This pedal is equipped with our 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:
MapTraB 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 soundless!
How to change the power-on default setting:
The factory power-on default setting is “output 1=on” and “output 2=mute”. You can easily change this default setting by holding down the following MagTraB buttons for a second during powering-on the pedal. The next time the pedal is powered on, the newly programmed presetting is recalled:
a) The “1/2” button changes between output “1” or “2” being active after power-on.
b) The “1+2” button changes between “1 + 2= on” or “1 or 2 = on”. The latter setting depends on step a).
c) Holding down the two “1/2” and “1+2” buttons at the same time during Xroads power-up allows you to programm the pedal to start in the “Mute state”. Repeat this procedure if you want to leave the “Mute-power-up-state” again.
