SYMPH: This knob mixes in a slight octave effect on the wet reverb signal. While subtle, this shifts the mood and character quite a bit. This is also tied to some frequencies in the reverb for more harmonic content.
MIX: This a wet/dry blend. Turn all the up for 100% wet and all the way down for 100% dry.
MOD: This parameter controls the rate of the multi-voiced chorus and changes some of the frequencies in the reverb oscillation
VERB: This controls the decay timefor the reverb.
VOL: Adds a bit of gain to the drysignal pre effect; can be used whenbypassed in buffer/trails mode as aclean boost.

The Soft Focus runs from 9 to 18 volts using a standard DC center-negative power supply for pedals. Make sure you’re using a supply that provides at least 100mA. Running the Soft Focus at 9V will sound great, but if you want a bit more output, a dry signal boost and increased headroom, try any voltage you like up to 18V! The Soft Focus does not run on batteries.
