    hey whats up?
    I want to blend the sound of my bass (w/sans amp) and a clean signal with distortion. I could retain the mids from the clean and get a little more grind from a Boss DS-1.
    Should I get a splitter box and run the clean signal into a different amp? Or is there some kind of pedal I could get to blend the signals?
    I doubt Ill figure this out on my own. Any input is great.

    i think loooper has a an option where you can get a blend pot to mix wet and dry signals. you wouldn't need 2 amps for this, the pedal does the mixing for you.

    Yep, a "mixer pedal" will do the trick. Or there are rack mount options too. But, an EQ might do the trick too, if all you're looking for is a little more midrange.

    my bad, i should've checked the archives.

    Would I need the 1 loooper or the 2?

    I dont understand how I would run the signal.

    The parallel out from the sans amp into the DS-1 Distortion into the return of the looper with the blend set at half?

    Would the boss DS-1 kill the tone of the original signal from the bass because it isnt true bypass?
