..I've never used the loop on the Para DI....should I be?
http://www.pick-uptheworld.com/quackbuster.htmHow does the Quack Buster work?
1. The Quack Buster produces between 20 and 30% of the over-all signal (depending on the output strength of the saddle pickup), and captures a sense of 'air' as well as the wood & personality of the guitar. Saddle pickups do no do this because they are focused primarily on picking up the strings.
2. The Quack Buster eliminates the irritating 'piezo quack' of saddle pickups by temporarily absorbing the over-voltage spikes that are the cause of this type of distortion. This unique benefit is caused by the capacitance of the Quack Buster temporarily absorbing, then smoothly releasing the over-voltage spikes produced by the saddle pickup.
3. The Quack Buster improves feedback rejection by drifting slightly out of phase with the saddle pickup signal when the guitar begins to go into a feedback mode. There is no loss of detail or other strange artifacts caused by this, and volume levels can be typically raised by a factor of ten before filtering or monitor levels need to be adjusted.
