    Hi All

    I've done a fair bit of reading about this but I'm still not 100% clear. I guess this might be a matter of opinion, so let me ask you guys for yours!

    My chain is currently like this:

    EBS Multicomp (TRUE)
    3Leaf GR2 (TRUE)
    Loop from GR2
    Boss OC-2 (BUFFER)
    MXR Bass Octave Deluxe (TRUE)
    SFX Micro Fuzz (TRUE)
    Xotic BB Preamp (TRUE)​
    Loop from GR2
    TC Elec Corona Chorus (TRUE)
    TC Elec Polytune (TRUE)

    The (wonderful) 3Leaf GR2 has the option to switch to be a buffered bypass, with the buffer coming into play after the effects loop (as far as I understand).

    Should I change the GR2 from TRUE to BUFFERED?

    I plan on adding a few more pedals soon (not sure yet, but definitely plan to include the new 3Leaf "You're Doom").

    Definitely interested if anyone has any comments about chain order etc.

    Thanks all
