Based on this diagram, what’s the point of this thing?

You either go through a loop of pedals or directly into the amp bypassing all the pedals? Meaning the Dingus is footswitchable.

But it’s not. It’s literally just a box with 4 jacks in it.

You need the actual items instead of the diagram haha just kidding. The dingus can be whatever you want, like, say, the Diane Keaton Clothing Collection at Cracker Barrel!

Seriously, though, you have a valid point.

Oh wait. I think I figured it out. I think this gets connected to the VL pedal board (or any pedal board) and allows you to have quick connections for in and out.

It's called a Dingus, because anyone who didn't already have the ultimate switchblade ... the Boss LS-2 is a dingaling.

So really instead of plugging into the first pedal of your pedal board and hooking up the last pedal to the amp, you plug into this directly and out of the Dingus to the amp. Why? I don't know. I guess it looks cleaner?

Did you intentionally omit the other 3 diagrams with more complex signal paths?

Oops. I didn’t swipe far enough to see those ones, but even still the only one that makes any reasonable use of this thing is the last diagram.

Looks like the only point of it is the 'easy access' they talk about on the voodoo labs page linked above. So, maybe, someone has a pedal board where the layout makes it difficult to get to the places where the guitar and amp connect. They could add this box at the edge of the board, and run short, tied down or hidden cables to the right places. (It's just a pair of 1/4 inch "thru" connections.)

It's a mini patchbay. Could be useful. I have some quick connects on the side of my board to keep things clean. It's great if you want the beginning or end pedal somewhere not on the edge.

I also used a similar box for quick connect or bypass for effects loop. If you are using wet effects to the front of the amp, you bypass the patchbay. If you are using the loop, run cables from the patchbay. Saves you from having to disconnect stuff from the board, which can be a pain.
