  • Y cable advice / splitter

    Heya, I need to run BOTH inputs on my lexicon pcm 80 stereo reverb + fx unit but only have 1 Line out on my amp ... Will a simple Y cable work to split the preamp output into both L/R signals for the lexicon processor, or will this cause Noise/phase cancellation issues etc...
    I aim use this for the "wet" in my Wet/Dry/Wet rig so will there be any problems ?? What If I tried running it serially from my mono FX loop, would the Y cable be ok there too ??

    Or am I better off buying an isolated splitter like a Lehle Line splitter for instance.. ?

    -Hard Ash Strat Amdusias set
    -JPM100 x2 PAF pro/Super D + Breed/Transition
    -Vigier Shawn Lane Aph1-n/Norton
    -Suhr SSS Strat V60/V60/ML Bridge (SSCII)
    -RG7 BKP Brutes

    Passive splitter should work fine. It's cheap enough to try!

      If you're going into two inputs on the same processor, you should be able to use a simple Y cable without noise problems.

      Rule of thumb: Always try the simplest, least expensive solution first.
