Decibel Eleven Looper Expander press release

Stevenson Ranch, CA (January 20, 2014) -- Decibel Eleven introduces a new Loop Expander that easily increases guitar rig effects switching capabilities, announced Tony Garcia, Decibel Eleven president.

The Decibel Eleven Loop Expander is a true bypass audio switcher that adds programmable effects loop switching to any MIDI controlled setup. Use it to add loop switching to any existing system with a simple MIDI controller, or utilize it to expand the number of true bypass loops with a DB-11 Pedal Palette or Switch Dr. For larger rigs, connect multiple Loop Expanders in series to create additional loops.

DB-11 Loop Expander works with MIDI Program Changes or MIDI Control Changes. Features include four relay true bypass audio loops, optional fourth loop as amp switch, switchable Class A discrete input buffer and a 3-year warranty. The compact size mounts conveniently underneath pedals or on a rack shelf.

Decibel Eleven is a division of MYE Entertainment Inc., a Southern California electronics design and manufacturing company with state-of-the-art production facilities in the USA and abroad.

The Decibel Eleven Loop Switcher street price is $189.
