    Hey guys i like to run my chorus and delay at the same time which always reguires an awckward tapdance routine, is there a way to turn them both on without tapdancing?

    search TB for "bypass loop" pedal.

    edit: missed it by *that* much!
  4. Pedals that I use together are next to each other
    on my board. Thankfully its only 2 pedal and they
    are both BOSS so they have a big surface area
    to switch on/off.

    It's easy turning them on/off while playing. Don't
    get me wrong, I've miss one here and there.

    I'm moving to micro-pedals like mooer. I can hit up to 3 of them at once, but then I have a size 13EEE foot.
  7. I just arrange them so I can turn them on/off with one stomp.

    This can get tricky. I tap dance at times as well. It's something I almost need to practice to get it down just right. It's almost like singing and playing at the same time. An A/B selector like a boss LS2 would work fine I believe.

    midi switcher, but for a simple setup the LS2 would wok great as mentioned above

    running pedals in a loop and using a 1 or two channel switcher will achieve your goal

    Note the Radial Big shot on my board...

    it allows me to alternate between two very distinct dirt channels or run the both at the same time!

    The frozen north
    One Control Mosquite Blender - problem solved with smaller footprint and without Boss bypass tone suck ;)

    (Though the LS-2 is one of the less tone-sucky ones, and has some nifty extra features).
  15. very easy to make your own loops and can cost <$20 in parts.
  16. I've always thought tap dancing was a necessary technique that every serious pedalboard user needs to learn at some point.

    There is nothing wrong with the BOSS Buffer. If anything the LS-2 helps preserve tone as a result of being a buffered bypass.

    The LS-2 is one of the best products that Roland/BOSS has ever put out.

    At least in my experience. YMMV. Agree to disagree. Yadda Yadda Yadda.
