Freeze Sound Retainer
Capture a frozen moment and turn it into a tonally unique sonic foundation. The Freeze Sound Retainer delivers infinite sustain of any note or chord at the press of a momentary footswitch. Release the footswitch and you are again sample ready. Three selectable decay rates, including a latch mode, guarantee liquid, smooth tonal transitions. Hook the Freeze up with your favorite pedals for a sonic collage that will be unlike anything you have ever heard. Itís like adding an extra musician to the band.

Try this in the effects loop of our ARDX20 Analog delay!!!!
We can also add a soft touch switch for easier use, for our $40 min bench fee,
as in picture below. This is called the ARCADE MOD as it's an Arcade game switch. No more noisy CLICKING when you switch it. Normally the switches are all black.
We can also add a remote EXT jack for external control of the FREEZE pedal, using a momentary switch like a piano sustain pedal. This is seen at the bottom right on this pedal which also has the Arcade Mod switch: In 2019 they changed the internals of the pedal, so the Arcade switch will not fit centered. We move it to the left and it's centered under the first E in FREEZE. These also no longer have the "NANO" or "MADE IN USA" under the switch now. We can also add an EXPRESSION CONTROL jack to control the EFFECTS LEVEL knob with an expression pedal. But the expression pedal needs to be 50K to work right, which is an odd value, so we removed the option from this page. Also I don't think we can have both the EXP and EXT jacks if you get the ARCADE mod.
