  • Activating multiple pedals

    Hi guys,


    I play guitar and sing  in a 3 piece so often I find myself going from rhythm to lead while singing.  Im not big into effects and don

    There's several different ways you can achieve what you're after. The simplest is with individual pedals and a true bypass loop pedal or two. Going beyond that, there are pedals like the Carl Martin Octa-Switch that allow you to combine multiple pedals in various different pre-set combinations of your choice with the click of a switch. Something like that costs a lot more, but is far more flexible.

      I have seen some really good Video Demos for VooDoo Labs pedal switchers,  I have both the pedal power 2 and the Amp switcher and they are both solid pieces of kit. 

      I dunno to be honest when i watched the Voodoo Labs Pedal switcher Demo it got me a bit hard.

    Guys, double check what he's asking. He's using a POD on the floor and wants some programming advice for it.

    Yes, organize your patches into groups that enable/disable what you need. Not certain how to exactly setup the pod to do that, but eg. Four banks of bypass/rhythm/lead/lead+delay could work. Just read the manual over to get the specifics down, and experiment with it.

      My understanding is that he's using an overdrive and maybe a reverb in addition to his pod?
