Instead of buying a TRS "Y" cable for my OBEL I recently bought a 5-jack junction box to handle the splitting. This way I can continue to use my own mono cables and one TRS cable. I also have the option of going mono-direct into the amp (instead of mono to junction box to amp) which saves using one add'l cable AND allows for no interference btwn amp and guitar.
My Boss TU-2 tuner is first in the fx chain (after the junction box). When playing the guitar in the mono position (direct to amp), if tuner pedal is activated it is still reading the output of the guitar. So basically, when playing direct to amp I can still tune even though the tuner is wired through the OBEL. I though that the OBEL was supposed to be an entirely separate circuit controlled by the toggle? As described in the FAQ's, I've played around with the "effects loop after volume" swap and it hasn't impacted this issue. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

The on off toggle completes the circuit on the R (return) side of the TRS loop.

that's just a guess.
