Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
You can't leave the tuner permanently on because output is always muted in that state. To avoid switching thumps from any device over the pa, just get into the habit of muting with the Orchid before doing anything at all with either the...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
That's what I was thinking and what I hoped you'd say! OK, so I'm set up now with the Korg tuner>Source-Audio EQ>Boss CE-5 Chorus>Orchid MDI. Sounds good through my acoustic amp. As you rightly say, the tuner does 'clunk' with...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
I can see that, John! Re-read my reply #11. When the Korg is "off", it's in "true bypass" mode and the signal is completely unaffected. The pickup is then loaded by the next device in the chain, i.e. the Source PEG which does have the...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
Sorry if I'm being thick (it happens more frequently than I care to admit! ) but, as the Korg tuner is 'true by-pass', this would mean that the 1 Megohm input-Z would only apply whilst the tuner is in the 'on' state? If that's the case,...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
I still think it should go:- Tuner > Source Prog EQ > Boss Chorus > Orchid MDI, but placing the tuner after the EQ probably won't make much difference.As said in my previous (edited) post, switching noise from any device won't...

I've spent a while this morning doing a temporary re-org of stuff on my board - I'm now trialling it with the pedal-order.....K&K>Source-Audio PEQ>Tuner>Boss Chorus>Orchid MDI>PA/Amp. When John's Micro DI arrives, I'll...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
Okay, and provided you always mute silently with the MDI first (as you would do in practice), no switching noises from any other device in the chain will be heard over the pa. The Prog EQ utilizes "dry digital" topography in which the...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
Just as an aside, on reading the owner's manual for the Source-Audio Programmable EQ more carefully, I've discovered that the input-impedance is 1 Megohm, perfect match for the K&K Pure pickup. I've also discovered that the unit has...

Re: AER Pocket tools Colourizer 2 (reply)
Schaapj123, did you know the boss tu-3 does not have the right ohm input for the k & k. Boss changed the input on th Tu-3. The tu-2 is a good match bit for some reason they changed the tu-3. Thought you might want to know that....

You know, I'd already had that thought, an FX-loop-type arrangement, for exactly that reason - but I wasn't certain that it made sense! I think I'll drop John an email and see what he could do. THhanks for the suggestion (and...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
Your system is still something of a dog's dinner, John: you want the Orchid MDI at the front of your chain, not at the end.Let me suggest a simple, elegant and economical way of solving all your problems at a stroke:-Haven't you ordered...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
LOL! Yes, I noticed that the tuner was slightly confused when the Chorus was on! I don't use it a lot, so I shouldn't have problems, hopefully. Thanks everyone, for the comments/explanations/suggestions/encouragement - much appreciated!

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
If it sounds good to you, John, then it is good. Ideally, the tuner should be placed before any fx pedals because the purer the signal, the easier it is for the tuner to capture the note. You can't put the Korg first due to its noisy...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
Well this is strange - I tried the Source-Audio EQ first in the chain, and wasn't convinced by the way things sounded, so I reversed it with the Boss CE-5 Chorus and, lo and behold, it sounded great! The input-Z of the CE-5 is 1 meg,...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
The Programmable EQ appears well suited to the job of fronting up your signal chain and, being designed for the passive magnetic pickups of electric guitars/basses, its input impedance is highly likely to be in the right ball-park for...

Re: Polytune floor tuner? (reply)
Wow - thanks for that, Kev! Now here was I, thinking that the TU-3 had the same input-Z as its predecessor (which was a good match for the K&K) and not realising that it's now out of acceptable range - it's a minefield, isn't it?!!...
