On my MOD Dwarf if I connect the same output to both output1 and output2, the output on the headphone goes dead silent. It is like the 2 output channels are canceling each other out in the headphone. If I connect input 1 to both output 1 and output 2, I get nothing in the headphones. If I only connect to one of the outputs I get the stereo signal.
If I take a distortion pedal for example, and connect input 1 to it’s input, and connect output 1 of the distortion plugin to output2 while the direct signal is still going to output1, I get the sound of both, but if I connect in addition to this output1 of the distortion plugin to output1 of the dwarf, I only get the “clean” signal.
My use case is that I would like to have output 1 with cab simulation, while output 2 without cab simulation (so prepared for the signal to be sent to a power amp and cabinet). Ideally I would like to be able to pick which output the headphone is using (output1, output2 or output1+output2). So far I was unable to find anything that could help me with that.
right, and this is exactly what happens when I route both distortion to output1, I get only the clean sound on output1 and on headphone outputs.
However if I change the output of one of the distortions to output 2, I get no output on the headphones when both devices are in the same phase-shift setting, but i get output when they are in different phase-shift settings. Also please bare in mind that on my unit (I’m not sure if that’s how it’s supposed to work) but headphones seem to mix both output1 and output2 to both left and right on the headphone.
This also works with ANY plugin. As soon as I put in the same signal to output1 and output2, that signal disappears from the headphone output, so the underlying issue isn’t plugin specific. The signal also disappears from the headphones if I just connect input1 to output1 and output2.
ok I think I understood, thanks for explaining in detail.
doesnt seem like a software issue to me, but a hardware one. like a trace that gets where it should not…
please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and mention this thread so we can return your unit for a fix (or most likely a board replacement)
