Is there any reason to use something like the JHS Buffered Splitter over the LS-2?

    I have an LS-2 and have used it to split my signal in two, one going through a bunch of pedals and my rig, and one going straight into the DI to blend in or as possible back up.

    I am happy with the results, but I am gonna record something "proper" now, and I am just wondering if there is anything I am missing by not using a dedicated buffered splitter. I am also aware of solutions like the Radial DIs with the through output, would dumping money into that or the JHS be worth it, maybe?

    The Ls-2 is buffered and just fine for what you are doing

    LS-2 is fine.

    I've never done this myself, but I'm told that if you blend the signals, it may be worthwhile to record them separately and align their phase for a slightly better result. Scott's Bass Lessons has a video about recording where the guy (some producer) shows how he does this but IIRC it's in the paid section. His process is pretty straightforward though: He looks at the wave shapes and aligns them.
