Capture a frozen moment and turn it into a tonally unique sonic foundation. The Electro Harmonix 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. It’s like adding an extra musician to the band.

— CONTROLS —

EFFECT LEVEL — Controls the volume of the sustained sound. The output always contains the dry signal at its original volume
MODE SWITCH — Selects between one of three effect modes: FAST, SLOW, and LATCH. See the MODE DESCRIPTIONS section for more detail.
STATUS LED — The LED is on while the effect is sounding or fading out. When the LED is off, the effect is completely silenced and the output contains only the pure dry signal.
INPUT JACK — Connect the output of your instrument or another effects pedal to this jack. The input impedance presented at the INPUT jack is 2.2 M ohm.
AMP JACK — Connect the AMP jack to your amplifier input or the input of another effects pedal. The output impedance at this jack is 470 ohm.
9V Power Jack — Plug the output of the supplied AC Adapter into this jack located at the top of the FREEZE. The FREEZE’s current requirement is 140mA at 9VDC.  The polarity of the power jack is center-negative.

The FREEZE accepts most Boss style AC Adapters.

— MODE DESCRIPTIONS —
FAST — When the footswitch is triggered, the FREEZE will immediately sustain the current input.  The sound will be sustained until the footswitch is released, at which point the effect will immediately disengage.
SLOW — When the footswitch is triggered, the FREEZE will sustain the current input, fading in the effect.  The sound will be sustained until the footswitch is released, at which point the effect will fade out slowly.  The speed of the fade can be set during slow-speed initialization. See below.
LATCH — When the footswitch is triggered, the FREEZE will immediately sustain your current sound.  The sound will continue to be sustained upon releasing the footswitch.  When the footswitch is triggered again, the FREEZE will immediately replace the sustained sound with the new current input.  A double-tap on the footswitch will silence the effect.
