Stereo loops for infinite routing and switching possibilities

Loops 7 through 10 on the Mastermind PBC are stereo capable. When the Mono/Stereo switch is in the "out" position, the Mastermind PBC takes the signal coming into loop 7 and sends it to both the left and right sides of the stereo signal, creating a false stereo signal. In the "in" position, it leaves the signal from loop 7's input unchanged, allowing you to send a stereo signal into Inputs 7-10.

Flexible outputs work as a stereo pair or dual mono

The Mastermind PBC's two outputs are extremely flexible. When the Mono Output switch is in the "in" position, it takes the left side signal and feeds it to both the A and B outputs, allowing you to use the outputs as a mono A/B/Y switch for switching between two amps. In the "out" position, the A and B outputs are fed from the left and right sides of the signal, respectively, for stereo operation. The Mastermind PBC also features an isolation transformer, which can help alleviate ground loop hum when using two amplifiers. You can also invert the phase of Out B, in case your amps don't sound right when played together.

MIDI features allow complete control over your pedals

If you've got MIDI-controllable pedals, like those made by Eventide and Line 6, the Mastermind PBC has got you covered. 

Internal line mixer lets you run effects in parallel

Thanks to the RJM Music Mastermind PBC's internal line mixer, loops 7-10 can be routed in parallel. This means that the effects don't affect each other, so you can pile them on without muddying up your tone. Parallel routing can also help you avoid AD/DA degradation by mixing a dry signal in with your processed signal. On top of that, the line mixer also allows delay and reverb tails to trail off naturally, without echoing any new notes played. You also get a "kill dry" function that allows you to output only a wet signal, so you can use the output level controls on your pedals to set the amount of effect you want.

Audio buffers keep your signal clean

The RJM Music Mastermind PBC utilises a series of buffers to "strengthen" your guitar's signal and preserve its sound quality. And in the event that you'd like to turn the buffers off (pedals such as Wahs and germanium fuzzes work better without a buffer), all are independently switchable.

Click Stopper makes for transparent switching

The Click Stopper circuit eliminates those annoying clicks by briefly muting audio output when the relays are switching.
