    it powers up fine, but my dry signal does not go thru it immediate after powering up.
    After I turn on the pedal my sound goes thru with delay fine.
    WHen I turn it off then the dry signal come thru

    anyone else have this problem?

    Your dry signal isn't heard until you turn the pedal on and then off?

    And I just tried the non buffered with no trails and when I switch to this I can not get any sound when the pedal is off.

    Sounds like the switching mechanism is faulty. You'll probably have to return it for repairs....

    I think it uses relays, so it could be more than just replacing the switch.

    If you bought it from a Canadian dealer, exchange it.
    Otherwise, I would send it to Strymon to be looked at.
