Use Audition to seamlessly audition a pedal in your signal chain or insert your amps FX loop without re-patching your pedalboard.
Since rewiring your pedal board is not something you want to be doing every time you want to try a new pedal, Audition allows you to patch in a new pedal without having to rewire your entire board. Also use Audition to integrate an amps FX loop without having to re-patch your board.
Signal Chain For Auditioning A Pedal
Audition can be placed anywhere in your signal chain. The first thing you need to decide is which types of pedals you will audition the most. If you are going to audition a lot of overdrive pedals, put Audition closer to the beginning of your signal chain. If you are going to audition modulation, delays and reverbs, put Audition closer to the end of your signal chain. If you are unsure, put Audition after your last overdrive and before your modulation effects.
Signal Chain For Using An Amps FX Loop
If you are going to be using an amp’s FX loop, place Audition after your last overdrive/dry effect and route signal as follows:
1. Last dry effect to Audition “In” jack
2. Audition “Send” to amp input
3. FX Send from amp to Audition “Return”
4. Audition “Out” to first modulation / wet effect
5. Last wet effect sends to amp FX Return
If you don’t want to use the FX loop, simply unplug the send and return jacks and plug the last pedal on your board to the amp input.
In this configuration you can still audition pedals as normal.
The push button is on Audition for musicians running Audition underneath their angled pedal board. Since a lot of angled pedal boards come with side panel jacks, you can now patch Audition into the side panel jacks and turn Audition ON to try a new pedal, or turn Audition OFF to bypass the side panel jacks and pass signal un-interrupted.
The power jacks on Audition are used to power the LED and more importantly to the pedal being auditioned. Plug in 9-18v on the In/Out side of Audition and use the a male to male DC cable to power the pedal you want to try.
NOTE: Make sure the power you send to Audition has enough current (mA) and the correct voltage for the pedal you want to audition. What you feed Audition is what will come out the other side.
Mono or Stereo?
Yes. You can use Audition in mono or stereo.
Mono – Use normal patch cables to patch Audition in.
Stereo – Use TRS jacks for all connections (In, Out, Send and Return) and you can use Audition to try out a stereo pedal! The white pushbutton will still work as normal to bypass the send and return jacks, or you can simply unplug the send and return to bypass!
You will most likely need a TRS to Dual Mono cable or four to use Audition in stereo if your pedals have standard L and R inputs and outputs!
We believe in providing quality products and services, which is why we endeavour to keep as many of the processes involved in building our products here in Sydney, Australia.
IMPORTANT – Use only 9vDC centre negative power! Current draw – 1mA plus the current draw of the pedal being auditioned.
Dimensions – 66mm L x 111mm W x 31mm H (including all jacks and push buttons).
