How to use Boss LS -2 with GCX / GCP

Post by aflanagan125 » Tue Jan 26, 2016 11:50 am

Hi, I have a bass pedalboard which utilizes a boss Ls 2 to split it into two chains, allowing me to have effects with a clean blend. How would I wire this with GCX and GDP?

Welcome to the board!!

How are you using the LS-2 now? If you could give us an idea as to what your current signal chain looks like, it would be easier to offer suggestions on incorporating it into a GCPro/GCX rig.

Bass signal into L's 2 which then has the output into the amp.
Loop A: boss tu3, ehx octave multiplexer, boss ds 1, boss ce3
Loop B: boss tu3, DigiTech bass syntu wah, ehx big muff

The wet output on the octave multiplexer goes to a guitar amp

I use the ls2 in 2 ways, to run both loops at once with different pedals on each, and to run one loop with the other as a clean blend. The tu3 in each acts as a killswitch for each loop.

It would be simpler to replicate exactly what you're doing now with two GCX loops and eliminate the LS-2 entirely, along with one of the TU3s.

But how would I then get the clean blend with it?
