    hey y'all,
    I really like that Xotic BB+ Plus Preamp but if one were to use one in a switching system, how would one go about making it four jacks? Is that possible with that pedal? Thank you!

    Not following. Why would you need 4 jacks on a mono preamp pedal?

    I want to be able to switch both sides from a switching system. I'm not experienced with this much and have no idea if it's even possible I'm just wondering

    Very easy if both sides of the pedal are true bypass. All you'd need to do is disconnect the wire between the two 3PDT footswitches and put two jacks between them.

    The hardest part will be finding the room to drill the two holes for the new jacks.

    If you use self-shorting jacks for Right side output and Left side input, the pedal can be wired to feed right side > left side (stock) when you don't want to run it in a switching system.
