I was following the development pretty closely but lost interest after a while. Big thread on TGP with all kinds of info. I still wouldn't mind trying one and probably will when the deal lines up. Home town pedal for me, kinda cool just for that reason.PLUS Pedal - The World's First Sustain Pedal for All Melodic Instruments
This thing turns me on. Seriously want one.
Any experience herein?
The Freqout would sustain a single note if you wanted to, but just one note and it wasn’t forever. And the the end of the note wasn’t always predictable and not usually very smooth.What does it do that the digitech freqout doesn't?
That aspect I did not see. The impression I got was that it was intended to be a non-latched switch, rather than something like a looper or delay with infinite repeat. You play a note or chord, make it linger as long as you need it to and play with it or simply use it as a sound with unnaturally long sustain. The use of a piano-like level switch is not merely cosmetic. The intent was to mimic how the same pedal is used with grand pianos; notes overlapping notes with instant elimination of sustain when you lift your foot off. Where it exceeds the EHX Freeze is in having variable rise and fall times. Fall time can be set to zero, such that it behaves like a piano sustain pedal.Does it have a latching mode where the foot pedal works more as an on/off switch, or do you have to have your foot on it the entire time you want it to sustain?
I agree and definitely think that makes the most sense. But it is nice to have the option to to both. For example, on the Strymon BigSky you can hold the footswitch for infinite reverb, but I have found it useful to use a MIDI controller to basically do the same thing with a latching footswitch, which it is very useful. Some drones sound great through very long sections of the song, and it can be difficult to stand with most of my weight on one foot for that long.The impression I got was that it was intended to be a non-latched switch, rather than something like a looper or delay with infinite repeat.

That sounds really cool. It would be neat if you could control "punching in" with an LFO or expression too.To my way of thinking, there are many virtues to having non-latching momentary switching. Of late I have taken to installing what I like to call "punch-in" switches in my delays, that let you introduce new content into the delay path, and omit any new content by simply lifting your foot up.
