Makes the job ...

Maizhang, 18.01.2015
Positive:
+ Can serve as "patchbay"
+ Fully Analog. (Traverses the sound)
+ Very light, one to limit fear to break it ...
+ Dust buffer well sound: with cable bcp the wire becomes capacitive (78 picofarads for 1 meter of cable sum for example) and act as a low pass filter ...
+ The boost function (with adjustable volume) is interesting.

Negative:
- the power-on LED on the side is not very practical.
- the price (yes anyway)
- noise filter: eats too much sound.
- different settings possible, but tend to eat the tone.
- Adjustable "Input Loading" input: can not be manipulated. Even with a tool, it's just a calvary.

Edit of 28/01/15:
- Important and valid for a lot of pedals => the nuts of the jacks Jack often lack of tightening. This causes mass defects (parasites, hum, etc.). One tip: checking the tightness of the jacks, potentiometers, switches of each of its pedals is the guarantee of avoiding galley lead to look for false problems of wiring, chaining ... etc.

Really really good !!!

Peter S. 436, 21.12.2015
I'm actually not so the pedal effects freak! Why! Because every effect between guitar and amp changes the sound and the really negative. But somehow you need other, additional sounds and then land on pedals. And then the compromise begins! One is constantly somewhat dissatisfied and the "drills" then constantly in one. I currently use a JHS Sweet Tea and a Weehbo Plexface, both of which run via a One Control Looper. Although only the One Control is directly in the signal path, the sound is negatively affected. Especially with clean sounds. From the search for remedy I am then hit on the Empress Effects Buffer + and was somehow impressed by the possibilities: effects in the loop, additional tuner output, switchable Boost controllable, FX noise gate, etc. etc. And I'm not disappointed! Important, of course, the refreshing of the original signal! And this really works very well. Certainly the direct sound is somewhat different, but with the Empress not worse. At the moment the One Control is running in the loop of the Empress, and a Korg Tuner is powered by the Tunerout. The boost acts after the looped effects, makes them louder and can then be used to adjust the internal lead channels of the amp. Really really good !!!
