Acouswitch Jr

The Acouswitch Junior is a compact multi-functional Preamp/DI for musicians who perform on stage with electric as well as with acoustic guitars and wish to use the same effects for both with a single pedal board. With two separately controllable high impedance inputs it becomes the control center for your electric/acoustic setup. The Acouswitch Jr sports programmable foot switches allowing the user to decide on the signal routing for the inputs, outputs and to control the loop functions.

Features

title

Programmable Input Switcher

The Acouswitch Junior offers two high impedance inputs with discrete circuit design. If you connect two instruments to input A and B, the A/B footswitch allows you to toggle between the two. If no cable is connected to Input B, the signal from Input A can be routed to channel A or channel B. Where and how your signal is routed depends on the selected operating mode. In classic mode the selected input is always routed to both outputs, in electro/acoustic mode the outputs are are alternately muted depending on the selected instrument input. In teachers mode you can toggle between between input A+B and input B only.

High -end preamp with-4 band EQ specifically designed for acoustic instruments

Channel A of the Acouswitch Junior features a high-end preamp and an easy and intuitive to use 4-band EQ designed for acoustic instruments and featuring bass, low-mids, high-mids and treble controls.

title

Programmable Loop/Boost/Mute Switcher

The Acouswitch Junior features a second programmable footswitch that allows you to either control the FX Loop, to engage the Clean Booster, to engage the FX Loop and the clean booster together or to mute the Acouswitch Junior outputs.

title

Clean Booster

The Acouswitch Junior features a second gain stage with volume control. Depending on the operating mode chosen for the programmable Loop/Boost/Mute switch, this gain stage is either active all the time or controlled by the foot switch. Controlled by the foot switch it serves either as a clean booster in the FX Loop or as a standalone clean booster. Continuously engaged it allows to adapt the output to all possible situations including driving a power amp, a powered monitor or an in-ear system.

title

DI box

The Acouswitch Junior can be used to send an output signal directly to a mixing console or a recording unit. The high-quality components and features of the Acouswitch IQ DI (high-end preamp, ground switch, pre / post signal processing switch) in combination with major parts of the Lehle True Sound technology make it an excellent DI box, be it in a live setting or in a recording situation.
