Fashioned with a knob on one end of a wire and a clasp section on the other end, the Pedal Flex transfers your tweaks to the pedal below. They also have cable clippers and testers available. On the other side, there are two additional legs which connect to their counterparts on the first side only when the plug is removed from the jack. Here is my pedalboard with the Shifter Switch on the right: The way it's set up, my guitar goes into the Shifter Switch, and then another cable goes from there to my amp. Also saves wear and tear on jacks. The Planet Waves kit is as easy as cutting the desired length cables are pre-marked in foot increments , loosening a screw on the plug, inserting and twisting the cable and tightening the screw. As long as you keep the wiring intact especially the connections between J3 and J2, which still has to use the same lugs , it will work just fine.

This goes into one side of the balanced loop. With the RockBoard Modules you can hook up your pedals permanently underneath your board and have a central access point from your instrument and to your amp as well as for your power supply. Conveniently run a separate pedal chain through your amplifier's effects loop by using the second channel of the Patch Pad. I was thinking of making what kinds looks like an ableton controller: a matrix of soft touch buttons with leds that you can switch in and out of a chain in different orders. Y'know, a pedalboard with a patchbay and bypass loopers? During setup you would then run a stereo cable from the other jack in the balanced loop to the back of the amp. No more constantly plugging and unplugging the last pedal in your pedal chain and risking the loss of your effects settings from handling your pedals.
For those who use active guitars, it is particularly appealing. As a slight aside, despite my original intentions I only ever used two of the connections and ended up building another one with a pedalparts buffer in it and the jack connections on the side rather than the front so that I could mount it under my pedaltrain which I find to be a much neater solution. I have a pedalboard interface made by Dan This1smyne in a 1590A enclosure. Or it sounds terrible and I want to quickly try some new stupid idea. If yours is cheaper, you could get some sales. I'm guessing this is simpler than I'm making it.
On the other hand the stompbox useage provides incredible amounts of availability and choice. Please let us know if you need a longer run of the indicator lamp wire in the notes section at checkout.

The Patch Pad also has options for running external rack effects and 2-amp stereo set-ups. Please note that many of the featured images visible in category view were sourced off the internet. I've been dreaming of a solution like this for a while for my vocal looping. The access to the expression out on the timefactor is pretty tight. And ~yes~ the unit must be powered up for the input buffer to work, but the device does not need to be engaged. Everyone wants to be able to set up and get to the bar quicker.
But seriously, sometimes a small, inexpensive improvement, or two, can go a long way to freshening up your rig and making life onstage a lot easier. There needs to be a melding of the two concepts.

The system allows you to easily and quickly swap out the pigtail interface to satisfy whatever type of power requirement your pedalboard and pedal powering device s require! Thanks in advance for helping an electronics noob again. Includes all mounting hardware required for a professional installation. I know some need simple patchbay, 4 in 4 out. They are handing to have on a pedal board because you can not only change the order of your pedals as you stated, but you can turn on entire chains at a time.
That way I could arrange all my pedals in any imaginable order. That, or throw down tape markered-up with the effect names under the knobs. Each kit comes complete with all necessary hardware. I'm looking for some small mint tins so I can have picks on the board too. I can toggle and have my delays run in the loop or in front of the amp input - great if I use an amp without a loop. I haven't gotten on to the task of redesigning the board to incorporate itnyey.
