Wet dry mod
« on: June 05, 2021, 09:52:10 PM »
Hello!

Does anyone has tried to make a wet dry mod (that can mix with and without insert) with the pot front center back?
Please let me know about it if so :)

Thanks!

The idea is to desolder point 2 and point 3, and invert them. (red numbers on the attached files)
Then unconnect the wires that goes to LB and RB from the potentiometre (red cross on the attached schematic file)
and connect to point 1 (pre insert) (red number).

What do you think?

Why bother? This console is so flexible that you can do it with what you have. And if you want compression this way, buy a compresser with a mix control. And if you dont like the amount of compression, just turn it down.

In my way of working it would be a great improvement. Thanks for sharing your point of view :)

Do you really understand how compressers work? It seems to me that people who want to wet/dry mix them dont.

There are tons of applications in wet/dry mix. My English is not that good, so I can't explain it with all the subtilities, but it's all about envelope and tone. It's another trick to get different results that you would not obtain using only the output of a compressor. Some great compressors don't have side chain and the result is a pumping mix when you go too deep with the threshold. Some other compressors are eating the bottom end. For both issues, wet/dry is a cool solution...for me.
