    I am currently running:

    Bass->Qtron+->Carvin BX1200 with Bass Big Muff->Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai in it's FX loop.

    What I am looking to do it acquire some magic device that will let me switch my BBM+SMMH combo between my BX1200 FX loop and my Qtron+ FX loop. Like this:

    SwitchP.

    Does such a thing exist? Could it be made? Am I insane?!?

    :help:

    Hya! It looks like you want a looper (sometimes called a true-bypass looper) pedal. There's a few of these around - take a look at loop-master.com or http://www.toadworksusa.com/RB.html for examples. There's several different makes, shapes and sizes, though.

    That's the box you posted, but I'm not convinced it'll do exactly what you want.

    Am I understanding this right, you have the Bass Big Muff and SMMH in the effects loop of your amp? If so, why? Those are instrument level boxes so I'm not sure why you'd be running them at line level. I'm just curious.

    As for your question, it sounds like you want a WOBO double looper

    It will let you turn either loop on or off as you wish, and most importantly, the invert switch toggles both A & B switches. So if they're both on, they'd both go off or in your case, if one was on and one was off, it would switch that.

    Here's the double looper page on the WOBO website.

    Hope that helps.

    Yeah, Lehle makes some nice ones too. But try running all of your fx in whatever looper you choose, all in front of the amp. The amp's loop isn't always ideal.

    I knew this would come up... The short answer is that that's where I want them and have yet to experience any problems doing so.

    I was surprised the SMMH worked, I read some negative reviews regarding it and loops, but no problems at all. Which was key to my keeping it- I wanted it's looping feature after everything, including my amp's drive and compressor. I credit Carvin, very underrated.

    Looking into all your suggestions....

    So I looked at them all and they are all what I'm looking for, all at different prices and extras to go with them... I'm going to have to think on this.

    I've seen like 5 people use the word "denizen" after bongo said it. It's the new buzzword.




    bongo, use "exculpate" in a sentence. We'll see how far we can take this.

    Maybe you only started to notice the use of "denizen" after bongo used it... That is to say, maybe you are the one that is subconsciously linked to bongo.

    You must be for you to come into a thread for no reason other than to bring him up! :D



    And since no one else said it I will: "Captain, you spelled benevolent wrong! Stupid newb!"

    I'm sorry! I never use the topic box, so I forgot to spell-check it. :bawl:

    Search for the word "denizen." No one used it. Bongo did. Now it's a buzzword.

    And for the record, everyone already knows that I'm in love with bongo. I just wish I could get him to notice me. :atoz:

    I just searched.

    The word "denizen" hadn't been used since September of 07. Since bongo said it, it's popped up like 15 times.

    Your bad? Your bad? Is that all you have to say for yourself?!?!?!?!?!

    Snake, sometimes I doubt if we can ever really make this work.
     
  19. Spanky, please! I promise, I can make up for it. Its just between school, work, music, I'm always so busy. But I'll make time, I promise!

    FWIW the word "denizen" forever entered my vocabulary via the Mos Eisley Cantina when I was seven.
