    I want to create an audio matrix so I can have 8 stereo effect devices in parallel.

I need something that takes...

    Here is my DIY Arduino based MIDI foot controller for Axe-Fx

    Bug? 1.5dB loss when using the fx loop with a pedal? 3.02 Beta

    Plug the connector cables from the loop out to the loop in. That's right - do the effect loops without any pedals connected. See whether you lose signal when there is no gear connected, but simply the 1/4" cables out to in. If you have signal loss then, you probably have a bad cable.
