Inspired by your favorite rodent based distortion, the Large Mouse Analog Plug-In captures all the snarl and spit of the legendary subway dwelling rodent and allows you to upgrade your Asabi with an entirely new voice!
The LARGE MOUSE allows for 4 different presets of clipping diodes which themselves drastically alter the tone and feel of the way the distortion clips.
Preset 1 - AMBER: Turbo Large Mouse. Two LED’s are used to symmetrically clip the top and bottom portions of your guitars waveform evenly. The LED’s allow MUCH higher headroom so your tone will stay more open and less compressed much like a vintage Marshall. This setting is perfect for punk rock!
Preset 2 - GREEN: Stock Large Mouse. Two symmetrical silicon diodes give the classic drive and compression that the original is known for.
Preset 3 – BLUE: Asymmetric High Gain. Three asymmetric diodes (two silicon and one LED) will clip the top and bottom portions of your guitars waveform differently resulting in a more complex and interesting tone. This sounds great when laying down aggressive rhythm parts!
Preset 4 - MAGENTA: Symmetric High Gain. Four symmetric silicon diodes will clip the top and bottom portions of your guitars waveform evenly which gives a more focused and direct tone.
To install the LARGE MOUSE plug-in, please perform the following steps:
Remove the back panel of the pedal using a Phillips screwdriver
Lift up on the sides of the plug-in that is currently installed until the plug-in lifts up and out.
Take the new plug-in and align the pins of the three headers into the header sockets and gently press into position. NOTE: The plug-in is keyed so that it cannot be installed backwards.
