2 Drives parallel - clean leakage

Hi all,

i am experimenting with 2 drives wired in parallel in different signal paths.

Thing is, when i deactivate Drive 2, the clean signal from that signal path leaks through to Path 1. When i engage both drives everything is OK, switching one off leads to the leakage described......  I understand the signal path with the deactivated drive is still "on" but that is not what i want.

Am i doing something wrong? Any hints appreciated....

If your just bypassing the block, its doing what its supposed to do....letting the audio pass through.  You want to attach your controller (snapsnots, expression petal, stomp switch) to the Level Parameter and reduce it to the minimum amount.  That will kill any signal getting into the block. 

 

If I understood your post correctly.

This sounds promising, can i at the same time link the stomp switch used to "off" the Drive 2 make it set Level to "o"?

I wouldn´t prefer to solve this with a snapshot cause this would limit me to switch between strict settings in Snapshot mode.

Yes, I dont use stomps much....I do snapshots for most my changes as I create a preset per song type approach.

 

Not sure how to do it on the Helix as I edit in HX Edit mostly...

 

But in HX edit, 1) highlight the block, 2) click on the right tab (bypass tab) and then just choose the controller (stomp), 3)Choose what the controller will be controlling (Level), 4) then choose the min/max (off/on) parameters.  Min = -116 (or whatever you need) and Max - 0.0 (or whatever level you want).     

 

I'm away from my helix so I hope that is mostly right.

When a block is OFF... the clean signal goes through. Just like a real pedal in the real world.

If the drive is the only thing parallel you don't even have to turn it off. Just use the footswitch to turn down the SEND LEVEL (within the split block) to that path.

Also another option.  So many paths to choose (no pun intended) that it really just depends how you want to approach it.
