    The new Klon has true bypass also (option with a switch) wich should be perfect for Strymon Timeline owners.

    I definitely want a Klon and will buy the new unit when it hits the market....

    As I understand the buffered bypass of the original Centaur was interfering with the buffered bypass of the Timeline....am I right?
    Or was it the Centaurs signal itself?

    :huh

    I'm genuinely curious how a high impedance input, low impedance output, unity gain wideband amplifier (description of a buffer) would cause interference with other devices from a technical standpoint. Especially how some buffers would do it, but not others. I'm learning a bit more about pedal design and want to make sure I understand this part, as I'm currently baffled.

    From what I read, it was the charge pump that was causing the heterodyning issue.

    Yeah, nothing to do with the buffers, but with the klons power supply design

    Gotcha. That makes significantly more sense.
