Decibel Eleven Debuts Switch Witch MIDI Controller / Loop Switcher

Spellbinding command over your entire guitar rig.

Stevenson Ranch, CA (July 10, 2013) -- Decibel Eleven introduces the new Switch Witch MIDI Controller / Loop Switcher at the Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, TN, July 11-13, announced Tony Garcia, Decibel Eleven president.

The Decibel Eleven Switch Witch is a versatile and simple to program master controller that combines fully programmable MIDI control, true-bypass audio effects loops, and amp channel switching capabilities. The compact yet powerful Switch Witch design is easy to use and meets all of your most basic needs – from sending a single program change to controlling an entire rig.

Decibel Eleven Switch Witch features include 128 presets capable of sending a variety of MIDI program changes, controls and messages with expression pedal MIDI continuous controller data; up to 4 true bypass pedal effects loops; up to 3 switch control functions for amp channel switching; optional analog discrete Class A input buffer for retaining top end sparkle and preventing pickup loading.

Activated at any time, the Switch Witch direct mode provides instant access to individual switches for the effect loops and control switching. An optional “global” default preset can be accessed from any bank at any time and presets can be recalled remotely by MIDI for syncing multiple switchers/controllers.

The Decibel Eleven Switch Witch list price is $425 with street price of $299.
