Orbis Duo is a Preamp/EQ/Reverb pedal with phantom power onboard, 2 input channels, 2 outputs and special output for headphone. It has 2 combo inputs -  you can insert XLR balanced jacks as well as standard instrumental (or linear) 1/4" jacks. It is built especially for use with handpans and tongue drums, however, it could be used with any other musical instruments - guitars, bass, or else. And of course, you can use it with other pedals, effect processors, etc.
