Tag Archives: Sustain
The Electro-Harmonix Freeze is a sustain pedal, but not a compressor. It is actually a delay-based effect that can be used to create drones or imitate a grand piano’s sostenuto pedal. To my knowledge, the Freeze offers a completely unique effect (though it is included in some of the larger EHX pedals). In most settings, the pedal takes a very short sample of your signal when the foot switch is first depressed. This sample is repeated until the foot switch is released.
