    Hey guys,

    I’ve been working on revamping my very complicated pedalboard (or so I’m told), and ran into an issue.

    I’m trying to run three parallel signals. Signal A is for a Big Muff, Signal B is for a Rat distortion, and signal C is a clean channel. And yes to those of you who noticed, this is an attempt to make my own “Chris Wolstenholme” sound.

    I have a Morley ABC to split to my three parallel signals, which works wonderfully. I used to have a Rolls Mini Mixer for combine them all back into one, but liked the idea of using another ABC instead. The Rolls had some issues with power.

    Silly me, I didn’t read the instruction manual. Apparently, it is not recommended to have three inputs combined into one output simultaneously with the ABC. And for good reason. I’m getting a ton of hum/squeal from my amp. I also checked out Lehle’s website to see if they had what I need, and couldn’t find it.

    So - here is my question. Does anyone know of a pedalboard friendly way to combine three inputs simultaneously, and send to a single output? Links/photos/personal experience would be appreciated.

    You might want to take a look at Sound Sculpture's Switchblade 8F. It's a matrix switcher, means you can route any output to any input. But it's pretty expensive...

    I think Saturnworks make those kind of blenders, to blend 3 or 4 pedals in parallel. Parallel loop blenders or something...

    Other alternative is to get a MOD Duo from MOD Devices. It's a multi fx that let you chain multiple parallel signal chains.
