Hey everyone. I recently posted this on TGP but figured someone here would know better if TF can be used this way:
I was just thinking about routing. I typically think of an AB-Y to switch between two amps, but has anyone used one into a timefactor? I've never even used the other input on mine. But I was thinking…you could run the A & B outputs of the switch into the two inputs, effectively feeding Delay A and Delay B separately. Set them both for different times, tempos, repeats, etc… then your AB-Y switches which delay is on when. Of course you can use the Y function to have both on at the same time, which is how the TF operates when using a single input.
The only other way to pull this off with a TF is to map an expression pedal to the A/B mix knob, but this would be instantaneous. Also you could run effects between the AB-Y switch and the TF, like a drive or a compressor, and only have that effect on a single side of the TF, but not the other…
Anyone else try any crazy routing with their Timefactor?
Also, if you run stereo in's, but a mono out, will Dly A and Dly B be mixed to a mono output?
your best way to have 2 different delays settings remains patching a pedal or MIDI CC to A/B mix. It's fast! This will also avoid problems in audio configuration as TF will not sound as you like with a stereo input and a mono output.
