    I have a boat load of pedals and just ripped apart my board and now I am somewhat sad.....................in no order:

    Cusack screamer bass
    Sub T
    Dispatch master
    Sex drive
    Schism (just in case)

    It's just turning my head into mashed potatoes. I know YOU REALLY HATE THIS QUESTION, but ideas??

  2. Maybe write a number beside each pedal ordering them from the one you use most to least. Stare at it awhile. Something might spark. Best of luck.
  3. Sell them all, buy a modular synth.

    PDX, OR
    owner, OVNIFX and OVNILabs
    Put all but one of them away in a box in the closet, for a week. Just use the one. Then at the end of the week, put that one away in the box, and pull a different one out, and use just that one for a week.

    After fifteen weeks, you should have some ideas. :)

  6. Or, you could hire a bass tech to do the switching out back. Providing you don't have too bad a case of G.A.S. :D Ah, it's times like this a club circuit bassist can be thankful for the big money we make gigging......

    I wrote this super cranky. I have been in the game long enough, but I just was like ***!!! I just ordered a Duality so..................adding that and taking away the wooly(cloned).

    I also had to pick up a one spot after the PP2+ got full so I do like the idea of one for a bit adding and getting a solid foundation. Thanks for the laughs and suggestions.

    You all are FUN!!!!!!

    I am in recovery and have leapfrogged my addiction :bag:

    so after a few hours

    Polytune>BDPG>Schism>Submarine>amp (dig this cleanish)

    loop1 Sexdrive>Sub-T>P&C>Wonderlove (FUN FUN another od-distortion will go in here too)

    would eq after the wonderlove give me some benefits??
    thoughts on delaying the funk/synth or the clean??

    ridicule as you see fit :D

    I second parallel processing! Personally, I like having one channel that carries my subtle/organic effects and one that has my filters, synths, and other craziness. My wounded paw blender is nice cause you can switch from parallel to series... Allows you to have a lot of versatility.

    You know when I first started all this blending idea, the wounded paw was up on my list. I liked the parallel / series switching...... Maybe selling a schism........
