Yes, It’s true that the remote is one cable unless you have other pedals that you want. In my case, I cannot live without the Cali76 deluxe (and therefore I also need a power supply). Even if I had the remote, I’d still need a way to power the power supply. With this mod, a power supply, and the Snake, I have the flexibility to add as many stomps as I want, but keep the same leads.
And yes, one lead from guitar to compressor, then the other lead is the pedal snake to the amp.
Don’t get me wrong— I’d rather have the Kemper Remote’s functionally. Thing looks nice. $$$
