    I've been looking into this GED-2112 and seen some videos. Sounds awesome. Only thing I questioned was how I would make the 2 separate outputs work with my one-amp rig. It just occurred to me that my GB SM9.2 has 2 pre's (a tube and a ss). Eureka!

    Is it possible that I can run those separate outputs into my amp and blend (and/or switch) the channels there? That would be AMAZING!!

    I'm thinking to do this I would need to run the 2112 outputs into my effect returns on the amp. If I did that, would it bypass the eq? Is there a way to not bypass the eq? I know @agedhorse knows these things. Agedhorse, can you help me live my dream? If anyone else can help out, even better. TIA

    On the ShuttleMax 9.2, the effects loops for the two channels is pre eq, so you can simply use the effects return jacks for each channel and have eq, tone shape filters and switching/mixing all at your fingertips as well as footswitching of all features.

    Wow, that decides it. That's what I was hoping. Both pieces of gear have so much I/O flexibility it's amazing. @agedhorse thank you for the great news!

    And FWIW the GED-2112 allows you to sum the two preamps so you can also use it with a single output channel if you prefer.

    Well, I've read here that that's true, and that it voids the warranty (whatever that's worth). But I haven't heard from anyone who has actually flipped that jumper.

    I suppose if I did that, I could plug my bass into my SM9.2 and run the GED as an effect loop on one SM channel and be able to have a clean channel and a GED channel. More cool flexibility.

    It’s true. It doesn’t void the warranty. You have heard from someone who has done it ... me.

    Here is a quote from @tech21nyc that refers to the jumper (one of several mentions)

    Well almost exactly a year later I opened her up and switched the jumpers. I should have done it last year. Super easy. I did both mods; the Tie and the Bypass. The mute was useless to me, the bypass is better. The tie is just easier to manage as one signal path. If I had a bridgeable stereo power amp maybe I'd say otherwise. YMMV. But the mod itself is VERY easy and worked fine.
