Splitters may be broadly categorized as either active or passive. Not sure which type is right for your setup? Check out our FAQ section for more detailed information on passive versus active splitters.
A handy little passive splitter/summer pedal that passively splits or sums signals — available in two or three channel versions.
Unlike Y-cables, which simply wire the jacks together, the Saturnworks splitter/combiner uses a passive resistor network to minimize levels interaction between channels.
TRS to TS TS Separator/Combiner
The TRS to TS TS separator doesn’t really split your signal. Rather, it separates the two channels of a stereo (TRS) signal into two separate TS channels. Basically a pedal version of a TRS to two TS y-cable. It can also be set up in reverse to combine two TS signals into a TRS signal.
Buffered Splitter, Bass Buffered Splitter, Splitters with Switches and Level Controls
The Saturnworks buffered splitter is the best way to split your signal. The Saturnworks splitter features two buffers, one on each side of the split. Since each output has its own buffer, your signal also stays crystal clear over long cable runs.
The versions with switches and level controls add (you guessed it) switches and level controls. The level controls only cut volume. If you’re looking to boost your outputs, the versions with clean boosts have discreet clean boosts circuits on each output to provide more oomph to your signal.
3-Way and 4-Way Splitters
Drawing on the same active circuitry as the buffered splitter, Saturnworks 3 and 4-way splitters takes a single input and splits it into three or four outputs. Each channel of the split has it own buffer, which means strong output signals and zero tone or level loss.
The 2:4 splitter splits two inputs to two pairs of outputs, using the same buffered splitting circuits as the 2, 3, and 4-output splitters. This version works great for splitting a stereo signal.
Pan Pedal & Bass Pan Pedal
Everyone knows how an A/B pedal works…camera one/camera two. How about a pedal that seamlessly pans your guitar back and forth between two amps? Say hello to the Saturnworks pan pedal.
You can set the knob fully counterclockwise for one output, fully clockwise for the other, or anywhere in between to blend the two. A Dunlop rubber knob cover makes turning the knob with your foot a breeze. The Saturnworks pan pedal uses dual active buffers for smooth panning across two outputs without tone loss. If you only have one amp plugged in, you can use the pan pedal as a buffered volume control.
New for 2018: the pan pedal now uses a unique ‘blend’ pot. Rather than criss-crossing each other like an X, with a possible volume dip in the middle, the blend pot maintains the outputs’ signals at full volume at the midway point. The pot also features a center detent, so you can easily tell when you’re at the 50/50 mark.
Saturnworks pedals are handcrafted in the USA with boutique-grade features, including:
- Solid cast-aluminum enclosures.
- High quality footswitches, where applicable.
- Quality Neutrik jacks — or premium Swithcraft jacks on the black versions.
- Active pedals run on standard 9v DC center-negative power.
Saturnworks pedals are covered by a 1-year warranty against manufacturing defects
