Odd routing/looping pedal
For the last couple of years I have been using a parallel effects chain, using a Boss LS-2. This has allowed me to preselect what effects I want, and then turn everything on with one footswitch.
My band have recently been in the studio recording an album, for which I sent all of my effects into a guitar amp as well as my bass amp. It sounded incredible for all of the distortion sounds, and I have decided that I want to move to this setup for live use. I want to continue to turn everything on with one button, but in order to preserve my clean tone I only want the guitar amp on when the effects are turned on. I also want to be able to have two distortions in parallel, and have a clean blend. I have been having a think about it, and the solution that I came up with is putting an ABY pedal after the output of the LS-2, with one send of the ABY going to the guitar amp, and then putting the ABY and LS-2 in the loop of a true-bypass blender, like the X Blender.
Is there a single pedal solution to this that would replace the LS-2 and do the other stuff I want, or is it going to be a custom job? Alternatively, can anyone think of an alternative solution that would be more elegant than the ABY/X-Blender combo?
