Thank you once again Bill. I want a Freeze so much now it hurts!

I loved your demo of the Stereo Electric Mistress too. In fact, I now have your settings marked on my pedal!

Any chance you could demo more single pedals? Your videos are inspirational and help to show what a pedal can really do.

The Freeze has a high quality buffered bypass.

This is the type of pedal where true bypass would be nearly impossible to do because of the nature of the momentary switching, the speed of switching and the type of effect it is where you want the DRY level to remain constant in both effect and bypass mode.

The Freeze is full bandwidth with 24 bit resolution and a sample rate equal to 66 kHz.

I LOVE that sound.
Its like a big bowl of melted chocolate!
The slight mod on the delay really made it stand apart from the dry signal.
That Deluxe Memory Boy is a very cool pedal.
The analog delay can be a very ,very cool thing.
The insert feature on the pedal is brilliant.
Thanks for your post!
Bill

Wow!  When my Rhodes player and I first saw the freeze pedal, the first thing we thought was “that’s got to sound cool before a tremolo” -  even cooler than we thought!

I’m going to have to try one of these out when the local shop gets one;  it seems like some of the coolest uses for this pedal are going to be a little more difficult to coordinate with the freeze function on my HOG.  (At least when doing the guitar/pedal/singing thing live.)

Hi, just got the pedal a couple of days ago, works brilliantly for organ-type sounds (though I wish there was a way to kill the dry signal when playing chords on the latch setting!)

I just wanted a little more clarification as to the bypass — is the buffer analog or DSP? cheers guys!

Hi, Bill!

I just wanted to let you know that your video alone convinced me to buy the Freeze pedal. Brilliant playing!
