Another effect order question ...

    Hi to all !
    This is my first post !
    So, let me start with the question :

    I'm using now the following pedal effect :

    Bass Synth BOSS SYB-3
    Limiter Enhancer BOS LMB-3
    Bass Chorus Ibanez BC5
    Noise Suppressor BOSS N-2
    Distorsore BOSS HM-2
    Compressor BOSS

    Which is the correct order ?

    Consider that the Noise Suppresor had
    a Send and a return.

    Now i'm using this set :

    Noise Sup. (Out)--------->Dist. -> Synth -> Ampl.
    (Send) (Ret.)
    | |
    | |
    Limit. |
    Compr. |
    | |

    I know it's a bad way.
    What's the better ?

    Compressor BOSS
    Bass Synth BOSS SYB-3
    Distorsore BOSS HM-2
    Bass Chorus Ibanez BC5
    Noise Suppressor BOSS N-2
    Limiter Enhancer BOS LMB-3

    But do you really need the last two pedals?

    Thanks for the suggestion !

    About the last 2 pedals :

    My idea is to have the Noise Suppressor
    to reduct the noise made by all the other pedals.

    The Limiter Enhancer was one of my first pedals
    and my experience is that the limiter is very
    good in recording studio, the Enhancer gives me
    a real pumping sound.

    Any suggestion ?

    Which of this effect are better to put
    into the Send - Return of the Noise Pedal ?

  4. My thoughts:

    Boss LMB-3
    Boss Compressor
    Boss Bass Synth
    Boss HM-2
    Ibanez BC-5
    Boss NS-2

    Limiter first to even out the attack on your bass and not overdrive any of the pedals (especially the synth)...enhance the LMB-3 to taste...compress to your hearts content, and put the noise gate at the end, for the reasons you laid out. People debate putting the chorus before the distortion, but that's up to you.
