    Hi TB,

    Since receiving the LS2 I have become a convert of using loops on my pedalboard. However, I can't decide on how to orden my new set up. This is what I own (also pictured):

    EBS Multicomp (compressor)
    Boss LS2 (line splitter/mixer)
    Aguilar Octamizer (octaver)
    Digitech Polara (delay)
    Boss CE-5 (chorus)
    Darkglass b3k (overdrive)
    Darkglass Alpha Omicron (distortion)

    In the future, I might be interested in a Fuzz or something like an envelope filter, though I image I might sell the Polara to do so. I don't imagine my pedalboard increasing in size in the near future (famous last words, I know).

    The order is now:

    Amp send - EBS Multicomp - Boss LS2 - Tuner - Amp return
    Loop A: Polara - CE5 - b3k - AO
    Loop B: Octamizer

    Only the Multicomp is always on. I want to be able to mix dry signals with delay, chorus, drive or distortion. Not with octaver though (I imagine this might also cause phasing issues).


    - Octaver AFTER LS2 so I can use it more flexible?
    - Chorus in a different loop so I can use it parallel with a driven signal? However this disappears in a live mix, would be my guess.
    - Drive in one loop, Distortion in the other so I can run them parallel for extra destruction???

    Thanks for thinking along!
