Actually the main reason I bought it is because of the layout of the pedal. I've been wanting a input/output "pedal" to put under the board for a while. This is how I use my SFX(under the board, first in chain after the bass) with the Timeline as the output to the amp. The fact that it is a buffer as well sealed the deal.
With my input/output and buffer situation taken care of, would the SFX be overkill? Is there such thing as over-buffering? Where would be a good place to put this in a chain? I feel like I will miss the filter the microthimp. This is what the chain will most likely look like(if it helps at all):
