Active and passive splitters to split your signal right.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


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.

Passive Summer/Splitter

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

    Just received my buffered Splitter yesterday and it has made all the difference in the world in the quality of my signal . No high end or clarity loss any more going through the pedals I have. Thanks for a great product at a great price!

    I bought one of these to split the signal from my guitar between my PC and Amp.

    As a beginner I’m finding it really useful for practice with computer learning tools like Yousician and Rocksmith 2014. Programs where the simulated effects are terrible and don’t stand out enough for you to distinguish your own instrument properly.

    With the splitter I can turn down the in game guitar and dial in my amp. Instead of pressing and picking too hard to hear bends and legato techniques in order to hear them. I was fighting the guitar, now its more like caressing the guitar and it’s much easier to play. Plus it’s really obvious when you make a mistake.

    Speaking of mistakes. Initially as a newbie with my first pedal. I didn’t use a 9v adapter specifically designed for guitar which has reverse polarity to normal mainstream adapters. As I found out wrong polarity will damage many pedals including this one.

    I was sorted out in this case, Saturnworks customer support was exceptional. I thought it worth mentioning the power supply to avoid others making the same newbie mistake.

    I have the two-channel splitter with level control and switches and it’s RAD. All kinds of signal routing options! I use it ahead of all my pedals to keep a dedicated clean channel for recording. I use it on a channel in my loop-switcher to generate a separate output for sampled sounds. It’s well made and does it’s job admirably.

    I’ve been using the Buffered Splitter from Saturnworks for a few months now. I have to say the quality is second to none, and the price was very reasonable. I could not run my guitar rig as effectively without it, as I need the guitar’s signal split into two different and independently controlled paths to separate amps; each signal path has it’s own effects. There is no signal loss or degradation, and I’m very happy with everything about this!

    I have been researching splitters for months now reading stories of tone loss or hum due to mis-match in input impedance running different guitar amps at the same time. I was starting to come to the conclusion that a certain thousand dollar splitter was going to be my only option. Then I figured I would screw worrying about the impedance until I was sure there was even an issue and just focus on finding an active splitter. That’s when I came across your company and figured I’d give your four way active splitter a try. I received it in the mail yesterday and took it straight to the studio to try it out. Running three guitar amps at the same time sounded amazing with no loss of tone or impedance issues what so ever and all for less than $100. I will definitely be spreading the word.

    Works perfectly for my Michael Kelly Hybrid Special with stereo output. allows me to run separate inputs into my HD500x, with two signal paths, to separate L and R outputs to the board.
    Price was great. Shipping charges were extremely low. And it arrived less than a week after I ordered it.

  7. Joseph

    The Pan Pedal splitter is great. I use it for taking the mono signals of various instruments and placing them at different pan positions before recording them into my Boomerang looper. This ultimately gives me much more separation and three-dimensionality within the overall stereo mix.

    Bryan was extremely helpful and accommodating!

  8. Jeremiah Ray

    I ordered both a summing amp and a buffered splitter from here and boy oh boy were they just right! I run a two amp rig on my bass – one clean and the other with effects. That buffer circuit is transparent, powerful and has just the right amount of push to hit my clean amp and make it boom and to hit my dirty amp and make it shred. It was like taking a blanket off my tone. Quite possibly the best pieces of kit I’ve ever aquired. There will be more additions from Saturnworks in the future. The build quality is top notch and the price point is extremely affordable, especially when you consider that everything is made by hand.

    I use my Saturnworks Passive Splitter to split my pedalboard signal after my gain pedals (treble booster, fuzz, wah, volume and EQ) – one side goes to one of my two Marshall 6101’s and the other side through the modulation and time pedals (rectifier, reverb, phaser, flanger, multi-FX, delay, looper, recorder) to the other 6101. No crosstalk, no hum, no volume control interaction, it works perfectly. Very cool for $19!
