Are you playing with your cables more than your pedals? Terminal adds new routing possibilities to a more permanent setup. Its half-normalled configuration, which is also used in recording studio patch bays, allows an audio signal to pass “normally” and to be copied from the Green SND jack without interruption. However, the signal can also be cut off or replaced by patching into the RTN jack. It’s easy to insert effects and re-route instruments without pulling your rig apart.
This simple but very useful design was originally a custom project for musician Tycho, who is using Terminal in his studio and live rigs to quickly patch between sections of pedal and instrument chains. Community interest in the product led Boredbrain to produce Terminal in limited batches, and then due to its popularity, it has now become a mainstay.
Pedalboard Access Points
Each Terminal channel is placed at specific points in the signal chain. New effects can then be inserted at these points, or entire sections can be bypassed using a single cable.
Instruments Patch Hub
Each Terminal channel is a dedicated patch point for an instrument signal on its way to a mixer or DAW. Effects can be inserted into the signal easily, or it can be copied to another channel.
