Signal routing to FX pedals

Some of you know that I just got new mixer (WZ4 14:4:2). I have three mono inputs remaining that aren't used and want to hook up a few FX pedals in a manner that's flexible. I've found a solution to do this sending any signal I want through them in a linear chain. What I would like to do is to have the flexibility to send any signal to only a subset of them.

Seems that's a tall order. An 8x8 matrix audio mixer might do that (at a price).

Another solution to improve flexibility somewhat is using a pedal router: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


I think I could squeeze out two signal paths with my current setup, but not three.

I suppose I could also get a six track one bus mixer just for FX, which again seems ridiculous.

How are you guys dealing with FX pedal routing?

Can't you just use Y jacks in between the stomp boxes so that you can grab the output at any stage in the chain?

I have a Whirlwind A/B/Y pedal. It works for the purpose it was created.

It's made for exactly that! It's for mono pedals, tho you could work something out! Been thinking of getting one myself.

Re: Signal routing to FX pedals

why cant you just plug things up as you need them? its almost as fast as making adjustments to sends as long as everything is easily accessible, maybe labelled for good measure.

personally i do all my hardware routing directly from my interface and mix ITB, but i have the luxury of 10 ins and outs, 8 of which are analogue, and i dont own much hardware.
