    Yes, I also never liked it stand-alone. But it has this blend knob that allows some of the clean bass to come through, and it might work as an afterburner for the VMT.

    I personally think the ODB-3 is underrated.

    Finally finished redoing my board bigger and evolved. Added are some pretty big changes the first being Changing to a Temple Audio Trio 28 Board..This thing is huge and I think some of my pedals make it look small lol. I cant see me getting bigger I still have some swap room on this one. Second biggest change is the way i deal with the signal.
    1. The Compressor and Lebass are first in line then it runs down to the KMA tyler which splits the highs out.
    2. The highs are then sent to an ML5 loop switcher under the board where i can midi select my loops. I did this so that the bass was always clean and the only effect it receives is compression and warmth from the Lebass.
    3. I have the Idiotbox Effects Landphil and the Kinnatone modded Rat in a loop with EQ2 to tame the rats and it is midi controlled so can be used in that loop without the Rats on.
    4. Alpha Omega Ultra is in a loop and is still a major part of my tone always
    5. The lunar phaser is a Loop and is midi controlled and can be used for in loop modulation (phaser, flange, chorus) and is awesome
    6. The black rat by Mosky is also in a loop and is at the moment a bit of a more driven fuzz pedal..It wont last but it fits nicely so it can stay
    7. The H9 and the Nemesis are sent to the effects loop of my amp via 4 cable method and the expression is hooked to H9 as this just works and is easy as using the expression for other things hasnt been needed.
    8. My amp is also controlled my midi (Darkglass Microtubes v2) which is super handy.

    The Morningstar MC6 controls it all with ease and the 3 button extension is a critical part of the setup. I still need to do alot more to program in the EQ2 as that pedal has a million uses including LPF and noise gate which means it needs to basically be porogrammed to every single midi change and that takes time to do lol. I also have a wild idea of using the EQ2 with different eq's based on which bass I am using. Programming my midi to work with which bass rather than what i am playing which is a wild idea but again shows the infinite depth of midi programming.

    Anyway this board is big, powerful and complicated to setup but the more time it becomes better and better with each hour spent on it. I hate tap dancing with an absolute passion as i have a size 14 foot and my feet like to stay on the ground holding me up lol so putting the effort into midi means 1 tap does what i need so so easily.

    The Tyler is another huge success for me as being able to keep that solid wall of clean bass is really great. It also means that everything is cleaner, less muddiness in the low mids and more definition. The other cool thing is how crazy you can get with driving the top end without having to compromise on a distorted bass.

    Anyway I have gone to far with this board and I know i dont have all the answers and my way is the best but it was great fun to build and theorise and the results please me daily so that is all that counts!

    That board setup is sick. TBH I can't see myself using such a complex pedalboard. Guess I'm a rather simple mind even though I like pedals and layers of sounds.

    PS. You should record a "rundown" video of your tone machine

    Quite some changes over the last months:
    - MetalCore was replaced by ODB-3 bass overdrive
    - Hartke Bass Attack 2 preamp was replaced by Darkglass B7K Ultra V2
    - The Drop and Noise Killer had to make room for the Darkglass Vintage Microtubes and the Hyper Luminal compressor

    yep I'm an EH fanboy hahaha. this feeds my sansamp PSA 1 rack through the sansamp effects loop. the rack and board are geared towards retaining a tube sound as best I can without the expensive high power tube amp. this setup goes to a QSC rack amp running 600 watts @4ohms and into avatar cabs 2x12 and 2x10...

    right on - the Chorus is just for mixing-up the dirt, and the Delay is for repeating the dirt

    Next update: the Darkglass B7K didn‘t work reliably with the small daisy-chained power supply, and the wooden board wouldn‘t hold a real power block. So I had to move all the pedals to a Pedaltrain Jr with Palmer PWT 08 power supply. As a side effect, there is some new,room for more pedals

    I won't call this a "pedalboard" but a "searching for a nice bass tone array" instead. :D

    The geographical orientation between pedals is all for tone's sake I assume.

    OFC, this way they get more 5G electromagnetic mind-control interference so the RAT sounds nastier. :cool:

    I used to have trouble with chord progressions until I started arranging my pedals according to the principles of feng shui. It really does create good harmony! :p

    Its been a while. Isn't this the cleanest dirty board ever?

    CleanDirt.jpg

    Bass -> Tuner -> OD -> Fuzz -> Comp -> Amp

    The cheap Thomann powersupply has started acting up, pedals switching off and on quickly at times. We can't have that.
    Soooo the VoodooLab ISO5 is back in business.

    If you had more room i would've slapped a chorus on it just to finish it off

    I have a love/hate thing with chorus pedals. Gave away my early nineties small clone pedal.
