Chorus that ticks?

If you are playing into a dirty amp, will every true bypass chorus tick? I have a BYOC that ticks when on and a small clone and analogman chorus that ticks when bypassed! The tick is always with the rate and you cant hear it into a clean amp. Only a dirty one or into a distortion pedal.

Choruses are clock-based effects, and the clock is what you're hearing. I don't think true bypass has anything to do with it, though I might be wrong here.

My Electro-Shine ticks as well, and it's audible even with a clean amp. I guess it depends on your amp and how loud you have it - dirt pedals and dirty amp channels simply amplify the tick enough to be heard better.

I dealt with a terrible tics and tocs with my pitch pirate into my old SS peavey...

gaddamn pissed me when the pedal was off...when activated I used it for laser toy gun noises...damn annoyed the crap out my ears and playing.

 

I got a Vox tube (w/ built in noise gate), and got myself a looper too. Either way...I'm a winner now.
