Rockboard Announces the MOD 4 Wireless System and Patchbay

Rockboard MOD 4 Wireless System and Patchbay

Warwick’s Rockboard has expanded its lineup with the MOD 4, an all-in-one wireless system receiver and patchbay for pedalboards. Its wireless portion works in the 2.4 GHz ISM band and has a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency range at just 5 ms of latency.

“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,” the company writes. “The A, B, C, and D TRS sockets are wiring thru-connections from the front of MOD 4 to the corresponding sockets on the back. This allows you to connect your pedals permanently underneath the board, so you only have to connect cables to and from the front of the board, instead of having to route underneath it when setting it up for a gig.”

The Rockboard MOD 4 is available individually or with their U2 transmitter with prices of $224 and $326.
