First off: what even is a sample and hold?

"A sample and hold circuit is an electronic circuit that samples an incoming signal at regular intervals and holds the sampled value until the next sample is taken. The circuit essentially acts like a "freeze frame" for the input signal, allowing the output to remain constant until the next sample is taken.

Here's how a simple analog S&H circuit works:

  1. The input signal is fed into the sample input of the circuit.
  2. A trigger signal (such as a pulse or gate) is sent to the sample input, causing the circuit to sample the input signal and hold the value.
  3. The held value is outputted from the hold output of the circuit until the next trigger signal is received, at which point the circuit samples the input signal again and updates the held value.

In a modular synthesizer system, an S&H module can be used to generate random or stepped voltages that can be used to control various parameters in the synthesizer, such as pitch, filter cutoff, or LFO rate. By feeding a noise source into the sample input of the S&H module, for example, the module can generate random voltages that can be used for random modulation or sequencing. Alternatively, a clock or sequencer can be used to trigger the S&H module at regular intervals, generating stepped or quantized voltages that can be used for more rhythmic or structured modulation."

Cozy is a PT2399 delay with the time parameter being controlled by a sample and hold (S&H).It has two different modes of operation:

1: Manual Mode, where you sample by either pressing the left footswitch or connecting a 5V CV-Clock to the 3,5mm jack on the back.
Additionally the "tap tempo bypass" will sync to the S&H in manual mode so that every time the pedal turns back on, it has sampled a new signal.

2: Tap Tempo Mode, where the S&H is automatically sampling and holding. You set the rate by either tapping on the left footswitch or adjusting the speed knob ( ). It will automatically switch over to whatever you change last.


Cozy also uses a unique bypass switching system that I call "Triple Bypass", where you have three different "modes" for turning the pedal on and off:

Short Press: Works like any regular pedal. Press to turn it on and then press to turn it off.

Momentary/Hold: If you press and hold for about 1-2 seconds the pedal will enter a hold mode. Here it will simply stay in the state it entered when pressing down the button, for however long you decide to hold down the button, and then return when you release the button.
So if you press down when the pedal is turned OFF it will stay ON for as long as you hold the button pressed down, and vice versa.

Tap Tempo Bypass: If you quickly double tap the bypass button (either when on or off) the pedal will enter the "Tap Tempo Bypass" mode. Here the pedal automatically turns itself on/off in whichever tempo you tap. So to change tempo you simply tap a new tempo.
It continuously counts time since your last tap. So if you have been in a tempo for some time and just tap a single tap, it will count the time between this tap and the last tap in previous tempo as your new tempo. With a max lenght of around 1min.

To exit "tap tempo bypass" you simply press and hold the button for about 1-2 seconds. Note that when exiting this mode the pedal will be ON (regardless if you exit in a OFF or ON state).
