Do I have to power my effect from the relay bypass stomp?
« on: February 21, 2017, 12:43:02 PM »
Hi All.

I'm boxing up a Pork Barrel with an outboard clean blend.  I really like this chorus effect and want it on my board, so I definitely don't want any switch pop.  I was thinking of using a GCFX Lumen relay bypass for the stomp, but - just due to the way I've got everything laid out - I'm wondering: can I power the Pork Barrel and the Lumen straight off the DC jack and power the blend circuit off the Lumen?  In other words, will the relay bypass still work properly if it's only connection to the chorus effect is the PCB IN and PCB Out? 

Sorry if the answer is obvious.  I've had mixed results with the Lumen circuit so I thought I'd try to get advice up front this time!

Thanks!

Yeah that should work as long as all the boards share a ground connection somehow.
