RE: y-switch question

Michael, it is indeed an impedance issue.  You can try playing with different Hi-Z and Lo-Z connectors to get the right combo that works, but the other solution is an active switch.


Good luck!!!

Hello Michael,

are you using a passive Y-switch? I think it happens because of the impedance or level (it´s a kind of water circuit also). It doesn´t happen if you use an active Y box like the Boss LS-2 line selector.

Hope it helps :)

non-loop related question:

I want to use either-or or both of two sound sources (guitar, and guitar controlled synth), so I plug them both into an y-switch feeding my amp.

That seems to work fine at first, I can switch between guitar and synth without problems, both are loud and clear, but when I set the switch to "both at once", the guitar is suddenly very low in volume while the keyboard is as loud as it was. Why is that? is there a remedy?
