    I'm way new to the synth pedal game and wondered if I could ask TB for some helpful hints regarding this pedal

    There is a PRETTY LONG thread on it if you search for it. I'm too lazy to do so right now.

    Thanks...tried the search on my phone but didn't turn up much...

    I'm sure that its going to take some time to learn...

    Quick thought...where in my pedalboard should I place it?

    Currently I go into a TH pedal>Octave>Envelope>Comp>VT Bass>Chorus

    I put mine pretty early, always flipping before/after dirt.

    Hope I didn't come across as snippy earlier---not my intent. Here's the link:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f36/markbass-super-synth-549766/

    I run it early, as I would almost any pitch detection. The only thing I sometimes run in front of it is a comp---dirt should definitely go after to be useful, if it goes before it wouldn't come through except in whatever "dry" signal you're letting through (usually very little for me).

    I'm not a Markbass synth user at all, but surely and envelope or synth pedal would be better after dirt? Distorting, or overdriving, such a signal with strong resonant peaks usually sounds mirky to my ears, with the occasional frequency cutting right through.
