Compact, easy switching solutions to keep your tone intact.
Not everyone needs a fully programmable one-touch switching system, however we all want to sound better. There comes a point where using multiple effects pedals chained together can introduce issues, including signal loss and tone-suck. QuarterMaster puts each of your pedals in its own separate true-bypass loop so it stays out of your signal path when you're not using it. The result is clearer tone with more integrity, preserving the sound of your individual pedals and also your favourite guitars and amps.
The QuarterMaster QMX also has a very clever ace up its sleeve…
Each loop has a push button next to the loop return that gives you the option to turn any standard loop into a Flip Flop loop.
In standard mode, loops turn on and off independently: you turn them on and off with the switch, in any combination.
Flip Flop mode enables an element of one-touch switching. If you have two loops in Flip Flop mode, for example, selecting one will turn the other off… while all your standard-mode loops remain stackable, on/off as usual.
This can be especially useful if you use a number of different drive pedals, for example, that you never use together. With loops in Flip Flop mode, selecting one turns all the other Flip Flop loops off. Your standard loops remain as they are.
Aside from the tone preserving and practicality benefits of QuarterMaster, users have been telling us that it's a great way to keep our beloved pedals (and their switches) in great condition. No need to worry about QMX in that respect – our own-design OptoKick footswitches are incredibly tough and reliable.
Even if you're running a small board, QuarterMaster will make your playing life easier and your tone better!
