Metatron Sample-Hold Filter

The Metatron is a project I've been working on for years but never had time to complete. In the video I am using a nearly completed version of the most recent prototype. The pedal is based on the Maestro Filter Sample/Hold pedal which has been discontinued years ago. While sonically they may be similar, the signal path is 100% original and in no way a copy of the Maestro. You can expect modern amenities such as true bypass, 9V power (no worries about dual batteries or 18V adapters as found on the original and clones of the original), possibly a blend control to tame the novelty aspect of the pedal, and so on. Email to be put on an unofficial mailing list regarding this specific pedal.

MIDI Mouse jack relocation

Here a second pair of MIDI and power jacks were installed. This allows for every square inch of pedalboard real estate to be used efficiently without needing to change the orientation of the pedal.
