Hello All,

I know there is a lengthy thread on these Sans Amp clones, but I was wondering if I could bounce an Idea off you gurus on Pedal tweaking...

I have a Setup running a British Sound into the Joyo D-seed Delay (Mono Version). I am not running an amp and recording direct into my DAW.

I have discovered that the D-Seed is not happy with the drive level out of the JF-16 and is randomly distorting... which is quite annoying...

I have been messaging with a Joyo rep, who confirmed with the engineers that this could occur on the D-Seed Version I.... well, that is a poor design...

So that brings to question: could the British/Oxford/American/AC Tone/etc be set up for an effects loop?

Looking at all the schematics posted in the "Tech 21 Character Series" thread over here viewtopic.php?t=6571 I was looking for a possible insertion point for an effects loop.

Having built a couple tube amps in my day, the normal place to put an effects loop would be between the Tone stack and the Phase Inverter

Looking at the Tech 21/Joyo schematic, Would it be possible to insert the Effects Loop After IC3A, Where R44 lives?

Thanks for any ideas, comments, or insults

I had asked about the fx loop idea in the joyo actone thread. Apparently it puts the EQ controls after the loop, which is far from ideal with these pedals. Not sure how tech21 implemented it in the deluxe variants.

Also the joyo versions dont have a lot of output when compared to the original tech21 versions, it mostly around - 10dB on the joyos, it shouldnt be able to distort the Dseed input easily.

Theres not much interest left in these now, thats why not much responses so far. But if joyo were to release the leeds & US metal variants someday then perhaps maybe the collection would be complete.
