PX-8 PLUS with an AB/Y Amp Switcher?

Post by Troubadour03 » Sun Jun 24, 2018 4:19 am

Greetings, all.

I'm new to the forum and I just got a PX-8 Plus. So far the switcher is fantastic, and I'm just really getting used to it. I have a question about integrating an AB/Y switcher into the PX-8. (I searched the forum prior to posting this, so I'm hoping I didn't miss something.)

What I'm trying to do is run a Wet/Dry rig using an ABY switcher after my drive pedals but before my delay, mod, and reverb pedals. Here's what I'm thinking- 1) run the SEND of one loop into the input of the ABY 2) Run the first output of the ABY to my "Dry" amp." 3) Run the other output into the RETURN of the loop. 4) Keep all of my wet effects after that loop.

Does that make sense? Anyone else try something like this?

Thanks for any help or advice!

Steve

Your method should work, no problem. ;)

There may be an alternate approach but it would depend largely on what all the pedals you will be using in this setup will be and if any of them will be always on or if simply muting the "wet" amp would work as an effects on off.

Thanks JohnClark! I appreciate that info before I pick up the AB/Y switcher. The PX-8 Plus is really blowing my mind. Makes my life a lot easier and more organized.
