Rear panel terminal connectors:
- Midi interface
- stereo input at +4 / -20dB
- stereo outputs
- bypass pedalswitch input ( FS-5U FS-5L)
- pedal control input (FV300L+PCS-33)
- pedal expression input (EV5).

ac Power supply is external PSU with AC-AC (not DC!) 14V 700mA - original model is Boss BRC-100.

 

 

edit TECH the core is based on a HITACHI CPU hd6413002F which handles an internal sample rate of 44 kHz at 18 bits resolution, frequency responses from 5 Hz to 55 Khz.
Relative ADC/DAC is a TDA1309H
TECH: the DSP can processes the 2 channels individually or paired depending on the effects.

edit STRUCTURE
a single patch is composed by 5 activable effects or EFFECTORS categories:
1- RSS 3D
2- modulation
3- reverb
4- delay
5- equalizer





edit
1- RSS is a 3 dimensional audio field process that "moves" a sound on the the 3-axes dimension (left-right + above-below). RSS Sound movement can be set using various parameter like azimuth, elevation, pan and start point: moves the sound horizontally along a perimeter of a theoretical sphere.
There are 4 RSS models: panner 3D, single 3D, dual 3D and quad.

MODULATION section features 10 special modes:
- flanger (stereo or mono) features exponential or special Ofw1 modulators
- chorus (stereo or mono)

- space chorus: based on vintage Dimension D Sdd320
- phaser (stereo or mono) 4 or 8 stages
- pitch-shifter: 2 or 4 voices
- harmonizer: 4 or 2 voices
- rotary speaker simulation
Many modulation editable parameters like phase, pan, LFO (triangle or sinewave shape).

edit REVERB DSP generates 5 reverberation models: hall, room, garage, plate and non-linear-
Other reverberation parameters including room size, damp, cutoff density, gate time, feedback and more.

edit EQUALIZER
is a 3-bands parametric EQ (peaking or shelving) and 11 parameters.




editALGORITHM EFFECTORS
can be chained in 19 algorithms signal paths order including serial/ parallel - note that some effectors cannot be summed for dsp limit.
