Q: Is Airpatch compatible with all effects pedals?
A: Airpatch is compatible with all effects pedals using industry standard instrument level signals. Airpatch has been tested with most major brands and designs. Airpatch is compatible with ‘mono’/ monophonic audio connections only (not stereo). Overloading the Airpatch Input may cause damage to the electronics. Audio signal levels going into the Airpatch input should be kept below 9V (peak).
Results may vary depending on the design of the pedal you use. If you experience an issue please let us know and describe which effects pedal combination was used. Airpatch is compatible with both true bypass and buffered bypass pedals.
Q: How many pedals can I connect?
A: Airpatch uses a single channel effects loop. You may connect as many pedals in the effects loop as you want. All pedals in the loop will be activated and bypassed together using the single-button wireless controller. Airpatch can be connected anywhere in your signal chain allowing you to connect pedals before and after the effects loop as well.
Q: Will there be interference with other wireless devices?
A: No. Airpatch is compliant with FCC regulations and has been designed and tested to ensure that it will not disrupt other wireless devices or be disrupted by other wireless devices (including wireless guitar systems, bluetooth devices, phones, etc.)
Q: Is the attachment system compatible with my instrument?
A: Yes. The Airpatch controller mounting plate is designed to mount securely on any flat surface using our proprietary removable, reusable adhesive pad. The wireless controller clips into the mounting plate. The connection is very strong and you will not need to worry about it falling off or being removed by accident.If your instrument does not have a flat surface to locate the controller, or your application demands a different solution please reach out and we will work with you to develop a mounting plate that suits your application. Stay tuned for new mounting plate options for instrument straps and more.Q: Will the adhesive pad mark or damage my finish?A: We use a specialized adhesive pad that was developed specifically for finish friendly applications. The adhesive pad has been tested on Nitrocellulose, Polyurethane and Polyester guitar finishes with no effect on the finish whatsoever after being fastened to the instrument for months at a time.Please ensure you follow the assembly instructions when applying the adhesive pad. The permanent side sticks to the controller mounting plate and the finish friendly/ reusable side will adhere to your instrument or playing surface. If the adhesive pad gets dirty simply wash it with warm, soapy water until clean and let it dry in a clean place. Once dry, the pad will be clean and the adhesion will be preserved.
