are 2 modes of operations: Triggered mode, the sequencer advance to the next step every time you press the trigger footswitch (middle footswitch) or auto mode, where the sequence is always running. The LFO rate can be tap tempo or rate (like traditional speed knobs).
- LFO and Sequencer CV outs to sync other devices (you can use both in bypass).
- Reset toggle, allows resetting the sequence to step 1 when you are in bypass (to start always from step 1) or not (in case you want to use lfo and sequencer with other devices while in bypass).
- 3/4/5 sequence length.
- Hi and Lo eq knobs.
Another variation of the Broadcast, this one has 3 independent outputs (2 TRS expression outs and 1 CV out, each one has its own range knob), it also comes with Expression/CV input to control the rate/ratio or manually sweep the outs, invert toggle to have the 2 exp out be synced or unsynced. The extra footswitch changes the output from lfo to the exp/cv in for the 2 expression outs, while the cv out has a toggle.
