In the last video I showed you how to set up your Sub Pro for a one channel output. This time we’re going to utilise 2 of the available 4 outputs of the Pro. I’m going to show you how, in addition to the sub octave bass you can apply a delay effect to just the upper three strings of your guitar.

Last time we used this electroharmonix pitchfork as a sub octave pedal to give the effect of a bass guitar doubling the E and A strings. And we’re doing the same again here.

As before one adaptor cable is plugged into the Sub Pro. And I did mention last time that this cable carries two channels. But because we want to both channels instead of using a mono guitar cable we’ll use a Y-split cable.

A Y split cable has a stereo jack one end and two mono jacks the other. All of these cables are available from the shop at

Let’s plug that the stereo end to the adapter cable

So let’s zoom in and have a check the the switches. As before the low E and A are switched to the left, routing those signals to output 1

And strings G B E are routed to output 2

Output 1, the white mono jack , is sent to the pitchfork as before -that will give us our octave bass.

Output 2 , the red, is plugged into this delay. A Way Huge Aqua Puss - great pedal.

If I turn down the volume on the guitar again you can hear the Sub Bass on the E and A and the delay on string G B E. To make this a bit clearer I’ve panned the Sub octave to the left and the delay to the right. You’ll hear the effect of both the Sub Octave and the panning if you use some headphone here.

let’s try another upside down back to front chord

This separation of signals from different strings means your baselines stay nice and clean, punchy and subby and the delay is only applied to your melody or rhythm parts here. And conversely your treble strings aren’t muddied by the sub octave

Once again you could choose any pedals and any combination of strings. I particularly like to use compression and overdrive on the treble strings. But octave up fuzz is great, dreamy reverbs on single strings are wonderful. Or maybe you’d just like to bypass the regular pickups entirely run a stereo amp setup directly from the Sub Pro.

In a future video I’ll show you what happens when you plug in two adaptor cable and how that splits the pickup in two giving you up to four outputs.
