EHX has stepped up its switching game this year with the Switchblade Pro and Super Switcher. The boutique brand is keeping up that trend with the Tri Parallel Mixer, a device that’s both an FX loop switcher and a useful mixing hub.
As its name suggests, this compact unit features three independent FX loops that are run in parallel. Though it’s primarily a loop switcher, the device also doubles up as a mixing hub. You’ll be able to send a single instrument out to three amplifiers – useful for a large rig – and even mix three instruments into a single output.
The three loops are engaged by three footswitches, respectively. There are two modes of footswitch-toggling: AND and XOR. AND is the default mode which simply activates or deactivates loops. XOR, on the other hand, works more like a switcher. This mode ensures that when one loop is engaged, the other two are automatically turned off.
As you’d expect, the Tri Parallel Mixer has a large set of controls. These include master and dry volume knobs as well as three sets of loop controls, each with send, return, phase and EQ knobs.
