BUT IT DOESN'T PROVIDE GALVANIC ISOLATION TO CURE GROUND-LOOPS!

...which is the most likely cause of the unwanted mains hums in the OPS situation. The DTI box (or Cleanbox 2) do provide the necessary galvanic isolation.

The Cleanbox Pro is great for shifting signal levels between semi-pro/instrument levels and professional levels, as well as converting between unbalanced and balanced signal paths (in both directions)... So it's great for connecting a battery-powered pedal into the insert point of a pro console or interface.

But the input and output grounds are all connected together, so it's no use at all in curing ground-loops problems if the system has some!

Sorry for shouting! :oops: I just didn't want anyone to rush out and buy the wrong box for the wrong purposes!

Do! The SOS forums are a great place to hang out, get info, make friends and share random stuff. Hugh is a superb source of info (as are many other folks here also) and newcomers are always most welcome.

I popped by once to find something out about something. That was in 2004 ... :D

I can’t find your first questions, but the answers I gave were:
1: Yes, but ensure it is well lubricated first.
2: Only if the bass player has been powdered for fleas in the last three months.
3: Mine definitely did, but I don’t use it as much as I used to.
4: I would have it looked at by a specialist.

Hope that jogs your memory.

Another one of my probably unnecessary and pointless posts, but, I’d plug directly into the Muff, IME pedals, of any type, always respond better when they are connected directly to the instrument in question, they just seem to have more balls, and you can really play them.
Any attempt to go through an interface first or use a send of some sort always sounds very very weedy, IMO.
