Guitar synth setup.. Question.

Post by Haze » Sun Apr 03, 2016 1:51 am


I am putting together a tour rig and have a few questions about using my GCX and GCP.

I am looking for the cleanest way to run both my guitar and synth output through my racked guitar pedals, yet still operate both independently and/or simultaneously.

- I would like to be able to have all the pedals available and create patches to run the synth and guitar through different pedals depending on the patch.

I am thinking mixer or reverse A/B pedal to combine the guitar with the synth signal.

You had me right up until "independently and/or simultaneously"...

You will sometimes want the Guitar and the Synth to use the same effects at the same time? If so, then yes, at least some sort of mixer would be required to combine the two instruments.

Do these ultimately run to the same amplifier, or to some other sort of single output?
