For those that need to switch between instruments and want the ability to employ a programmable boost for fills and solos, Whirlwind introduces the Commander 2, a two-channel instrument switcher, booster, feedback eliminator and tuner with built-in DI.
Each channel features an input gain control for compensating for different pickup types and balancing the level between instruments. Then easily switch between instruments with a touch of the A/B footswitch.
Each channel also features a programmable boost. Set the amount of boost for each instrument and then switch between your rhythm and lead volumes and back again with the BOOST footswitch.
The unit also features a built-in chromatic tuner with a fast, bright, easy to read display. A tuner button activates the tuner and mutes the outputs for silent tuning.
A built-in polarity reverse switch is included along with a sweepable notch filter to subdue feedback without affecting your tone.
A 1/4" output jack and a built-in transformer isolated DI out with XLR jack are provided to feed an onstage monitor, mixer and/or house PA. A ground lift switch is also provided for breaking the ground connection to the DI output to help eliminate ground loop hum and buzz.
