The MOOSE can be patched in a number of ways. The Send socket is continuously sending the microphone signal. The Return socket is switched so that if a plug is inserted, the signal from the Send socket is cut and the signal is taken from the Return socket.

 

* Effects can be patched between the Send and Return sockets on the MOOSE. The entire signal will be affected by the effects. The signal sent to the Mixer will be boosted by the Footswitch to ensure that the audience hears your solos.

 

 RECORDING TRICKS.

 

* Effects can be plugged into the Send socket and the output from the effects sent directly to a Mixer. The normal output from your MOOSE can be connected as usual. This will allow you to run the effects in Parallel to the straight signal, thus enabling control over the balance of straight to affected signal. Equalisation and Panning can be separately applied to the two signals.

The Footswitch Boost will be applied to the straight signal only.

Please be aware that some manufacturers may reverse the phase of the signal from the effect unit so the phase may need to be corrected on the Mixer.

 

USING A PERSONAL STAGE MONITOR.

 

* A lead can be plugged into the Send socket and sent to a personal stage Monitor, and the normal output of the MOOSE sent to the Mixer as usual. The signal sent to the Mixer will be boosted by the Footswitch to ensure that the audience hears your solos.

 

* A lead which splits the signal two ways called a "Y" splitter can be inserted after the effects units. One side of the "Y" can go back into the MOOSE and the other side connected to a personal stage Monitor. Both the signal to the Monitor and the Mixer will have effects on them. The signal sent to the Mixer will be boosted by the Footswitch to ensure that the audience hears your solos.

 

USING YOUR MOOSE AS A DIRECT INJECTION UNIT.

 

* To use as a D.I. simply insert your lead into the Return socket and connect the output to the Mixer. For keyboards etc.. adjust your keyboard volume to suit the input of the Mixer. Active basses and guitars can be directly connected. Passive basses and guitars may sound a little dull unless an effect pedal is used between your guitar and the MOOSE. The signal sent to the Mixer will be boosted by the Footswitch to ensure that the audience hears your solos.
