    Hey guys,

    So my church is looking for a "cheap" bass rig for when I'm not there because I guess my $1000+ board actually makes a tonal difference when it comes to mixing. I've been looking at the Boss GT-1B all morning because I keep a majority of my pedals on for shaping and only add two or three pedals here and there for accenting stuff.

    My main question, because it has a stereo output, is it possible to set one of the outputs as a direct out of just the bass's unprocessed sound? I have a DI box at the beginning of my chain that we send right to the board with a low pass filter to emphasize the low end, and I haven't found a ton of ways to replicate it yet without buying a DI box and a mutable tuner to go before the GT-1B.

    The L/R outputs are the processed signal through the GT-1B. Unfortunately it does not have a pass through output.
    I do not think there is a way to split the signal through the unit for a clean / effected signal pair.
    I have gone through all the settings on mine quite a bit. Also no mention of this ability in the user manual.

    An A/B/Y box before the unit may get what you want, or a Boss LS2 if you want to split and then remix a clean/effected signal to just one channel of FOH.
