Audio Effects and pedals are a critical part of how a musician develops their sound signature sound. Effects are used to alter any sound using various parameters that can be fine tuned to create a desired tone. Commonly used effects are reverb, delay, equalization (EQ), compression, overdrive, distortion and more. As technology continues to advance, musicians are becoming even more creative in shaping their tone by using different combinations of effects with their instruments.
Our Patch Bays fit (5) 1/4" jacks in the side slot of any of our parts, and allow you to patch them however you like. Use the jacks as inputs and/or outputs of your board. Link separate boards together. Add a pedal in to try it out in different spots of your signal chain before adding it to your board... the function is incredible and options are endless!
Noble Preamp DI
When you're playing Bass guitar you want to use tubes to get the best sound possible. Especially when you are playing your instrument directly into a mixer or audio interface. The beauty about tubes is that they distort gradually with low-order harmonics, which are perfect musical intervals. The second harmonic is an octave, the third harmonic is a fifth above the octave, the fourth harmonic is a second octave, etc. This is the reason tubes sound so good, and you will notice it. Their subtle distortion provides the natural harmonics lacking in electronic instruments, and restores the dimension and feel of your bass as it was intended to be heard.

Habit is a delay with a memory. It stores everything you play for later, so you can revisit and reuse sounds from the past: Gather up loops, design echo patterns, and harmonize with yourself from two minutes ago. It’s an effect that can be turned into an instrument on a whim, an evolving paint-splatter of everything you do. Or it could just be a fun echo.

Front Tray 16
The Front Tray 16 is designed specifically for mounting small switcher and loop pedals such as the OneControl Xenagama or OneControl Black Loop to the front of your board, while keeping it at ground level. It also works as a lower tier for standard sized pedals.
Front Tray 20
The Front Tray 20 is designed specifically for mounting larger switcher pedals such as the GigRig G3 to the front of your board, while keeping it at ground level. It can also be used for other pedals that you toggle on/off frequently and want to keep low to the ground for easy access.
The Adapter Plate is designed to mount 2 front/rear parts together without the use of a Long style part. In other words, if you have a Long style part with front/rear parts on one end, use 1 adapter plate on the unmounted side for added stability. If no Long style parts are used in your setup, use 2 adapter plates; 1 on each side, to hold 2 front/rear parts together. For more detail, refer to our Support page for a video on how/when to use adapter plates.
