|Introduction to LiberaToe Pedal
Despite living in the era of technological evolution that even enable probes to land on Mars, one simply cannot give up analogue sound. In keeping the analogue based classic sound, we have incorporated the key advantages of digital technologies, such as flexibility and ease of control. Previously, achieving both was difficult because both the sound processing and the signal control were intended to be processed only in either fully analogue- or fully digital form.
LiberaToe combines these two qualities - previously were deemed mutually exclusive - boutique-level, high-quality audio and ease of operation thanks to the separation of the sound effects into analogue circuit and software-based signal control. As a result, LiberaToe maintains a decent sonic while achieving intuitive operability.
All of the LiberaToe pedals feature dual channels, which are rarely found in conventional pedals.
Some of them adopt heterogeneous dual channels which provide two different effects, the others feature homogeneous dual channels which have identical effect.
In addition to the A / B selection function, some pedals in the series offer a variety of uses, such as A > B(serial) or A // B(parallel).
Rail is fitted to protect the knob and toggle switch settings from foot movement.
It is equipped with a gold-clad relay to faithfully output the original sound as it is in bypass.
Both 9V and 18V are available for each purpose. 18V, which is made by boosting the 9V input, is rated up to 500mA current, unlike ordinary low-cost step-up devices with a limit of 10mA.
According to each purpose, different technologies are adopted so that sound processing is handled by analogue circuitry and only the signal routing function is controlled by the embedded software in MCU.
How to switch Dual Channels of the LiberaToe Pedal
So how do you choose between two channels as well as bypass with a single foot switch? A short press on the foot switch turns the green channel on. Press it again to return to bypass. Long press instead of short press activates red channel. Short press in this red channel also returns to bypass and long press returns to green channel again. In this way, a single foot switch that supports two channels is the world's first feature, with embedded software for control that is completely separate from analogue sound processing.
Foot Switch Operation
Short-press for on/off and long-press for channel switching is factory default for foot switch action. It will be available later on paid repair to change the switch behavior into short-press for channel switching and long-press for on/off.
|Press and release immediately to switch between on and bypass.||Press more than 0.4 sec ti switch between green and red channels.|
Features in Detail
Many guitar amplifiers have almost two or more channels built in, and their structure is high quality based on analogue circuitry. In the world of analogue effects, almost all products have supported only a single channel, for example of overdrive, only gain, tone, level. Though some products support two channels, separate channel select switch is added to incur inevitable increase of weight and volume.
This is because technically all processing and control has been implemented in analogue only or digitally only. As digital effectors process both sound and control in software, many functions can be implemented at a low cost. However, the unique ‘picking dynamics’ provided by analogue processing reproduces the feelings and technique of the performer as well, especially in the live scene. It is well known that digital devices are difficult to provide picking dynamics, are thus usually used in the recording.
The development of this new product was done by the global team with experts from a wide range of fields that required integrated technology, supported by hardware design while processing sound with analogue engineering and controlling signal routing with embedded software.
Internally, the embedded software, which is a digital technology, works, but the user experience is thoroughly pursued with analogues, so the intuitive usability of the knobs that are operated by hand and the familiar footing of the analogue devices that keep the tapping foot switch intact are also advantages in reducing fatigue as many things are going digitized.
Developers have dual channels in every effect they design to provide multichannel functionality like a tube amplifier, while adopting an analogue sound processing method that allows the player to enjoy picking sensitivity. In case of overdrive, gain 1 + tone 1 + level 1 operates in the green channel and gain 2 + tone 2 + level 2 operates in the red channel. Or in overdrive with TMB tone stack, for the most important middle control, a channel with a middle knob that can be adjusted and another channel that middle is fully fixed on are implemented.
'Dual Channel' is not only implemented on homogeneous effects but also on heterogeneous effects. By the development team carefully considering the number of cases in which each effector is used, for example such as using a separation or a combination of 60's vintage fuzz and WahWah, you can use the two-stage or three-stage toggle to set the desired combination into two channels.
Therefore, in addition to selecting between A / B channels(by selection), some pedals provide various uses such as A to B (in series) or A & B (mix) in the LiberaToe dual channel pedal series.
In order to make such a variety of sounds, circuits requiring high voltages and high currents have been developed, instead of using a low-current 9V power. Unlike low-cost devices that typically only provide 5~10mA by boosting 9V to 18V, all LiberaToe pedals are designed to utilize up to 500mA enough current for both 9V and 18V power. (To do this, use a power adapter with sufficient current capacity)
The LiberaToe Pedal implements 'True Bypass' equipped with a high quality gold-clad relay to bypass the original sound faithfully.
In addition, due to the nature of the pedals equipped with the control knobs, toggle switch and foot switch together, a rail is installed to separate the control compartment from the foot switch to prevent the control knobs or toggle switch from being accidentally changed when the foot switch is pressed.
Combination Examples of Dual Channel Pedals
|In general, when using one or more of overdrive, boost, and distortion, and using space-time effects such as delay and chorus, at least four pedals are configured, which normally requires extra equipment. Using only two pedals from the LiberaToe pedal family, MonkHawk, Luther or Blue Crow and Robofish, you can choose any combination between dry, boosted overdrive and/or distortion, in combination with chorus, tremolo and delay. The reason for this is that Robofish has a simple programmable loop that supports 3 loops and 2 channels. This configuration will cover almost all genres.
|Instead of Luther and MonkHawk, you can replace the higheror lower-gain LiberaToe pedals or replace the multi-effector Robofish with individual space-time LiberaToe pedals to cover different genres (jazz, thrash metal, etc.). As another example of a combination, Gnavatar will be able to combine Baron Ashura with the ability to parallelize existing pedals while providing advanced noise reduction and compressor combination. You can also add ProudAnus with built-in fuzz and envelope filters to create funky tones.
|The combination of Bass-specific Holy Belly equalizer/booster with Baron Ashura or ProudAnus on the front is great. And if you're using four of them with the addition of Gnavatar, bass-only overdrive Bentham, or BearAss with integrated fuzz and compressor, this analogue effects set will be the strongest combination for the bass.
|On existing pedal boards, you can add Brever to the end of the effect chain if you want to have reverb effects and the entire sound mastering as like in the studio. The reverb-only dual channel selection gives you the option of light reverb and deeper spatial reverberation in live, plus a variety of options for mastering effects alone or in combination with reverb, so that you can enjoy the benefits as like being supported by a studio engineer.
T1. Torpedo-1 Tremolo
Torpedo-1 Tremolo reproduces the vintage analogue tremolo tone of a 60's amp. As the speed, depth, and waveform controls can be dialled for each of the two channels independently, Torpedo-1 Tremolo provides real-time selection of various settings that conventional analogue tremolos have not been able to achieve to date.
In addition, the clean boost - which encompasses the vintage clean tone replicated from the tremolo tone - enables you to boost the spatial effector, and its inverter function can be utilized within the effector chain when a change of phase is desired. These boost and invert functions help boost the input signal naturally rather than overdriving the amplifier's drive channel, and their rear-end positioning within the effector chain allows the optimal application of Torpedo-1 Tremolo.
Torpedo-1 Tremolo is recommend for those who want to play on two channels with different level and waveform as well as speed and depth based on vintage tremolo tones, for those who need versatile functions like tremolo, small boost or phase shifter, for those who want to create a variety of tones on a small pedal board.
* Torpedo-1 Tremolo matches well with a buffer in its immediate rear position, or an input buffer-equipped effector.
* For optimal use of the Invert function, position either a buffer or a low impedance output effector in front of the
Torpedo-1 Tremolo unit.
|① Wave1,2 controls define shape of waveform, more like triangle form clockwise, more like square form counter-clockwise
② Depth1,2: going deeper clockwise
③ Speed1,2: getting faster clockwise
④ Level1,2: louder clockwise
T3. Copernicus Chorus
Copernicus Chorus is a modulation effector that brings the classic 80's chorus tone to life. With all the adjustable elements in the chorus, you can mix the original and modulated notes as you like, or tweak the tone of the end-mixed notes to cover them from dim to sharp tones.
Copernicus Chorus is also equipped with a level to compensate for unwanted volume fluctuations that often occur when a dirty series is placed at the front, maintaining a uniform volume level. Like other products in the LiberaToe series, it supports dual channels, allowing you to choose different speeds and rumbles. The indicator LED flashes according to the speed and supports a wide range of modulation effects, from vibrato to deeper chorus.
For those who want a warm vintage tone of the classic chorus based on a transparent bypass with less coloration, but want to play on two channels with different modulation speeds and depths, and for those who want to make more precise chorus sound by adjusting mix and level as well as tone in addition, for those who want to create a wide variety of tones on a small pedal board, Copernicus chorus is recommended.
|① Mix: more wet signal clockwise
② Tone: more edge of wet signal clockwise
