We're taking 5 slots and connecting then serially with midi controlled switching. There is a "slot 5" out which is a "even more direct" direct out for studio applications but the primary function for Quiver is to use your favourite modules in a live setting as part of an amplification system.

We'll get a back panel and detail shot up asap

In the pic above, we have the Quiver loaded with a Doc Derr from Empirical Labs, a VOG from Littlelabs, the Moog Ladder filter and an Elysia Xpressor filling the final 2 slots.

As shown, the input mute is active as are slots 2 and 4 (the Vog and Xpressor).

The rightmost square button (unlit) is the midi store button and pressing it followed by the receipt of a valid midi program change message will assign the current setting to that program number.

On the left side of the control panel, there are up/down buttons to adjust the trim for each programmed preset so that either the patches can be adjusted for equivalent volume or a patch can be set for a solo volume etc.

Each patch also has an effect loop on/off and serial parallel selection.

The bottom row has the input jack with active passive switch, input gain, limiter threshold, parallel effects loop balance and master volume.

Each slot has an optional pad (for cascading pre-amps) and slots 1 to 3 have the option of bypassing the onboard preamp when pre-amplifier modules are used in those slots.

Premier Guitar includes us in their best picks of the show:

NAMM 2013 Editors' Picks - Day 3 - Premier Guitar

we also got rave reviews from several studio gear designers, a few of the world's elite bass builders and a couple of pedal companies that were sitting on the fence regarding offering 500 series versions...until now!!!
