I read a lot about the MXR M198 Dual Loop Box before ordering it. It says "runs 2 parallel effects loops", "run separate series/parallel effects loops", "run two separate parallel effects loops" and so on.
I was exactly looking for two parallel effects loops, so I thought this pedal was perfect.

When I ordered it and tried it out, it turned out to have serial effects loops (return of the first loop goes into the send of the second loop). At least that's what I would call a serial looper. Parallel would mean that the clean signal is first split after the input, then goes to both sends and the return signals are mixed at the end just before the output.

Am I getting something wrong? Or is there a possibility to change that behaviour? Already asked MXR but didn't get a response yet.
Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad English...
