Arcades can be any type of pedal you want. It is a versatile multi effect platform, but what makes it unique is that it determines what type of effect it is based on the card that is inserted into the pedal. Much like certain retro video game consoles, the Arcades will allow the user to swap cards to select the experience they want. Instead of a video game however, the change of a card will result in a different bank of eight effects.
UPDATE: ARCADES will now ship with 1 fixed card only. This card is titled "Pastiche" and it is a sampling (1 algorithm) from each of the 8 cards currently available. You can purchase extra cards at an additional cost of $49 per card.
Arcades from Cooper FX is a multi-algorithm pedal platform whose selection of effects are loaded from cartridges, making it a great choice for a variety of scenarios. Each cartridge comes with eight powerful effects algorithms.
Arcades has four main controls whose functionality changes based on the algorithm loaded. In addition to the controls, a program-dependent footswitch is available, which can be used for tap tempo with certain time-based effects. The OLED screen in the center of Arcades displays the currently active program, knob positions, and knob functions. In addition to the knob controls, Arcades can be controlled by external expression pedals or MIDI.
The LOFI cartridge algorithms include VHS, Vinyl, Crusher, Delay, Reverb, RngMod, BitVrb, and Synth. Pitch algorithms include Dual, EnvGld, Arppeg, ArpFrz, Organ, Grains, Glass, and Crystl. Arcades is a fantastically versatile pedal with a wide variety of effects to choose from that sound great and add extra character to your sound.
