The Xotic Pedals X-Blender is a unique tool for the modern guitar / bass player. It's a switch-able series-parallel loop unit. A parallel effects loop allows you to mix or blend the effects with a dry signal (unaffected signal), creating a far more complex tone from your guitar.

The problem of signal deterioration when playing through a chain of effects is often an issue. Because of the narrow dynamic range and multiple filtering, some effects greatly disturb the directness and trueness of the guitar signal.

Pro-audio mixers standardized "Aux send/return" function to help solve this problem. This preserved the integrity of the guitar's signal and dynamics by feeding the effect with the signal separate from the main signal.

The X-Blender incorporates pro-audio engineering technology to solve the sonic imperfection some effects produce and was designed to be completely transparent. The difference will floor you.

 

Volume adjusts the main output only when the blend switch is activated. As the above diagram shows, the volume affects both the direct and effect signal.
 
Boost Switch will give +6dB of volume boost. This function will only work when the blend switch is on.
 
Treble / Bass controls treble and bass of the effect signal. This two band EQ is activated when the blend switch is turned on. 
 
Phase Inv. Switch This function can be used with vintage type wah or vintage type booster effect. These devices have output signal that are normally out of phase, without phase correction the signals could not be combined properly with the DRYsignal.
