        I figured that this would be a common theme with different 
problems. I 
think they both center around using the boomerang in 2 different, but like 
        I have been running a small pedal board that splits my signal 
before the 
rang but after effects. I use an a/b to control the signals which only 
differ by the rang. The looped signal goes to an old super reverb, and the 
other to a newer concert. I have a volume pedal that I turn down when I 
and uplug guitars.
        My problem is that the electrix products I just got really need to 
through an effects loop, which only the concert has. I know it seems 
to just loop on the concert, but loops sound better out of the super. 
Anyway, I think that there is a rather complex way to route using many 
cables and the aux on the rang, but it makes my head hurt just thinking 
about it. I would imagine that there are good switching systems out there 
that some loopers might know about.
        Boss makes a good and very flexible line selecter for a hundred 
bucks that 
can also power other pedals. This might help you with your problem. I 
checked it out on rolandus.com yesterday.
