The Chill Switch Momentary Line Selector is a new, utilitarian Electro-Harmonix pedal. In Kill Mode, the Chill Switch can be used to provide instant muting. It can also be used to create interesting stutter effects by turning the instrument’s signal abruptly on and off for hard rhythmic in/out transitions.
In Line Selector Mode, the scope of the pedal’s use is only limited by the player’s creative vision. It can, for example, be used to quickly switch in the effects loop, introducing a burst of distortion, analog delay induced feedback or ring modulation. It can also be tapped in time with what is being played to bring effects in and out of the signal path rhythmically. This is especially interesting when one of those effects is a delay with tap tempo. The many and varied uses of this pedal are an open invitation for the modern player who wishes to explore the world of unorthodox sound creation and manipulation.
Versatility Review by TheDarkKnight95
This pedal is a great momentary switcher. It allows you to select an external FX rig whether it be additional FX pedals such as delays or choruses etc. or it could be linked in to your computer via an audio interface to software like Native Instruments Guitar Rig. Anything with a standard 1/4 inch input and output can be used. If no FX are plugged in it acts just like a killswitch (think Tom Morello). Overall I am super happy and would reccommend to all my guitar friends, also outstanding EHX build quality as expected. (Posted on 29/05/2012)
