    I'm wanting to build an overdrive pedal with a knob to blend the clean signal back into the overdriven one. (Like the Sparkle Drive) Should I put the blend before or after the level control? I'll be putting a buffer in the clean signal that is being blended.
    Before the level control seems correct?
    Am I wrong?
    Thanks in advance!

    The only schematics I've seen for a blend have tied in before the level knob.

    I´m looking at an old digital reverb rack effect from where I am sitting.The last knob says "output".The one before that says "direct/reverb.It is as Justin says.Blend them first to get the right sound,then set the output level.

    Alright that makes sense!
    Should I include an effect level AND master level? (controls would be Gain, Tone, Effect Level, Clean Level, Master level)
    And do you have any of those schematics?
    Thanks!

    Found this schematic a while ago and thought it was interesting.
