    This is a really cool unit. I started with a balanced MiniDSP 2x4 board and had Mike Putnam put it in a medium sized pedal case.

    -Volume knob
    -Footswitch (hold down to bypass, hold down to re-engage...not really as useful as I'd hoped--I'd suggest removing and plugging the footswitch hole. The bypass lets no sound through so not terribly useful.)
    -2 balanced TRS inputs
    -4 balanced TRS outputs
    -Line level or Instrument level switch for inputs
    -mini-USB connector
    -12v power input
    -NOTE: Requires a TRS cable for the output channels. TRS to XLR is fine, TRS to TS is fine. A TS cable will not engage.

    Included is an isolated 12v power supply that will run it with plenty of headroom. I have had mixed results running this thing with less than isolated psu's -- my SupaCharger makes it hum like the dickens. With this 12v included power supply there is ZERO noise.

    Features -- you can do all kinds of DSP tricks. The plugin I bought for it and will include is the 2-way Advanced.

    It has many bands of parametric eq, high and low passes of all kinds - see here:

    This is a super cool unit. I used it for pre-baked eq curves and a butterworth high pass, and for biamping.

    Possible uses:
    -Splitting your signal up to route all over a pedalboard. Send highs to one chain, lows to another chain, full range to another chain, then blend them back together with a mixer pedal (e.g. FEA Labs)
    -Just use it as a nice high pass filter
    -Program a voicing for sending to limited amps (e.g. add a 1/2 octave boost at 150hz to a fender tone stack amp).
    -Stick it inside a rack case behind a power amp as a professional up to 4-way crossover without taking up a rack space.
    -The sky's the limit, really.

    This thing cost me well over 200 bucks. I'm looking to get out of it for 200 shipped.

    It's just a plain aluminum box - I'll send you some pics on request.

    I'll not sneer at offers of course!

    also, tradebait:
    -Markbass compressore or FEA labs Opti-fet
    -Electric guitars (interested in a MIM telecaster but open:)
    -A 3012LF
    -Neat preamp pedals

    I'm interested in all kinds of stuff though so don't hesitate to hit me up!
