Hi there, I just got the EBS Billy Sheehan pedal and it reeeeally does sound killer. My only complaint is that the loops get switched off when the pedal is not in use. I kinda hoped they would have kept on working, but probably, since the pedal is true bypass, when it's off it really sends your bass signal straight from the input to the output. One question, though... on the instruction sheet, right after the part on the insert cables to be used on the loop outputs, it says: "Note: You may also connect a mono plug directly into the insert jacks without damaging the send output. This gives you the option of mixing different sources without necessarily using the send signal." What does that mean? Any suggestions? Did someone experiment on this? Thanks! A'
