    "Something simple" - What do you want the controller to do, simple tap tempo and preset selection?

    Yes pretty much want to be able to program a few sets of sounds, and have a bank system so I can have different groups of times together. Also if I could also control the strymons independently and use the pedal to scroll through the presets. I’ve been recommended the boss es5 (seems maybe too much) and some of the disaster area stuff. Just was wondering who uses anything like this in real life. I of course trust the guys here more than other forums

    Since I also play guitar again, there is the need for two boards.
    I am piecing stuff together today but so far so good I think...

    On the bass board we have:
    • Your simple generic tuner. Main feat: It is black.
    • Totally worldclass compressor. Nothing beats this one.
    • Tight but fat fuzz a-la Chris Wolstenholme
    • Geddy OD, which of course also does Chris Squire and Dug Pinnick tone.
    • Tremolo! No bassist should ever leave home without one, imho! hahaha
    • Tube pre that fixes the dry and dead and empty and meaningless and dull and useless and lacking heft sound of any Warwick class D amplifier I may use. ;-)

    My tone with the Ric and Hyperjazz is nothing short of STELLAR now. Haven't tested it with the active basses yet.
    When the tube amp is fixed, the Le Bass will probably be used for D.I. applications only.

    -~-

    Then there's the guitar side of things. I use a Fender tube amplifier combo that has no reverb built in so the Trinity is always on.
    There's wah, overdrive, fuzz and overdrivefuzz. The Royal Jelly works well on bass too, but on guitar it really shines.
    Its organic blend of overdrive and fuzz, and the possibility to have two separate blends to switch between makes it grande.
    But sometimes you want your fuzz tone to sound dry and filthy, kinda like Jack White. For this flavor there's the plasma pedal.

    I still have to hook things up but the plan is this:

    Also, I strongly dislike any and all frequency modulation effects on guitar.
    They always sound overly cheesy - so I left those off my boards. Rock & Roll baby!!! To hell with the eighties!

    [​IMG] Well I have been at it again...

    b7ku sold hesitantly..AOU just is better in every way. Replaced with Source Audio Aftershock which so far has been a great bit of fun to play with. Still very new (got it mega cheap)..

    I also added the Source Audio Nemesis because it is another great fun bit of kit that I dont need. Totally dont regret it again was a bargain.

    I also added the Digitech Jamman to get into looping fun...still need to learn this properly and get the control switch going but I think it will be worth it.

    Lastly...was the silliest pedal I have bought.. the Darkglass Hyperluminal.. Bought because it was the Black limited edition. Still learning it but it does some cool things my Super Symmetry didn't that have sounded better than the SS so thats cool.

    I am also gathering momentum on a couple of DIY dirt pedals that will be super cool if i can pull it off.

    looking forward to the holidays and upcoming shows to have some fun with it all..

    Recently been jamming a whole lot of Tool for fun..One nifty little device has opened up a whole lot of fun for me.. The Evenmidi Pitchy that turns the H9 into a whammy pedal which for playing tool bass is a must have item. I kicked the looper out but I am happy to plug it in when wanted/needed. Played an outdoor show with the big rig and got excellent feedback from all except the guitar players who cry!! fun times

    I've decided that I hate the Nano POG. Looks like I'll be bringing my 8-string to certain gigs again. As for octave-down, I'm still trying to find something different than the ultra-trendy Boss OC-2. I've put the Digitech Bass Synth Wah on there for now. If you use it in mode 7 and turn the sensitivity and range all the way down, the control knob lets you dial in a sub-octave. You can't do the "octave only" thing that so many OC-2 users like, but I never do that anyway. This thing actually sounds way fatter than the OC-2.

    I'll post an updated photo if this configuration actually sticks for awhile. I still kind of want to pick up an MXR Bass Octave Deluxe. I really like the dual voices in that.

    National Holiday here in NZ today
    Going to pull the pedal board to bits
    There's something wrong with it and I also want to split my signal

    Splitting signal is nice, opens up a lot of new possibilities.
    Keep in mind though that some overdrive pedals inverse polarity on your signal.
    If your signal splitter can counter that, this would be great.

    Heres my current setup. Trying out a collaberation devices compressor.

    20191105_183345.jpg So far I really like it. Compared to my cali76 is not as dark which is good. And it has a VU meter. Ha ha

    mine is number 66 and first one he has sold into New Zealand.

    Not entirely sure what this means sorry

    I know the Diamond Compressor is different power that tampers with other pedals

    Someone that knows this shit I'm catching up with tomorrow so hoping things are sorted.

    If a pedal inverses polarity on the signal, it flips the output waveform upside down.
    When you blend that flipped waveform with the original output coming from the bass, the two waveforms cancel each other out.
    This will result in a complete loss of low end.

    The Mosquite Blender has its own fxloop with dry/wet mix plus a little switch to fix this problem if it occurs.
    The Fender ABY can switch between A/B outputs or function as a Y splitter.
    The Morley TwinMix has separate volume dials and can rejoin the A+B signals from the Fender ABY.

    I bought the Mosquite Blender (which is also an active buffer) after working with the ABY+TwinMix for a while, it is much easier and has a much smaller footprint.

    Time will tell. First real jam with the new comp tomorrow. The cali might just end up left in the studio.

    Update! Obviously I'm not a great photographer, so here's what you're looking at:

    TC Polytune 2 => Digitech Bass Synth Wah => Boss LS-2 Line Selector

    A loop of LS-2: Way Huge Green Rhino => Stomp Under Foot Civil Unrest => EHX Enigma Q-Balls

    B loop of LS-2: EHX Bass Clone

    After the LS-2: Source Audio Orbital Modulator => Markbass Compressore => MXR Bass Preamp
