CHILLSWITCH

Momentary Line Selector

- KILL SETUP -

In this setup, the CHILLSWITCH allows you to quickly switch between mute and unmute by pressing the footswitch, resulting in a hard rhythmic tremolo effect.

INPUT JACK - Connect to the output of your instrument or another effects pedal

SEND JACK - Disconnect

RETURN JACK - Disconnect

AMP JACK - Connect to the input of your amplifier or another effects pedal

- LINE SELECTOR SETUP -

In this setup, the CHILLSWITCH allows you to quickly switch between an effects loop and your dry signal by pressing the footswitch.  Depending on the effects in the loop, it could trigger a burst of distortion, or perhaps a foot-controlled delay feedback… the possibilities are endless!



INPUT JACK - Connect to the output of your instrument or another effects pedal

SEND JACK - Connect to the input of your effects loop

RETURN JACK - Connect to the output of your effects loop

AMP JACK - Connect to the input of your amplifier or another effects pedal


- LED INDICATOR -
In either setup, the LED reflects the signal present at the AMP jack.

LED OFF - The AMP jack outputs the original INPUT signal

LED ON - The AMP jack outputs the signal from the effects loop (or no signal, in Kill Setup)


- “ENGAGE” ROTARY SWITCH -
The ENGAGE rotary switch affects how the footswitch controls the AMP output.

- KILL SETUP -
ENGAGE: THRU


While footswitch is pressed, the INPUT signal travels directly to the AMP output


While footswitch is released, the AMP output is muted

- LINE SELECTOR SETUP -
ENGAGE: THRU


While footswitch is pressed, the INPUT signal travels directly to the AMP output*


While footswitch is released, the INPUT signal travels through the FX Loop

*See “SEND” ROTARY SWITCH section

- KILL SETUP -
ENGAGE: FX


While footswitch is pressed, the AMP output is muted


While footswitch is released, the INPUT signal travels directly to the AMP output

- LINE SELECTOR SETUP -
ENGAGE: FX


While footswitch is pressed, the INPUT signal travels through the FX Loop


While footswitch is released, the INPUT signal travels directly to the AMP output*

*See “SEND” ROTARY SWITCH section


- “SEND” ROTARY SWITCH -
The SEND rotary switch allows you to choose between routing the INPUT signal to the SEND jack at all times (ON position) or only when the FX Loop is active (FSW position). The setting of the SEND switch is ignored when using the KILL setup.

SEND: FSW

The INPUT signal only travels to the SEND jack when the FX Loop is activated.

Use this setting with an envelope-triggered effect (auto-wah): The CHILLSWITCH will reset the envelope sweep with each press of the footswitch

SEND: ON

The INPUT signal always travels to the Send jack.

Use this setting with a delay effect:The CHILLSWITCH will continuously send the INPUT signal to the delay


- POWER -

Power from the internal 9-volt battery is activated by plugging into the INPUT jack. The input cable should
be removed when the unit is not in use to avoid running down the battery.
The barrel connector on the front of the CHILLSWITCH is for a 9-volt battery eliminator capable of delivering
at least 25 mA of current. The optional 9V power supply from Electro-Harmonix is 9.6DC-200BI (same as used by Boss® & Ibanez®) 9.6 Volts DC 200mA.
The power supply must have a barrel connector with center negative. The unit’s battery may be left in or taken out when the eliminator is in use.
The actual current draw of the CHILLSWITCH is 12.5 mA.

To change the 9-volt battery, remove the 4 screws on the bottom of the CHILLSWITCH. Once the screws are removed, take off the bottom plate and
change the battery. Please do not touch the circuit board or you risk damaging a component.
