Dual Freeze

I've had a Freeze pedal on my board for a while, and decided it was time for another. On top of that, I've got a Pitch Fork that I'd like to get on the board as well. So the plan was to put the guts of two Freeze pedals into one enclosure that fits into some spare space on the board, and replace the existing Freeze with the Pitch Fork.

It doesn't need footswitches - the controller has two opto-isolated outputs for that. I only ever use it in 'fast' mode, so I don't need the switch either.

I started by removing the sockets, switch, pot and LED from the PCBs:

The box in the middle is a Hammond 1590BSBK - a deeper version of the standard enclosure that should accommodate two PCBs.

Some planning:

Some drilling and filing:

Some wiring:

The output of the first Freeze and the input of the second go to sockets so that the Pitch Fork can be put between them in the chain.


And on the board:

  2. wow very cool! really impressed by the whole setup. currently rehousing a freeze pedal too- hadn't even thought of using two, especially with a pitch shifter between em!
