Another effect order help question (sorry!)

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by BassWombat, Jun 16, 2005.


  1. I've been mucking around a little with my effects and trying different orders... but I just thought I'd check and see if the collective brains trust here might have some different suggestions!

    Here's the pedal selection:

    SansAmp BDDI
    Chunk AgentOOFunk envelope filter
    Demeter Compulator
    Unibass
    Prescription Electronics Experience fuzz/octave
    Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive (bass modded) - not getting much use since discovering how good the Experience fuzz is with bass.
    Ernie Ball Volume Pedal (with a TU2 hanging off it)

    I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts... (yes, I know it's really about what "I" like the sound of, but seeing as I'm still experimenting I'm open to any suggestions!)

    I'd put the Vol/Tuner up front, the BDDI at the end... so:

    Vol/Tuner
    Experience
    Chunk
    Compulator
    Unibass
    VooDoo Sparkle
    BDDI

    This keeps the compressor from messing with the ability to drive the Experience and the Chunk dynamically, but provides the Unibass with a solid signal. Some folks find that the compressor causes problems with controlling downstream effects. But I would also try this:

    Vol/Tuner
    Compulator
    Unibass
    Experience
    Chunk
    VooDoo Sparkle
    BDDI

    If you wanted to drive the downstream effects with the utput of the Unibass. It really does like the levelling of a compressor on its input.

    I'll help you if you promise to post some home recorded clips of the Chunk Funk
     
  4. As soon as I get myself sorted with a home recording set-up I'll sort your Chunk fix... but I'm in the midst of getting a new set-up so it might take a little time. In the meanwhile, have you checked the samples at the Chunk site? They are pretty accurate assesments of how it sounds IMHO. Go here if you haven't already...
