How do I change the bypass mode on Brig?

From the factory, with the rear I/O Mode Selector set to mono, Brig is set for True Bypass as the default.  There are several benefits to setting Brig to Buffered Bypass mode:

  • Preserves the high frequency response of your guitar signal through your pedal chain and long cable runs.
  • Helps maintain signal levels when  the pedal is both bypassed and engaged when there is an impedance mismatch between the pedals’ output and the device it is connected to.
  • If there is DC offset in the audio signal, it helps eliminate popping in the audio when engaging and bypassing the pedal.

To change the bypass mode on Brig:

  • Press and hold the footswitch for at least 2 seconds while connecting power to Brig. Once the LED flashes, release the footswitch.
  • Toggle the VOICE switch to choose between TRUE BYPASS or BUFFERED BYPASS modes. The LED will change color to indicate the current status as you toggle the switch.
    • TRUE BYPASS: GREEN (default, LEFT or MIDDLE switch position)
    • BUFFERED BYPASS: RED (RIGHT switch position)
  • Press the footswitch to store the Bypass mode and begin using Brig.

NOTE:  With the rear I/O Mode Selector set to mono -> stereo or stereo, the bypass mode is automatically set to Buffered Bypass.
