Paramix - Best Effects Loop - True Mixer with Phase Correction


Standard usage is to mix any percentage of effect with the dry signal.

The phase switch ensures that both signals at the mix are in phase with each other.

If the effect is a delay or echo, you can use the “Kill Switch” feature to cut off the signal to the delay or echo and still preserve the “tails”or “repeats”at the mix stage.

It allows you to decide exactly how much wet and dry signal you want. No Ratios. This is a great way to Mix full-blown distortion with the gritty attack of your dry sound for added clarity. Or, just inject a little shimmer to your tone by adding in just the right amount of chorus or phase.

A new feature of the ParaMix is the Insert jacks in the dry signal path. With nothing plugged into the IO (Insert Out) and II (Insert In) jacks, the dry signal passes directly to the mixing stage, IC1B. When an effects pedal is plugged into the IO and II jacks the dry signal passes through the effect before reaching the mixing stage.

The correct type of jack must be used, these are mono jacks with a contact switch.

Probably my favorite is to use a delay and fuzz/distortion in the loop. This will thicken the sound.

Bass Players can use this with any DIY or Commercial Pedal and not have to worry about Modding it for Bass! Mix in as much Dry Tone as needed for Bottom end and Rock out with the bass on any pedal you like!

Set a small time delay (10mS to 30mS) and no repeats, and the effect will “sit behind” your clean signal.

How about plugging your Ipod into the return jack and mixing your Jam Tracks with your Guitar for the perfect practicing tool!
