I'm working on a pedalboard right now and could use some help understanding how all the techie stuff works. I'm an acoustic player, primarily singer.
What (I think) I'm trying to do is use an ABY to split my signal into two chains: One through an overdrive and one clean. So I can be playing just acoustic normally, and be able to hit Y to have both a clean and an overdriven tone.
Is it possible to do this as simple as possible?
(Please excuse the lack of accuracy. The only pedal pedalboardplanner actually had I'm using is the TR-2)
As it is right now, the board is:
Guitar --> TC Helicon Harmony-G --> ABY --> (BYOC) OD --> TR-2 --> Supernatural Reverb
Coming out of the ABY, A goes to the OD, which goes to one input of the supernatural, and B skips the OD, goes to the Tremolo, and into the other input of the Supernatural.
And for my questions...
Does this work the way I want it to? If not, how would I go about wiring this?
Because my knowledge is limited, what do I need to be aware of when it comes to balance/unbalanced isolated/not, etc.etc.?
Is there a way to have it wired so I can have the options between "overdrive w/o trem" and "overdrive + trem"?
And lastly, how do stereo pedals work when you have two inputs but only one output? Specifically, I will normally run the two signals out to two channels like I described at the beginning of my post, but if I'm only using one speaker, could I have both inputs going into the reverb, but only one output, and still have a clean and dirty signal?
Ahead of time, thanks for any help/advice!
