One Control's flagship switcher, the Crocodile Tail Loop can create up to 70 presets with the easy push button auto saving system. The OC10 has 7 programs per bank and you can choose up to 10 programs for each program. The OC10 also is equipped midi and can send program changes or to be used as a midi through to be used in combination with other midi devices.
Link two OC10 together with a simple LAN cable to access multiple pedals off stage. The OC10 also has the amazing BJF Buffer from One Control included and also can be bypassed by using the not buffered input. The OC10 can also be a simple switcher but accessing the direct mode. Direct mode is perfect for band practices or experimenting with pedals before you’ve decided how to set your programs. The Crocodile Tail Loop truly is the most innovative pedal switchers on the market.
BJF Buffer Routing:
Many people ask why the Crocodile Tail Loop has a buffered and nonbuffered input. The reason is because with some pedals, guitarists prefer to have a buffer later in their signal chain as to not interfere, or they simply would like no buffer at all.
That is why the Crocodile Tail Loop has a buffer input and output. Think of the buffer input and output just as you would any other guitar pedal. For example if You want have the buffer in loop 8 just run from send 8 into the buffer input, then from the buffer output into return 8.
The Crocodile Tail Loop gives an amazing amount of flexibility:
When it comes to routing. Selectable buffer switching, amp channel switching and effect loop access are just some of the ways that the Crocodile Tail Loop can help you with routing you guitar and pedalboard.
Amp Channel Switching:
The Crocodile Tail Loop has three separate loops that can be used for a variety of purposes. These loops can be used for amp channel switching or connecting effects to go into an amp’s effects loop as well as a variety of other functions to match individual guitar player’s needs.
Loops 8-10 are all labeled with NO and NC. This stands for Normally Open or Normally Closed. Check your amp's manual to see whether the foot’s switch in normally open or normally closed. If your amp has a quarter inch input for amp channel switching it is quite likely that the Crocodile Tail Loop will be able to switch your amp's channels.
The Crocodile Tail Loop comes equipped with a midi input and output/thru. The Crocodile Tail Loop was built to be incredibly user friendly and we decided that should be a part of the midi function as well. With close to no programming at all, guitarists can switch midi programs with their favorite digital effects. Please note that the Crocodile Tail Loop can only send PC# (Patch Change) without the CrocEye.
The Crocodile Tail Loop has TX and RX functions. TX stands for transmit midi, and RX stands for receive midi. Guitarists can choose whether or not they want to send or receive midi program changes on internal programs.
The midi output can also be changed to a midi thru. That way, if you'd like to use a more advanced midi controller or software to control your effects, it is completely possible.
For advanced MIDI functions (PC# and CC#), the CrocEye is needed. With the CrocEye, you'll be able to send tap tempo instruction stoall Strymons by pressing a single footswitch on the Crocodile Tail Loop. The CrocEye can support up to 16 devices and 16 channels.
Link and Sync Functions:
One option that separates the Crocodile Tail Loop from many other switchers on the market is the Sync and Link functions. Being able to link or remotely control a loop switcher is incredibly important for many professional musicians. Whether or use a rack of effects or you prefer to have your tech controlling you patch changes, the Crocodile Tail Loop is a great solution for guitarists who use pedals.
The Link function allows players to connect two Crocodile Tail Loops together with a proprietary cable that uses LAN connectors.
