Dual Loop Stereo Parallel Blender (old version)

Stereo Parallel Blender, Dual Loop
This version is DISCONTINUED.
This is an all analog Stereo Parallel Blender that offers two independent loops and a dry blend as well and is able to handle signals varying from instrument level up to higher line level (~24Vpp max). All jacks are TRS. The device is compatible with mono signals as well.

Brief function explanation:
  • The signal is taken from the INPUT and is split into three separate signals.
  • One is send to Loop-A (SND-A), the other to Loop-B (SND-B) while the third is the DRY signal.
  • The signal from the Loop-Return (RTN-A, RTN-B) is then fed back to the circuit: first to the Phase Select section, then to the Volume section.
  • The two Loop-Return signals are then mixed together with the DRY signal and sent to the OUTPUT.
Phase reverse switches are available for both Loops.
Ground lift switches have been added on both Loops that may come in handy if you experience ground hum. They both lift the ground on the return jacks.
▹ The footswitch completely bypasses the circuit (true bypass).

 The device is also compatible with MONO signals, just note that if you plug TS jacks in the blender then the mono signal will only appear on the Left (L) channel of the Stereo Output.

---- Technical specifications: ----
▹ True Bypass (via analog IC switches, requires power)
▹ Supply Voltage required: 9V DC (center negative) [Do not exceed recommended voltage!]
The use of a regulated/stabilized power supply that can provide at least 200mA is advised. 
▹ Current draw: 190mA
▹ Internal voltage doubler provides the necessary Dual Rail voltage, for maximum headroom.
▹ Input signal level: up to ~24Vpp
▹ Input impedance: 10MΩ
▹ Output impedance: 100Ω
▹ RETURN impedance: 5MΩ
▹ SEND Impedance: 100Ω
Flat response on the whole span of the audio frequency spectrum.
▹ Max Gain: +6dB(V) (applied on the return signals and the dry signal as well)

▹ Weight: 0.560kg (aprox.)
▹ Enclosure dimensions: 145 X 121 X 39.5mm (similar to 1590XX type enclosures)
