KILLSWITCH
MOMENTARY LINE SELECTOR
Congratulations on your purchase of the Electro-Harmonix CHILLSWITCH.

KILL SETUP
In this setup, the CHILLSWITCH allows you to quickly switch between mute and unmute by pressing the footswitch, resulting in a hard rhythmic tremolo effect.

INPUT JACK – Connect to the output of your instrument or another effects pedal
SEND JACK – Disconnect
RETURN JACK – Disconnect
AMP JACK – Connect to the input of your amplifier or another effects pedal

LINE SELECTOR SETUP
In this setup, the CHILLSWITCH allows you to quickly switch between an effects loop and your dry signal by pressing the footswitch. Depending on the effects in the loop, it could trigger a burst of distortion, or perhaps foot-controlled delay feedback… the possibilities are endless!

INPUT JACK – Connect to the output of your instrument or another effects pedal
SEND JACK – Connect to the input of your effects loop
RETURN JACK – Connect to the output of your effects loop
AMP JACK – Connect to the input of your amplifier or another effects pedal

LED INDICATOR

In either setup, the LED reflects the signal present at the AMP jack.
ο LED OFF –

The AMP jack outputs the original INPUT signal
LED ON – The AMP jack outputs the signal from the effects loop (or no signal, in Kill Setup)

“ENGAGE” ROTARY SWITCH

The ENGAGE rotary switch affects how the footswitch controls the AMP output.

– KILL SETUP –
ENGAGE: THRU

While the footswitch is pressed, the INPUT signal travels
directly to the AMP output
While the footswitch is released, the AMP output is  used

LINE SELECTOR SETUP –
ENGAGE: THRU

While the footswitch is pressed, the INPUT signal travels directly to the AMP  output* While the footswitch is released, the INPUT signal travels through the FX Loop

*See “SEND” ROTARY SWITCH section

– KILL SETUP –
ENGAGE: FX

While the footswitch is pressed, the AMP output is muted While the footswitch is released, the INPUT the signal travels directly to the AMP output

– LINE SELECTOR SETUP –
ENGAGE: FX

While the footswitch is pressed, the INPUT signal travels through the FX loop While the footswitch is released, the INPUT signal travels directly to the AMP output*

*See “SEND” ROTARY SWITCH section

“SEND” ROTARY SWITCH
The SEND rotary switch allows you to choose between routing the INPUT signal to the SEND jack at all times (ON position) or only when the FX Loop is active (FSW position). The setting of the SEND switch is ignored when using the KILL setup.

SEND: FSW

The INPUT signal only travels to the SEND jack when the FX Loop is activated.
Use this setting with an envelope-triggered effect (auto-wah): The CHILLSWITCH will reset the envelope sweep with each press of the footswitch

SEND: ON

The INPUT signal always travels to the Send jack.
Use this setting with a delay effect: 
The CHILLSWITCH will continuously send the INPUT signal to the delay.

POWER
Power from the internal 9-volt battery is activated by plugging into the INPUT jack. The input cable should be removed when the unit is not in use to avoid running down the battery.
The barrel connector on the front of the CHILLSWITCH is for a 9-volt battery eliminator capable of delivering at least 25 mA of current. The optional 9V power supply from Electro-Harmonix is 9.6DC-200BI (same as used by Boss™ & Ibanez™) 9.6 Volts DC 200mA. The power supply must have a barrel connector with a center negative. The unit’s battery may be left in or taken out when the eliminator is in use. The actual current draw of the CHILLSWITCH is 12.5 mA

.
To change the 9-volt battery, remove the 4 screws on the bottom of the KILLSWITCH.
Once the screws are removed, take off the bottom plate and change the battery. Please do not touch the circuit board or you risk damaging a component.

Input Jack Impedance
INPUT – 2.2 MΩ
RETURN – 2.2 MΩ

Output Jack Impedance
AMP – 220 Ω
SEND – 220 Ω
