PX8 + loss of sound

Post by Ricos64 » Mon Nov 04, 2019 1:50 pm

Hello,
I have a PX8 + on which are connected 8 pedals in series as follows:
1) Screamer tube
2) OCD
3) Fuzz face
4) El capistan Strymon
5) Compressor
6) Pickle vibe
7) Sunset
Strymon
8) Mobius Strymon

My problem is this : When I put together the pickle vibe and the OCD or Fuzz I have almost no sound. On the other hand Pickel Vibe and TS no problem. The compressor cuts me off almost when it is activated.
Would you have a solution to my problems?
Sorry for my bad english (I'm french)

Does each pedal work as it should when it is the only effect selected?

As a test, if you directly connect the problematic pedals do you get the same problem? For instance...
1. Guitar to OCD.
2. OCD to Pickle Vibe.
3. Pickle Vibe to amp.

The problem is solved. The loss of sound came from a default to my patch cables!
I would like to know if preselection mode is obliged to assign a channel to have a clean sound?

Glad you were able to solve the problem and that it was as simple as a failing patch cable!

A PX-8 Plus Preset can have any combination of loops including all loops off. Is that what you mean by a "clean sound"?
