Now you may be thinking it's not all that exciting but what makes this attractive imo is it can be added to any pedal with virtually no mods and only the cost of 2 switching 1/4" jacks. Assuming you're using a 3pdt, the send/recieve lines and even the 2nd LED can be wired directly off the footswitch and that's all there is to it."A new cool Amptweaker feature is the SideTrak™ effects loop. Several requests led to this extra effects loop that switches OFF when the pedal is turned ON. Since the TightRock makes such a good ‘solo’ pedal, it’s the perfect pedal to introduce this unique idea.
It can be used to add a compressor, chorus or chain of effects that will only be ON when you play clean, or use it to switch to another distortion pedal to use for the rhythm sound…all without having to hit more than one switch….it’s like having a built-in A/B box. A green LED alternates with the normal red one to indicate that the loop is active when the pedal is bypassed.
Another cool SideTrak trick is that if you only plug in the SideTrak SEND, and don’t plug in the RETURN, then that Sent dry signal can be sent to another amp…..meaning you could for example have the TightRock going to a 4x12 halfstack while sending your clean tones thru a Twin or some other clean amp. All this ability comes from two simple jacks on the side of the pedal!
All other features from the TightRock remain intact..."
This is the jack type used
