MXR M-80 Parallel output question
Have any of you used the MXR-80 as a "proper" signal splitter.
I see a lot of descriptions where they only mention the parallel output being used to send a signal to a tuner.
But can it be used to send a nice dry signal to your amp?
This may be a really dumb question, but I'm a total n00b when it comes to signal splitting.
I'm thinking about using the MXR-80 to sculpt my P.A. tone and then send an uneffected signal to my amp, so I can work with a nice clean and "unspoiled" sound.
Yes it is directly connected (in parallel) to the input, use that to your amp to bypass the pedals eq. Or use an a/b box after the pedal A=pedal OUTPUT, B=dry PARALLEL out. I love these kinds of DI pedals, they're the swiss army knives of gear.
Thanks for the reply!
And I agree - it is a very cool feature.
I like how the MXR-80 sounds when it's going into my Sansamp Bass Driver. I will use these two units to sculpt my "P.A. tone"....
The problem is - I think the Sansamp sounds way too scooped when going into most bass amps - since a lot of them have an inherent scoop. And I don't dig the fact that the sound coming out of my cab has an speaker emulation effect.
Thus, I will send a clean signal from the parallel output to my Xotic Bass BB Preamp (or DOD FX91 overdrive) - they both sound awesome when going into an amp. But they are not really particularly "D.I." friendly. Hopefully, this will leave me with the best of both worlds.
