Boss Delay DS-3 issue
 
Hey

I am having a problem with this pedal i bought today. I can't get it to light up and give output in my pedal setup..... how ever the pedal does work this is what i tried:


Guitar > Delay > amp = Worked.


Guitar > ISP > TS9DX > Maxon Pro9 Compressor > Delay > amp = no sound, no light up when i push the pedal either.

What causes this ? Is this suppose to happen ?

Also i have not yet tried it in my amps effect loops (i know it should be post pre amp ideally) but i wanted to just test it out for any faults before i sort out the loops...

Any ideas why ?


p.s If i remove the delay pedal so it ends up with:
Guitar > ISP > TS9DX > Maxon Pro9 Compressor > amp i got a good sound out of it so the sound does carry through.

A problem with the extra patch cable perhaps.

I thought that too but i used a patch cable that i was sure worked (swapping them around etc) still cuts off on my delay pedal =/

The Maxon CP9 Pro compressors do funny things with the input voltage. I think they boost the 9v input up to 18v and then split it internally into +9 and -9 voltage rails. Connecting the output of the compressor may be playing funny games with the power for your delay as i suspect it only uses +9 volts internally (like most pedals)

Try putting the delay before the compressor, as an experiment, and see if you have the same problem
