By using an AC Adaptor, you can play without being concerned about how much battery power you have left. * Use only the specified AC adaptor (PSA series), and connect it to an AC outlet of the correct voltage. Do not use any other AC adaptor, since this may cause malfunction. * If the AC adaptor is connected while power is on, the power supply is drawn from the AC adaptor. * We recommend that you keep batteries installed in the unit even though you’ll be powering it with the AC adaptor. That way, you’ll be able to continue a performance even if the cord of the AC adaptor gets accidently disconnected from the unit. This indicator shows whether the effect is on or off, and also doubles as the battery check indicator. The indicator lights when the effect is on. * If you’re powering the unit with a battery and the CHECK indicator goes dim—or doesn’t light at all—when you try to turn the effect on, the battery is near depletion and should be replaced. “Changing the Battery” These output jacks can be connected to an amplifier or another effects unit. Use the A (MONO) jack when you want to use mono output. * The output will differ depending on the settings for the [MODE] knob and [SHIFT] knob. “Description of Each Mode” Name O O O 10 INPUT jack EXP jack Pedal switch Thumbscrew [MODE} knob [KEY] knob (TALL TIME] knob) [SHIFTI knob [BALANCE] knob TIME] knob) Description of Each Mode HARMONY Adds effect-processed sound (maximum of two sounds) to the input sound, thus creating three-voice harmonies. * Use only for single notes, not chords. Using a tuner to make sure your instruments are properly tuned. Tune after setting the reference pitch A4 to 440 Hz. MODE o BALANCE SHIFT HARMONY KEY minor 1 Using the [KEY] knob and [MODE] knob (Major, minor), select the key you’re going to perform in. 2. Using the [SHIFT] knob, select the pitch for the harmon ies. DETUNE Adds sound that has been shifted only slightly to the input sound. This can be used both for single notes and chords. * In this mode, the [KEY] knob has no effect. BALANCE SHIFT 00 DIR EFX HARMONY MODE b r.’lajnr KEY Explanation This jack accepts signals coming from a guitar or other musical instrument, or another effects unit. * The INPUT jack doubles as the power switch. Power to the unit is turned on when you plug into the INPUT jack; the power is turned off when the cable is unplugged. To prevent unnecessary battery consumption, be sure to disconnect the plug from the INPUT jack when not using the effects unit. Connect an expression pedal (sold separately) here. Depressing the pedal changes the amount of pitch shift. Pitch shifting is activated when you step on the pedal. When you release your foot from the pedal (minimum value) pitch changes become invalid. * Use only the specified expression pedal (FV-500H, FV-500L, EV-30, and Roland EV-5; sold separately). By connecting any other expression pedals, you risk causing malfunction and/or damage to the unit. * Set the Minimum Volume of the expression pedal to the minimum value (O). If not set to the minimum value, things won’t work correctly. Pressing this switch will turn the effect on/off. When this screw is loosened, the pedal will open, allowing you to change the battery. “Changing the Battery” Used to switch among the HARMONY (Major, minor), PITCH SHIFTER, DETUNE, and S-BEND modes. UDescription of Each Mode” When in the HARMONY (Major, minor) mode Sets the key to play in when using the HARMONY (Major, minor) mode. * If the key for the song being performed is set incorrectly, the harmonies that are produced may not be at the right pitch. When in the S-BEND mode This adjusts the amount of time it is to take for the pitch to transition from the set pitch back to the original pitch (the FALL time). When in the HARMONY (Major, minor) mode Sets the pitch for the harmonies. When in the PITCH SHIFTER/DETUNE/S-BEND modes Sets the amount of pitch shifting. This Adjusts the output balance between the direct sound and the effect sound. When in the S-BEND mode It adjusts the amount of time it is to take to transition to the set pitch (the RISE time). Precautions When Connecting • To prevent malfunction and equipment failure, always turn down the volume, and turn off all the units before making any connections. Before connecting or disconnecting any patch cords, be sure all the volume controls in your system are set to minimum. • Once everything is properly connected, be sure to follow the procedure below to turn on their power. If you tum on equipment in the wrong order, you risk causing malfunction or equipment failure. When powering up: Turn on the power to your guitar amp last. When powering down: Turn off the power to your guitar amp first. • This unit is equipped with a protection circuit. A brief interval (a few seconds) after power up is required before the unit will operate normally. Changing the Battery I.
