Is the ML5 capable of just merging the returns of three different pedals as indicated in the diagram below? In this simplified example I’m using three EHX Series 9 pedals. These pedals require the raw guitar signal to operate effectively therefore they cannot be in series. I need a switcher that will effectively just sum up all the returns and send it to the amp. If all the effects are turned off then no signal would go to the amp. If only two loops are on then only those signals (summed up) will go to the amp. This would allow me to use one, two or three effects at once or none at all.
I borrowed a friend’s Voodoo Lab HEX but as expected it doesn’t work since it really wants to be a series pedal switcher. It’s possible to use two pedals on the HEX since loop 1 is isolated but I need more than 2. Technically I need five pedals but to simplify the diagram I only included three to make the point.
