SO…. you’ve got a pedal you want to use in multiple functions, all over your board, in your amps effects loop, in the loop of your Skrecho, TIMELINE, etc. Similar to the flip flop, but slightly more complex: the dropout takes a pedal that you have in your loop (amp loop, pedal loop, etc) and drops it out of that loop and onto your board. so use your blue sky to etheral bliss in the timelines loop, and than the next song you need it AFTER your timefactor for some crazy shimmer action.
or your M9 for some effects loop action in your amp, and than you need it for some phase pre-amp. BOOM. Dropout. volume pedal on your DMMTT effects loop and for swells next section of the song? Dropout. get creative, have fun, replicate studio type effects LIVE.
The approx build time for a Dropout switcher is 1 week
