I would like to have a true bypass loop that has :
input 1 -> send 1 -> return 1 -> out 1
input 2 -> send 2 -> return 2 -> out 2
there would be one footswitch to activate loop 1 and another one to activate loop 2. no problem until now.
I'd like to have a third footswitch that activates loop 1 AND loop 2. I'd also like to be able to press the loop1 switch when loop 1 and 2 are activated, and that would deactivate loop2, but loop 1 would still be turned on..
I'm quite certain that the last constraint definitely prevents me to use mechanical switching. So i'm getting curious about the ways one can do electrical true bypass switching, and if those who are experienced in that see a way of making what i'd like to do here..
I hope i won't have to use micro controllers to do something like this ..
Another question : with electrical switching, it's possible to use simple 1PST latching switches to control bypass? then the loud clicking noise disappears, right? that's a cool feature for me and adds even more to my interest for this problem...
