Not really, as the BOOST requires that the BYPASS switch is enabled to affect the signal. However, you can use the OB.1 as purely a clean boost pedal by simply turning down the compression setting to its minimum knob position while engaging the BOOST as well.
The DIP switches allow you to select the Treble Shelf Corner and Mid Peak frequencies for the Boost.
Treble: shelf at about 1.5 or 2kHz switchable with internal DIP switches
Mid: peak around 800 or 1.1kHz switchable with internal DIP switches
OB.1 provides greater than 20dB of gain compensated compression. With the integrated clean boost, an extra 10dB of full frequency, mid or treble boost can be achieved.
For OB.1, we recommend a 9V battery (included inside OB.1) or any 9VDC center-negative power supply (not included). Some switching supply adapters (1 Spot) have been found to be a bit noisy with OB.1 and are not recommended. Our own Ojai and Zuma power supplies work well without additional noise in the audio.
OB.1 consumes less than 20mA of current.

All of the inputs and outputs on our pedals use MONO TS unbalanced connections. You can use a TRS cable to plug into the inputs and outputs of the pedals, however, there is no benefit to using TRS balanced cable over a MONO TS instrument cable.
