Audio Simplified has unveiled the Pedal Pusher, a 19” rack unit that allows you to use your guitar pedals within your DAW, or in conjunction with a mixing desk.

The front of the unit is fairly simple, sporting two distinct effects loops and six isolated power supplies with switchable voltage. Its internal signal chain supports various signal; levels and impedances, as well as both active and passive pickups. There are multiple routing options, for example, running both effects loops in tandem with the same input for some wet/dry action, or record a clean DI signal alongside your main tone.

The pedal sends are able to match the impedance of a pickup, meaning they will retain the same tonal character if you want to re-amp a track from a DAW.

An example setup, courtesy of Audio Simplified, is below but there are countless ways this unit could be routed.
