Wet/Dry setup with only one preset in parallel

      I am trying to integrate my H90 into my current setup and haven’t yet cracked the code. I use a loop switcher (the Mastermind PBC 10), with dry effects in loops 1-6 and wet effects in loops 7-10. The Mastermind has an insert between loop 6 and loop 7 that I use to tap the signal via a GigRig Humdinger, so everything up to loop 6 gets sent to the dry amp, and the wet amp receives loops 1-6 AND loops 7-10 (with all the effects in loops 7-10 set to kill dry).

      What I’d like to do is run my guitar into the H90 and designate loops 1-6 of the Mastermind as Insert 1 on the H90, and loops 7-10 of the Mastermind as Insert 2. That way, I could have 3 different options for H90 preset placement: before my gain section, after my gain section but *before* the tap to my dry amp, and as part of my wet effect chain. I find I get vastly different results placing pitch and modulation before and after dirt, and I like having that flexibility. I also prefer to have most modulation effects before the signal is split (i.e. sent to both amps).

      So far so good. However, I run time-based effects (reverb and delay) in parallel. The Mastermind has a line mixer for loops 7-10 which enables me to do this. This is where I encounter problems with the H90. As an example, I’d like to have a phaser from the H90 (Preset A) situated pre-Insert 1 and a delay from the H90 situated (Preset B) in parallel with Insert 2. But if I choose “parallel” as my routing option for Preset B (the delay), it runs in parallel with both inserts. What I want is for Preset A to process the signal, send it to Insert 1 and then to Preset B *in series*, and then have Preset B process the signal *in parallel* with Insert 2.

      Obviously I could use Dual Routing mode and run Preset A to loop 1 of my switcher, and Preset B to loop 7 of the switcher, but then I lose the option to move Preset A before or after dirt in my dry chain.

      I’ve included a diagram of how I’d like this to work. Please forgive my chicken scratch. Would love ideas on how I can make this work! Thanks in advance.

      Sorry, there is no option to have an insert in parallel with only one of the Presets, but I will log your request for this feature.

      You may find that Dual Routing is more flexible with your setup.

      Thanks for the response. Would LOVE to see this feature added in the future as it would really enhance routing flexibility! Unfortunately with Dual Routing I lose the option of shifting the location of Presets in my dry signal chain.

      If there are any updates on development of this feature, please keep me posted.
