I think I have really tried them all. Every single one has stepped on the tone of the amp that I'm testing them with. I wonder why they can't make one that is truly bypass.
There are a lot of true bypass pedals.
Yeah I know that, but i'm talking about multi effect processors.
GT8 with four cable method is supposed to sound pretty decent.
Tried the 6 and 8 and when they are bypassed they still take tone away from the amp. Hoping the ten does a better job.
Just get/make a bypass loop. The buffers on most multi effects are terrifyingly bad.
Thats what I did for my entire effects chain. Whenever I want to hear my raw amp tone I just hit the bypass switch for the loop, and its done. The only thing I left out is my G-sharp, because that thing is in my effects loop and I don't feel like bypassing that.
