Each channel features its own volume and active 3-Band EQ controls. The volume can be adjusted over a wide range from -8dB to +16dB, and each band of the active equalizer has a boost/cut range of +/-15dB for a precise adjustment of bass, middle and treble. In my unique circuit, the unwanted interaction between the individual EQ-bands is eliminated and each control does not interfere with the other. Via an internal switch, you can choose to have the “BBQ-XL” operate in true bypass or buffered bypass mode. An LED indicates the activated buffer mode as “Buffered Bypass”.
This pedal is equipped with my unique “MagTraB” switching technology:
Inside the button a magnet is integrated which position is measured by a sensor on the circuit board. If the button is now moved, e.g. it is pressed downwards, the position of the magnet will also change. The sensor measures this change without any mechanical contact to the button and the information is send via a micro-controller to a solid state relay, which then does the actual audio signal switching.
The advantages of “MagTraB” footswitches:
“MagTraB” buttons are as good as indestructible!
“MagTraB” delivers an almost infinite number of switching cycles – many, many millions!
No annoying, mechanical switch clicks!
Instead, the “MagTraB” push-buttons switch very smooth and quiet!
