Hi all, I was recently having an interesting discussion about how the Duo stacks up against more mainstream digital multi-effects boxes such as the Line6 HX Effects, and it became clear to me that even very experienced users of many of these boxes who have tried the Duo won’t necessarily realise and appreciate how its signal routing is way better than most, if not all, its rivals. The ability to make any combination of:
- utility effects like the 2-way switchbox, ToggleSwitch4, CrossOver3
- the ability to merge multiple outputs into the same input
- unlimited parallel signal paths (well, only limited by available CPU)
surely puts it above many others in its class, and gives rise to innovative pedalboards, e.g.
Can rivals such as the Kempers / Fractals / HX etc. do this?
I really think this aspect of the Duo is way under-marketed. @MOD_Ronny perhaps you could consider making some YouTube videos which explain this?
By the way, if you want to see the full Duo vs. Line6 HX Effects discussion, I’ve linked it from Comparing the Duo with its rivals.
