With a pull release, the changer fingers usually are not evenly aligned. If you don't have enough space to tune the correct note, move the finger in by tightening the nut. Then retune the open stri ...

All you need is a small mixer. Keep using the Digitech for the steel and the DI for the keys. Use 2 channels of the mixer, mixer output to the amp.
