  • Pedalboard-friendly summing / mixing boxes

    They may not be sexy, but they're needed. Got a couple of mono in / stereo out pedals? Then like me, you could probably use a multi-input summing box. And I don't think there are that many out there, which is where you come in. If you know of any, please post them. If you are a builder, please consider designing / building something along these lines.

    Thanks.

      i dont understand. so if you have 2 mono in, stereo out pedals at the end of your chain, how would such a box remedy it?

        Questions? I'll try to help un-confuse you if I can...

          not entirely sure what the purpose for these is, but im interested. is it for things like balancing input levels for maybe a single coil and humbucker guitar?

            Amdek MXK-600 will do -50 and -35 signals, I think Rolls might make one and I believe there's a vintage Roland unit as well.

                What's wrong with the old DOD 240? They can be had for pretty much nothing and work fine.

                  Well, those are totally passive so you could end up with some weird interactions between pedals. I have one from take flight, I believe, that works pretty well. 4 in 1 out. I don't know if take flight are still making them, though. Or anything.

                  I've been thinking of designing a pair of pedals that would be intended for use together. One a 3 or 4 way splitter that would let you choose full frequency, bass, mid, or treble only for each channel and the other a simple 4-input mixer. The idea would be you could send different frequencies to different pedals in parallel and then recombine them at the end.

                  Well, it's a brainstorm, anyway. I need to look more into how a few aspects of it would best be implemented.

                    a couple issues with the DOD would be, it's mono, so if you're mixing a few stereo pedals you're limited to one output in mono, instead of stereo and you'd only be able to mix two stereo pedasl to mono which wouldn't make much sense.
                    it's also passive instead of active, it also has no sum level. a cool box but very limited.

                      I'm not sure I understand the question properly, but the only thing that comes to mind is this
                      I doubt it's exactly what you want but it may get you closer...

                        so more or less something like this, powered, can set input/output gain, sum from stereo to mono and isn't a $3000+ rack unit...

                            Multi-input summing box? Don't you just want a mixer? I've seen compact mixers used on boards posted here before.
