Run your pedalboard in mono, dual mono, stereo, wet dry or wet dry wet. All without patching.
Custom Pedals like this one are built to order and therefore come with a lead time after purchase. Currently the wait time for this junction is an estimated 8 weeks before it is ready to ship.
How does it work?
By separating your pedalboard into a dry section (overdrives, distortion, compressor etc) and a modulation / wet section (chorus, delay, reverb etc) we can use this WDW Junction to route your signal in a number of exciting - Yes, exciting - ways.
This junction has a dedicated Dry, Left (wet) and Right (wet) output. Since you can use 1, 2 or 3 of these outputs independently or simultaneously it means you can choose to route your board in any number of ways.
Furthermore you can mute your dry output (for instant access to ambient sounds) and use a master mute to kill all signal leaving your pedalboard.
The Master Mute is great for tuning silently or changing guitars quickly and quietly.
More details below in the 'Manual' section!
Output Section: You can choose to stick with standard 1/4" outputs on the Left, Right and Dry outputs.
You can also choose to add LongLine balanced outputs to any of the 3 outputs. This means you can run straight to the sound desk, bypassing any on stage DI's.
You can also use RCV (a passive product we offer) to send signal up to 300' to your guitar amp. RCV then converts the balanced signal to unbalanced 1/4" and into your amp input.
LongLine XLR outputs come standard with ground lift and phase toggles and a mirrored unbalanced 1/4" outputs.
NOTE - We cannot fit more than 1x balanced output in the WDW box pictured. If you opt to get 2 or more XLR outputs, your junction will be built in a box measuring 5.72" x 4.77" x 2.22" (145mm x 121mm x 56mm) instead of the pictured box (115mm x 90mm x 51mm)
Ground Lift and Phase Control: Separately to the LongLine outputs you can add an isolation transformer to one or two of the outputs to correct against ground loops and phase issues between amps.
If this is something you find confusing (do I need it or don't I), a good way to look at this is if you want to use 2 amps at a gig, get one transformer. If you're happy to drop to one amp if you get a ground loop / phase issue at a gig, don't get any transformers. If you're happy to drop to two amps at a gig if you get a ground loop / phase issue, get one transformer.
You need one less transformer than the amount of amps you want to use while playing.
This doesn't necessarily apply to amp simulators as they typically send to a DI which has ground lift built in (double check your DI to make sure). Therefore you wouldn't necessarily need a transformer in this box as well as the DI transformer.
Manual & Specs
Plug your guitar in here. Simple.
From the input signal is then sent to two places:
a. Tuner out - Use this jack for an always on tuner output. Your tuner will always be tuning weather your signal is live or muted.
b. 'Board' - This jack is typically used to send signal to your first pedal. Usually a fuzz, compressor or overdrive.
After your last dry effect (maybe your last overdrive, volume pedal, distortion) plug into this jack. Signal is then going to be sent to two places:
a. 'D.Out' - Plug your dry amp into this jack. If you don't want a dry amp for a gig / session, simply don't plug anything in!
b. 'To.Wet' - Plug your first modulation/wet effect in here. After this first wet effect you can then use it's outputs (or a later pedal in your wet chain) to split your signal to stereo.
'L.In' and 'R.In':
These are your Left and Right inputs. From your last wet effect in either mono (use the L.In jack) or stereo (use both L/R inputs) you can now complete the patching of this box. From the Left and Right inputs, signal sends straight through to the other side of the box!
See 'Summing' for more info on how you can access summing options on your WDW Junction.
By default, your WDW Junction will ship in Stereo Sum mode. When summed (pushbutton IN) the Left and Right inputs will be summed/merged and then sent to both outputs.
If you want to access Split Sum (the right input is muted and the left input is sent to both the Right and Left Output jacks), open up your WDW Junction and flip the DIP switches according to the directions on the PCB. This PCB is attached to the Left and Right Input jacks.
NOTE: Regardless of the mode you choose, stereo (pushbutton OUT) operates the same. The left input connects directly to left out and right in to right out.
There are three outputs on the WDW Junction:
a. 'L.Out' - This is directly connected to the 'L.In' jack when in stereo. Connect this jack to your left amp.
b. 'R.Out' - Similar to the Left Out, the 'R.In' jack connects directly to the 'R.Out' jack. Connect this to your right amp.
c. 'D.Out' - This output will only receive signal from the first half of your pedalboard (dry effects only). Connect this jack to your dry amp.
You have the option to add a transformer to your right and/or dry output. This will add ground lift and phase (isolation) to these outputs.
You can also add LongLine (balanced XLR outputs) to the outputs as well.
LongLine Outputs *Optional*
This is a great option if you plan on using an Amp/Cab sim and want to send balanced (XLR) outputs to FOH.
Alternatively, you can ALSO use LongLine outputs in conjunction with RCV to send signal to your amps up to 300 feet away in an isolation booth. Crank that amp as loud as it goes without getting any noise complaints. What a dream!
You only need to get LongLine on the outputs that are relevant to your rig / gigging situation.
Isolation - Ground Lift and Phase *Optional*
If you run more than one output at the same time you have the possibility of running into ground loops (a loud hum in your amps/lines) and phase issues (when frequencies between amps fight each other (not literally - that would be crazy) and cancel each other out). Two amps that are out of phase typically sound honky - like a Goose has gotten into your rig - and the low frequencies will be diminished.
Although FOH (the sound engineer) can fix phase issues at the sound desk for direct lines, it is harder to fix phase issues between mic'd amps.
If you plan on running more than one amp at a time for gigging purposes, you should strongly consider getting the added transformer to protect against ground loops and phase issues between your amps.
A good rule to abide by with isolation / transformers is to get one LESS transformer than the amount of amps you will want to use live. If you want to use three amps live (and not have to cut an amp or two if you get a ground loop / phase issue) then get two transformers. If you only really need two amps live, get one transformer.
Worst case scenario. You decide to get no transformers / no isolation, you show up to a gig with 3 amps and get a ground loop. If you can't lift the ground on two out of three amps, you will have to go back to one amp for that gig. Same goes for phase issues.
If you select LongLine outputs, ground lift and phase are included in the price by default for each LongLine output.
There are two footswitches on the WDW Junction:
a. Master Mute - Use this switch to mute all signal leaving your pedalboard. This is a great option for tuning, setting up, re-patching or to quietly put your guitar down and tell the drummer he's drowning out your solo.
b. Dry Mute - Use this switch to mute your dry output only. This is a great option if you want to hear wet effects only for things like ambience or overly saturated guitar parts.
NOTE: If nothing is plugged into the dry output the dry mute switch will not do anything.
These are designed to last and come with a 2 year warranty!
