Wander through the halls of the Cooper FX Arcades, and with its swappable card platform find a versatile and eclectic collection of effects. The user interface of the pedal itself is simple, containing four knobs, a couple of small buttons to change effect programs and parameter pages, and two switches for Bypass and Auxiliary or Tap functions. Arcades also utilizes a handy OLED screen to display vital information like the currently selected effect, current position of the knobs as well as their current function.
Within each cartridge lives a family of eight related effects, and even under the encompassing card's theme or concept, such as Synth or LOFI effects, there exists quite a range of versatility from the sounds found within. The cards themselves are small and rather inexpensive compared to the price of a whole new pedal, and this selective approach to effects curation allows Arcades to be personalized to exactly what you need, rather than including a bunch of effects that may never be used. Arcades also features an expression pedal input, as well as MIDI input for versatile external control. Spend a day inside the Cooper FX Arcades, moving from card to card and looking into whole new worlds at your leisure.
