Before you start connecting the Analog Drive to other equipment, make sure all units are switched off. 1. Plug the supplied power adapter to a power outlet and connect the small plug to the Power inlet of the Analog Drive unit. 2. Connect your guitar to the INPUT jack of the Analog Drive. 3. Connect the OUTPUT jack from the Analog Drive to your guitar amplifier. 4. Switch on your guitar amplifier. 4. SIGNAL FLOW The following illustration shows the general flow of audio through the Analog Drive and illustrates how the different components interact with each other. 4.1 AUDIO SIGNAL FLOW Bypass Input Buffer Effect Circuit Gain Equalizer Level Output 5. USER INTERFACE 5.1 PRESETS The Analog Drive has 100 user preset slots (00 — 99). When any control value changes from the preset, it is indicated by that the dot in the lower right corner of the display turns off. This dot (when lit) also indicates the current preset when you select what preset to load. When you save a preset, it is the current audible state that is saved. 12

****** Page 13 ****** LOADING A PRESET Method 1 1. Turn PRESET to select the desired preset. The display blinks to indicate that the preset is not yet loaded. 2. Press PRESET to load the selected preset. Method 2 1. Press [FOOTSWITCH LEFT] (decrease) or [FOOTSWITCH RIGHT] (increase) to select the desired preset. The slot decrement/increment can be done in steps of 10 by holding down either footswitch. The display blinks to indicate that the preset is not yet loaded. 2. Press [FOOTSWITCH BYPASS/SELECT] to load preset. N.B. If you wait for more than 30 seconds to load the new preset, the display stops blinking and returns to the active preset’s number. SAVING A PRESET 1. Press and hold PRESET for 2 seconds. The display first shows SA and then blinks to indicate that the preset is not yet saved. 2. Turn PRESET and select the preset slot to where you want to save the current sound settings. 3. Press PRESET to save. N.B. If you wait for more than 5 seconds to save the preset, the display stops blinking and returns to the active preset’s number. PRESET INDICATORS When a preset is selected, the recalled values of the parameters might not be the same as the knobs current physical position. As soon as a knob is turned, one of the LEDs indi- cates which way the knob should be turned to locate the position corresponding to the value set in the preset. When the knob is in the position that matches the stored value, both LEDs are lit for a short while and then turn off. N.B. Turning a knob does not change the parameter value until the knob position matches the preset’s stored value. 5.2 ACTIVE The Analog Drive must be active to affect the incoming sound. If the pedal is not active, then the effect is bypassed. Press [FOOTSWITCH BYPASS/SELECT] to toggle active on and off. The LED indicates if the effect is active or not. 13

****** Page 14 ****** 5.3 MANUAL MODE Toggle the MANUAL switch up to select Manual mode. The display and LEDs are turned off in Manual mode. In this mode, the pedal’s controls directly control their parameters. It is not possible to save, or load presets in this mode. If you want to save the sound you made in Manual mode, you must first exit Manual mode and then save it to a preset slot. 5.4 EFFECT CIRCUITS CLEAN BOOST A boost ranging from O to 20 dB, run at a high internal voltage, thus giving plenty of headroom. MID DRIVE Can be compared to the sound a well-known green stompbox. If more bass is needed, just increase the Low EQ setting. DIRTY DRIVE Really dirty and swampy. A gate-ish feel can be obtained at low Gain settings. Higher Gain settings result in an old school fuzzy sound. BIG DIST Adds quite a lot of distortion, but with an intact bass response. A reference would be a Marshall stack pushed to the max with a lot of power amp distortion. FOCUSED DIST Strong focus on the upper mids. An extended version of the mythological horse/man pedal, but with more flexibility. HARMONIC FUZZ Octave fuzz with a smooth feel. Based on a fuzz that is out of production. (Which one is a well-kept secret.) HIGH GAIN Clear sound with a lot of gain. Nice string separation, great sustain. THICK GAIN Adds loads of gain, more than a lot of preamps. Really crispy when palm muting the lower strings and using the EQ to add some top end. 5.5 GAIN GAIN sets the amount of incoming signal that is sent to the effect circuit. 5.6 EQ Each Character circuit comes with its tailor-made equalizer characteristics. LOW adjusts the amount of boost or cut of the EQ low frequencies. 14

****** Page 15 ****** MID FREQ adjusts the parametric EQ mid frequency. MID adjusts the amount of boost or cut of the EQ mid frequencies. HIGH adjusts the amount of boost or cut of the EQ high frequencies. 5.7 LEVEL LEVEL sets the pedal’s final output level. 5.8 EXPRESSION PEDAL/CV INPUT There are two jacks for connecting an expression pedal or Control Voltage signal source. The Exp Gain input adds more gain to the value of the preset/panel. The Exp Mid control input goes through the entire frequency range. 6. SETTINGS The Analog Drive has a number of settings that can customize the functions of the pedal. These set- tings are stored globally and are not part of the preset. 6.1 CHANGING THE SETTINGS 1. Press and hold [FOOTSWITCH LEFT] and [FOOTSWITCH RIGHT] for 2 seconds to enter the Set- up mode. The display briefly shows SU to indicate that you are in Setup Mode. The current setting is also briefly shown in the display for a second and is also indicated by two or three Circuit LEDs. The display then changes to show the chosen value of the setting. 2. Turn CIRCUIT SELECTOR to select setting. 3. Turn PRESET to change the value of the setting. 4. Press and hold [FOOTSWITCH BYPASS/SELECT] to save the settings and exit the setup mode. Press and hold [FOOTSWITCH LEFT] and [FOOTSWITCH RIGHT] for 2 seconds to exit the setup mode without saving any changes. 6.2 SETTINGS These are the settings and setting values of the Analog Drive.
