Please check again with a cable plugged in to main out and a cable plugged into Sympathetic
If the dry level is up and the second knob “lead” is at zero you should only hear the dry guitar when the pedal is on.
(Turn the level knobs up and down first)
I did some experimentation, turning the knobs, switching cables etc., and finally found the problem: Whenever I bypass the pedal, the dry signal goes out of BOTH outputs. That means I hear two dry signals simultaneously, and therefore they sound louder. Also the sound quality will be perceived differently, since the two channels are processed differently. Why on earth did you make the pedal like that? That means I have to pull cable out of the sympathetic output (or mute the channel) every time I wish to bypass the effect. Or is there any other way to avoid this unwanted dry signal in bypass mode?
Basically my idea was to have the lead/dry going through different other effects before going into the mixer, while the sympathetic would go straight into its own channel on the mixer, and just get some of the built in reverb from that. But now, every time I bypass the Ravish, I get the clean signal through the sympathetic output on top of the processed guitar signal (through my other effects). Please help me to solve this. I would like to avoid pulling out cables or going to mixer to mute in the middle of a song…
