Hall Of Fame Reverb: Using it for guitar and vocals at the same time

Question

Can I use the Hall Of Fame Reverb with guitar and vocals at the same time?

Answer

Yes, you can use the Hall Of Fame Reverb for two different signals at the same time. The Hall Of Fame has 2 Standard ¼” jacks – mono/TS with automatic mono/stereo Output connectors with 2 Standard ¼” jacks – mono/TS with automatic mono/stereo sensing.

Thanks to both signal paths, mono and stereo, you can essentially consider the Hall OF Fame as being two parallel reverb effects when both inputs are connected. With both inputs connected, whatever signal is coming in on the mono input will be fed to the mono output and whatever is coming in on the stereo input will be fed to the stereo output. This being said, this only counts for dry signals. For the wet signals, as with most reverb effects, the effect will mix both signals into a stereo ambience. This gives you a fully natural reverberation effect just as rooms or halls do in reality.

If you wish to connect a microphone into one input of the Hall Of Fame, you will need to use a mic preamp in front of the pedal, before this input. This will allow you to convert the XLR to a jack and will also increase the mic level (low level signal) to line level (high level signal). Additionally, you will be able to balance both volumes with the output level pot on the mic preamp: Guitar level on one side and mic level on the other side.

If your mic is a condenser mic, an external source of 48V Phantom Power would also be useful.

This FAQ applies in principle to every TonePrint pedal with 2 inputs and 2 outputs, such as the Flashback Delay, Corona Chorus, Vortex Flanger etc.
