CooperFX: Outward v2 Used
In mint condition with original box and paperwork.
The Outward is a digital sampling device that records audio and plays it back in different ways, depending on the
mode. With freezing, stutter, and time stretching effects, there’s a lot the Outward is capable of.
CLOCK: Adjusts the speed at which the DSP chip runs, ranging from 10kHz (CCW) to 60 kHz (CW). When CCW, the
sampling time will be extended, but will be noisier and of lower audio quality.
CLOCK ALT: Snaps the clock to fifths and octaves. Turn the alt control all the way CCW to have no
quantization, turn past noon to enable the clock to snap to fifths and octaves.
TONE: Low pass filtercontrol, useful for cutting down on noise resulting from decreasing the CLOCK control, and in
taming the harshness of the digital signal. **CANNOT BE SAVED TO A PRESET
MIX: Balance between the dry and wet volumes. **CANNOT BE SAVED TO A PRESET
VOL: Volume of the wet signal. **CANNOT BE SAVED TO A PRESET
FRZ|TAP: Can be used to lock the recorded sample into the buffer, preventing it from being overwritten, as well as
being used to tap in a tempo. Note, the tap control does not apply to every mode. To initiate tap, press the
footswitch at least twice. To override the tap control, simply adjust the knob the tap control is affecting (ie, to turn
off tap on SPD but not the SIZE, turn the SPD knob and not the SIZE knob).
The FRZ function is both latching and momentary. If you do a quick press on the button, the FRZ will be latching.
Hold the footswitch (>1/2 second) and you will have the FRZ control be momentary.
**A note on tap tempo visualization: The top pushbutton/led will indicate the LFO tempo, the bottom
pushbutton/led will blink in time with the SIZE tempo. These will only flash if the tap tempo is assigned to a
parameter (ie, if the bottom led is flashing, then you are seeing the SIZE value you tapped in. If the top led is
flashing, then you are seeing the LFO speed you tapped in. If one or both of the LEDs are not flashing, then tap
tempo is not applied to the specified control)
BYPASS: Relay true bypass control. Can either be momentary or latching, depending on how long the switch is
held. Hold for >1/2 second to use it as momentary. Tap it quickly to have the control be latching.
PRST BUTTON: quickly press to scroll up through modes. Preset selection/loading will be entered by holding the
button until the push buttons begin to blink in unison.
ALT BUTTON: quickly press to scroll down through the modes. To enter the alt control mode, hold the alt button,
wait for the corresponding mode LED to begin flashing, then adjust desired knob’s secondary control.
PRESETS: The Outward has four onboard presets. Enter preset selection/save mode by holding the PRST button
until both buttons are blinking in unison. Scroll up/down preset slots (indicated by the three smaller LED’s) using
the pushbuttons. When on the desired preset you can either LOAD what you have saved in the selected slot by
holding the FRZ footswitch. You can alternatively SAVE to the selected preset slot by holding down the BYPASS
footswitch. Mix, Tone, and Volume settings will not be saved into the preset slot.
