New Gear: RockBoard MOD 7
RockBoard MOD 7 – your Jack of all trades when it comes to making the best of your pedalboard.
The RockBoard MOD 7 USB Audio Interface Patchbay offers an easy-to-use audio interface without any special driver or software requirements. In addition, the MOD 7 also acts as an active DI box and offers a simple solution to organize all connections to and from your effects setup.

Whether you are using a RockBoard or any other brand pedalboard – the MOD 7 will open your rig to the digital realm of sound processing and recording. The USB audio interface allows you to connect your effects setup to a PC or MAC to process your signal using digital audio software plug-ins or to record your playing. In addition, you can send your processed signal back through the MOD 7’s balanced DI output for going directly into the FOH mixer while the two unbalanced outputs can be used for monitoring or to send the signal into an amplifier.
If you don’t have your DAW with you that’s no problem either – just put the MOD 7 in bypass mode and use UNBAL OUT 1 to drive your amp without using the interface section of the MOD 7.
The patchbay module is designed to route connections from underneath your pedalboard to its front, giving you a central access point and tidying up your connections.
