MOD Devices Launches the MOD Duo

An open-source multi-effects pedal that provides access to plugins while delivering high-quality audio.

Berlin, Germany (December 7, 2016) -- 2016)—MOD Devices has released a new audio processor that combines unlimited plugins, rock-solid hardware, smart software and a thriving community. Designated the MOD Duo, the user-friendly audio processor is a revolutionary, open-source, multi-effects pedal that provides guitarists access to effects plugins while delivering high-quality audio.

The MOD Duo allows musicians to make infinite combinations of effects, synths, amp simulations, tools and much more with hundreds of current plugins. New plugins are released on a regular basis and can be downloaded with just one click via our web-based user interface. Pedalboards can also be downloaded and shared among the growing community of MOD users. MOD Duo’s light, compact and robust die-cast aluminum casing make it easy to carry and can ultimately replace heavy rigs. Once the MOD Duo is customized to the guitarist, the stage-ready processor can be transported to rehearsals and/or concerts.

“The MOD Duo processor comes loaded with audiophile components and allows extra footswitches, expression pedals or MIDI controllers to be connected. It can be used by all kinds of instruments, with up to three simultaneously connected to the same device. In addition, the user-friendly graphical interface can configure new effect chains by the simple use of a browser,” said Gianfranco Ceccolini, founder of MOD Devices.

  • Two independent inputs with 1/4' TS jacks and digitally controlled analog multi-stage pre-amplification
