Hey rockers

I have a question

If I have tube combo/head with 2 or more channels

I would like to use clean channel with distorion like satchurator for solos and 2nd dirty channel on combo with overdrive (like Ice9 ) for riffs etc.
all are true bypass switchable

If I will play on 2nd channel with overdrive and will switch FS and satchurator both at the same time will I damage my gear ? and reverse : clean channel + distortion satchurator then 2nd channel + overdrive ice 9

Is this possible ? Is this option usable ?or just in my mind ?
maybe it is but with midi footswitch right ?

Thank you for answer this question and some tips how can I do it this!

Are you trying to switch channels and pedals at the same time? You could get a footswitch that comes with the amp to switch amp channels or an AB box if they have separate inputs. You can't switch pedals and channels at the same time unless you have some sort of effects loop or something and I doubt it's worth it, just press two buttons instead of one. I doubt anything you would be doing could damage the amp in any way.

YES
but not clean channel + distorion + 2nd channel + overdrive

but clean + distorion = 2nd channel + overdrive

I still don't really understand what you're saying...

He wants to run a dirtbox on his clean channel and an OD on his dirty channel.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

What gear are you using?

Look into multi switchers/FX controllers. I don't have experience so I can't really say who to look for. I know JHS makes them, but I also found out that they're bastards....

On my HRD, I set the drive channel where I need it for rhythm so I don't need a pedal with it. I can kick up the drive with either the more drive switch or an OD. I arrange everything so that if I need to switch to the clean channel but have a specific pedal on, I've got the pedal running before I make the switch and adjust my dynamics accordingly.

If your amp has 2 inputs, run the OD on your dirt channel and your distortion on your clean and put everything else in your FX loop if it has one.

yes and switching between them during playing without dance

for now I have tranzistor combo but this question is for my future gear which I want soon
