    I know why one needs to phase invert, but to be honest I dont know what I am listening for.

    I finally got my vb-jr, and I have my musket in the loop, I was told that muffs need to be inverted if blended with clean signal, the musket is a muff derivative

    any help is appreciated

    If the blended tone is thin, or lacking in low end, then try inverting the phase. Basically phase conflicts typically result in waves either canceling each other out, or resonating at specific frequencies, and the common audible signs are thinness and lack of lows.

    Inverting the phase will not always solve the problem, and sometimes it can even make things worse, but it's a good tool to have for the instances where it does help.

    I have a few fuzzes that require me to pop the invert switch on my VB-Jr, and it's always just to try and bring back a little girth. Just switch it whichever way sounds better to you.

    Yup. Set the blend to 50-50, switch back and forth, and see which one sounds better.

    thanks for the replies

    that is pretty much what i have been trying to figure out,

    and yes the musket needs a blend now that you say it, it has more low end 100% wet than blended

    so musket owners take note!
