Chain signal help needed
I have the following pedals and I'm not sure what order the signal should travel:
1 - Korg Pitchback Tuner
2 - Boss Bass Limiter Enhancer
3 - SansAmp Bass Driver DI
4 - EBS OctaBass octave divider
5 - EBS UniChorus
6 - EBS MultiComp Compressor
Any help with the chain would be really appreciated. Thanks!
not sure about the other 2.... I've had a love/hate relationship with compressors as I hate my dynamics being messed with... But a little compressor set well can go a long way for certain styles.
Best advice. Try it yourself, you may come to alternative settings that are suitable for you, or sutable for some of the tones you want to try. Only general rule seems to be tuner comes in first, so it can track the freuqnecies without alterations. Apart from that it's all up to your personal preferences and your creativity.
Experimentation is excellent advice! But nothing wrong with a blueprint for a starting point either :)
Yes, Int hat chase the chain you gave is perfectly valid. I'd also try the compression at the end, see which one you prefer and switching the octave and chorus could also be valid.
You normally want the compression at the begining so the effect acts over the compressed signal, or the contrary. At the end the compression acts over the effected signals making for a different feel. Just try it yourself to see what I mean :)
I put the Multicomp after my ocatve to control the overall volume. I've tried it several places and this seems to work best for me. The sound guy likes it to because he doesn't have to ride my gain.
With my octave pedal (MXR), I've always had the best results with the compressor before the octave pedal.
Actually I could use some advice too:
What is your preference, settings, reasons, etc for placement of your VT and MXR compressor (or other comp) pedals?
Right now my pedals are:
Micro Thumpinator ->MXR M87 Comp -> VT Bass (first one) ->MXR Octave ->VT Bass (2nd, for fuzz)
A lot of time I just use the MXR and 1 VT.
Sansamp last so you can use the DI :)
Thanks for all the help guys. Have been trying different config's as you suggest. Was afraid that if one was in the wrong part of the chain that something would break, but hasn't been the case.
Im currently experimenting with EBS multi comp-----Sansamp DI-----tube distortion----
if i were live then switch sansamp around..
funny thing is it also sounds good with comp at end after distortion.....
its really up to your ears no rules..
Some more nfo about your rig, and the sound you're gong for, and what you use the pedals forwould help, but in the meantime, I'd suggest trying this:
Comp or Limiter (not sure I understand the need for both)
