      I'm really intrigued by the possibility of consolidating on a ModFactor
      and a TimeFactor. Between them they cover just about everything I need
      at a good price and a nice, tiny form factor. I've got a question about
      the ModFactor though: is it true stereo? Can I have one algorithm
      applied to *just* the left input -> left output and another
      algorithm applied to *just* the right input -> right output?

      I ask because when it comes to modulation effects I like to run some
      things in front of my amp (auto-wah, phaser for example) and some
      things in the loop (chorus, tremolo [although even this I'd like to be
      able to move around per-patch]). If the ModFactor is true stereo I
      could use one input/output pair for the "in front of the amp" effects
      and one input/output pair for the "in the loop effects. And then just
      setup my patches accordingly.

      I was thinking: Guitar -> ModFactor right input -> ModFactor
      right output -> front of amp. And then: FX send -> ModFactor left
      input -> ModFactor left output -> FX return.

      Can you tell the ModFactor that even though you're using left and right inputs and outputs, not to run the effects in stereo?

      Hi iaresee

      the way you want to use MF has really nothing to do with it being tru stereo. A stereo FX is something completely different from a dual mono configuration you are asking for. The other problem is that using the same unit on two different electical impedance circuits is definitely not adviced. A pre_amp position requires -10dB and an FX loop insertion a +4dB impedance. So the answer is no, you can't use MF in such way. Only the rack units can do this.
