Nakonec jsem koupil tohle:
- Flash 1U rack unit
- Flash power cord (standard euro cable - like PC cable)
- Uptown Flash foot switcher
- special footswitch cable (about 6meters, DIN males plugs)
- original english manual (also include complete schematics)
It works in two modes - switcher and mixer - both in stereo or also mono.
You can set each level using passive mixer pots
(this mode uses 10db attenulation resistors)
or simply add/divide procesed signals (no attenulation)
4 stereo lines in (out) and 1 stereo line out (in) - bidirectional usage !
This unit is full midi-equipt and you can use it with own pedal
so you can enable/disable each of 4 lines, in two modes,
but also controll another midi device, it's also possible
controll flasher by external midi device using midi input intead of
uptown pedal. This unit has also MUTE function, when signal
is routed to tuner output only.
!!! Same unit is used by Prince at his rack tower or by Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam)

"The other half is the fun part: The signal get sent out to the foot-pedals...a SansAmp GT2 distortion pedal, a Dunlop Tremolo, a Boss CE-2 chorus and a Boss Octaver.. and then returns to an Uptown Flash MIDI switcher/mixer which divides the signal and sends it to four preamps. The signal from each preamp then gets sent back to the switcher. This system allows me to select whichever preamp I want at the press of a button, because Jeff likes to use different tones for different basses and different songs. The first two preamps and Pearce B2P's. They're two- channel units with a lot of eq capability, especially in the mids, which are parametric. One channel is meant to be dirty and one is meant to be clean, but you're able to use one channel at a time or combine the two to them; Jeff can get a really dirty, distorted sound and combine that with the thickness of a clean sound. Each channel has its own master output, so you can blend clean and dirty in any ratio that you want."
