Question about new Germanium Compressor

Just got 2 of these bad boys. Hooked them up this morning and they sound wonderful. I have a question. When I connect them to my buss out snake like I have several of my other comps connected - my VariMu, Tubetech LCA2b, etc ... the bypass doesn't work on the Germ. When I swtch it "Out" no sound at all comes thru the compressor. "In" is okay - you hear the compressed audio. This only happens when I connect it to this buss snake coming from my console and the bypass switch on all my other comps connected to that same snake work as they should. I even switched busses and no matter what, when I'm connected in any way to that snake the Germ's bypass in the "out" position mutes the audio. One more thing - the Germ bypass switch works correctly when I go from my Chandler LTD-1 into the Germ Comp and plugged into a line input on my console. What's up?
