Version 2.0 is released! Same great circuit but a few minor changes. The X and Y pads that control the power on state are now an internal function of the microprocessor. Now you don't have to open the pedal up to jumper or remove the jumper from the pads. The LED has 2 pads now for the anode and cathode to help clean up the LED wiring. The LED can now be directly mounted to the circuit board if you wanted. All other pads are the same as version 1.0.
The Griffin Effects Silent Step switching uses a microprocessor to activate a relay for true bypassing a pedal. It uses a momentary switch to activate/deactivate. We recommend our super quiet "soft touch" momentary switch so there isn't any switch pop (mechanical or true bypass related) giving you studio-quiet operation. The LED is switched by the microprocessor which isolates it from the circuit so there isn't any pop caused by an LED or any special circuit needed to incorporate the LED.
The Silent Step is designed to easily convert mass market and hand-built effects to true bypass. It can also be used to improve reliability and performance for effects already employing true bypass via a 3pdt switch. Since it uses a momentary switch, the Silent Step is great for true bypassing Boss, Ibanez, etc. pedals using the stock bypass switch of the Ibanez or Boss pedal so there isn't any trying to fit big switches and you maintain the stock look.
The Silent Step can be used for other switching situations like making an A/B box, alternating between two effects with one step of the switch, and can be used in true bypass strips. One switch can also operate more than one Silent Step circuit board. Pretty much anywhere a DPDT or 3PDT can be used, Silent Step can be used. At less than 1" square (0.85x 0.987 inches (21.59x 25.0698 mm) it will fit just about anywhere and with a relay that is rated at 100 million switches, you may never have to replace the switch again!

Don't forget an LED. It will power a 3mm or 5mm: http://www.griffineffects.com/372-led-and-lamps
Some pedals may require installing the Silent Step in the battery compartment due to space issues.
Specific pedal installation instructions can be found in the Download section below. If there aren't instructions for the pedal you will need to use the General Instructions or contact us and we'll help you with the installation.
