The Mastermind PBC/10 is our first switching unit designed for use on a pedalboard. This product combines best of all of the products we've done over the years into one compact and powerful unit. This gives for the first time, the power and flexibility of a rack switching system - on a pedalboard! 

We've designed the Mastermind PBC/10 to get the most out of pedalboards that include MIDI controllable pedals like those made by Eventide, Line 6 and Strymon. Not only does the PBC handle all of the audio routing and switching, but also its comprehensive MIDI features allow complete control over these pedals.


  • 10 audio loops, arranged in a group of 4 loops, a group of 2 loops and another group of 4 loops, with insert points in between
  • The last four loops are stereo capable using TRS jacks
  • Each of the last four loops can be switched between series and parallel routing, using an internal line mixer
  • The two outputs can be used as left and right outputs for a stereo signal, or as A and B outputs to A/B switch a mono signal between two amps
  • The B output has a switchable isolation transformer and a programmable phase switch
  • Three audio buffers, each of which can be enabled or disabled by IA button or as part of a preset (before loop 1, before loop 7 and after loop 10)
  • Click Stopper noise reduction circuit, which can be switched between two positions (before loop 7 or after loop 10)
  • 11 buttons, each with a multi-color LED indicator
  • Easy to read LCD display that can display preset and song names, plus other status
  • Built in tuner
  • MIDI input & output connections, powered by the MIDI "brain" of our Mastermind GT controller
  • USB device port for connection to a PC or Mac. This allows the Mastermind GT to send MIDI commands to a computer
  • USB host port for use with a USB thumb drive. Back up and restore settings to a flash drive, and also use a flash drive to perform firmware upgrades
  • Two 1/4-inch TRS jacks that provide four function switches. These can be used to control the channel switching and other features on an amplifier
  • Expression pedal input that can be programmed to generate MIDI messages
  • External switch input allows two more switches to be added
  • Mac and PC editor software allows for faster and more comprehensive editing



  • Size: 17.5" (w) x 5.5" (d) x 3.33" (h) / 44.5 cm (w) x 14.0 cm (d) x 8.38 (h)
  • Weight: 4 lbs / 1.8 kg
  • 625 presets
  • 250 songs, 16 setlists
  • Can control up to 16 MIDI devices
  • 20 MIDI messages can be assigned per button (PC, CC, Note, Sysex)
  • Power requirements: 9VDC @ 500mA, 12VDC or 9VAC @ 400mA

Please note:The Mastermind PBC/10 can be powered with Voodoo Lab Pedal Power supplies that have a 12VDC 400mA output. You can also power it with a Pedal Power 2 Plus if you use a current double cable with outputs 5 and 6. We also sell "wall-wart" style adapters that work in most countries.

    Amazing Technology

    Posted by Chris Schneider on Apr 24th 2018

    This is something that changes the way midi and pedals are done forever. This is like having an effects processor board but utilizing the best of hand-wired pedals & effects without tap dancing. And the user friendly software and the customization options are awesome & endless. 5-STAR for sure!

    Mastermind PBC

    Posted by John Keilty on Mar 20th 2018

    I've gone through several pedalboard iterations over the last decade, from simple series chains of all analog pedals, passive loop switchers, and more recently, midi controlled behemoths with dozens of pedals. The Mastermind PBC is the first product I've come across where the design and implementation of the feature set anticipates needs I didn't even know I had- in particular, it allows me to get the most out of my midi-controlled pedals in such a way that I've actually been able to shrink my board substantially since purchasing it. The PBC has replaced half a dozen "infrastructure" pedals on my board, which is saving my back, putting some money for new gear back in my pocket, and eliminating points of failure by cutting down on cable runs and connectors. Also, the sound quality (I assume due to the three buffers) is lightyears better than what I've experienced with competing products. I couldn't be happier with the PBC, even though I'm just scratching the surface of what this unit can do. Top notch, RJM. Well done.
