What Electro Harmonix say....
EHX Freeze sound retainer
Capture a frozen moment and turn it into a tonally unique sonic foundation. The Freeze Sound Retainer delivers infinite sustain of any note or chord at the press of a momentary footswitch. Release the footswitch and you are again sample ready. Three selectable decay rates, including a latch mode, guarantee liquid, smooth tonal transitions. Hook the Freeze up with your favorite pedals for a sonic collage that will be unlike anything you have ever heard. It’s like adding an extra musician to the band.
— CONTROLS —
EFFECT LEVEL — Controls the volume of the sustained sound. The output always contains the dry signal at its original volume
MODE SWITCH — Selects between one of three effect modes: FAST, SLOW, and LATCH. See the MODE DESCRIPTIONS section for more detail.
STATUS LED — The LED is on while the effect is sounding or fading out. When the LED is off, the effect is completely silenced and the output contains only the pure dry signal.
INPUT JACK — Connect the output of your instrument or another effects pedal to this jack. The input impedance presented at the INPUT jack is 2.2 M ohm.
AMP JACK— Connect the AMP jack to your amplifier input or the input of another effects pedal. The output impedance at this jack is 470 ohm.
9V Power Jack — Plug the output of the supplied AC Adapter into this jack located at the top of the FREEZE. The FREEZE’s current requirement is 140mA at 9VDC. The polarity of the power jack is center-negative. The FREEZE accepts most Boss style AC Adapters.
— MODE DESCRIPTIONS —
FAST — When the footswitch is triggered, the FREEZE will immediately sustain the current input. The sound will be sustained until the footswitch is released, at which point the effect will immediately disengage.
SLOW — When the footswitch is triggered, the FREEZE will sustain the current input, fading in the effect. The sound will be sustained until the footswitch is released, at which point the effect will fade out slowly. The speed of the fade can be set during slow-speed initialization. See below.
LATCH — When the footswitch is triggered, the FREEZE will immediately sustain your current sound. The sound will continue to be sustained upon releasing the footswitch. When the footswitch is triggered again, the FREEZE will immediately replace the sustained sound with the new current input. A double-tap on the footswitch will silence the effect.
— SLOW-SPEED INITILAZATION —
The speed at which the effect fades in/out in SLOW mode can be adjusted by following these steps:
1) Unplug the power jack
2) Hold down the footswitch
3) While holding down the footswitch, plug in the power jack (LED will blink)
4) Move the mode switch to the preferred setting based on this table:
Switch Position Fade-in Speed Fade-out Speed
Up 200ms 400ms
Middle 200ms 1.0 sec
Down 800ms 3.2 sec
5) Release the footswitch, the FREEZE is ready for normal operation.
The FREEZE will retain the chosen fade speed through power cycles and will not change until reinitialized.

Our chosen couriers are currently operating as normal and all orders should be delivered on time. DPD are also now operating a "contact-free" service as a standard process and customers will not be asked to sign handheld units.
Order before 2pm, Monday to Friday, for same-day dispatch of in-stock orders. Very heavy items such as pianos may take longer to deliver. In-stock orders placed over the weekend will be dispatched on Monday. Estimated delivery times for out of stock items are to be used as a guide only, these items may take longer than estimated to arrive. While we try our best to ensure rapid delivery of your order, delays may occur which are outside our control, and delivery of large or bulky items, or to remote or non-mainland addresses may take longer than estimated.
Most UK deliveries are shipped by our trusted courier, DPD. You'll receive an email with a delivery day, tracking and a one hour estimated delivery window on the morning of delivery. While we can't specify the time of the delivery, if it's not convenient, you can arrange directly with DPD for an alternative delivery date or request the parcel be left with a neighbour.
For heavier items, we usually ship UK deliveries by TNT. You will receive an email with tracking details when we ship your order.
Delivery to mainland UK addresses is free on all orders over £99. Delivery charges are based on the size and weight of your order and, in some cases, your location. A standard next working day carriage charge for UK mainland addresses is shown on the shopping basket page, but you can change delivery service later in the checkout.
We use a few different delivery couriers, depending on the items being sent, your location, and the delivery service you've chosen:
Most orders will need to be signed for and we advise you make sure to check your parcel/s for any damage before signing. If no-one is available at your address, a card will be left so you can arrange a re-delivery directly with the courier. Redirection of an order after it's been dispatched may incur an extra charge from the courier.
Delivery charges displayed apply to most UK mainland addresses. Deliveries to Northern Ireland, UK non-mainland, and European addresses will cost more, and carriage charges will be shown at the checkout before you place your order. Free delivery offers may not apply to some remote/Scottish Highlands addresses.
There are currently delays for all returns processing due to extra safety procedures. Thanks for your patience during this difficult time.
