About the SIGNAL CHEYNE Sirius Parallel Blender V3
The Signal Cheyne Sirius Parallel Blender V3 is the unsung hero of your gigging rig!
Handmade in France, the Sirius Parallel Blender takes your signal and splits it in two, allowing you to keep your pristine dry signal while sending the wet signal through an effects loop. Use the loop to modulate, distort, delay - whatever you want - before it re-emerges.
The Sirius Parallel Blender V3 can also be used as an A/B channel switcher, an active Y-splitter, a volume pedal or a summer.
One awesome feature that shouldn't be overlooked is that you can use an expression pedal to control the Blend, making on-the-fly adjustments really simple and giving you full control over your sound during a gig. The Sirius Parallel Blender V3 is compatible with expression pedals that use 10K linear (B10k) pots.
Sirius Parallel Blender V3 Settings
The Phase toggle allows you to invert the phase of the loop, ensuring all pedals will play nicely by avoiding phase cancellation issues.
Active Y Splitter
To use the Sirius Parallel Blender V3 as an active Y splitter to run two amps simultaneously without any signal loss, plug the Output into Amp A and Send into Amp B. Set the Blend to 100% dry. If the amps are out of phase, you can use the Phase toggle.
Plug the Output into Amp A and Send into Amp B. Set the Blend to 100% wet. If the amps are out of phase, you can use the Phase toggle. Turning the pedal on and off switches between the two amps.
To use the Sirius Parallel Blender V3 as a volume pedal, don't plug anything into the Return jack and turn the pedal on. Use the Blend knob to adjust volume level.
Plug instrument 1 into Input and instrument 2 into Return. Set the Blend knob at 50%. Both signals will be summed into a mono out. This method can also sum stereo signals.
What's new in V3?
The third version of the Sirius Parallel Blender includes several improvements over its earlier versions:
There is no more bleed-through when setting the Blend knob to fully wet.
ESD protection was added to make the pedal more robust.
Current draw is lower.
There’s now a constant output impedance of 100Ω, wherever the Blend knob is set and there’s no longer a drop in volume when the Blend knob is 50/50.
You can now use 10k expression pedals instead of 100k.
