I am currently in the process of building my dream, all in one purpose board. Will be the definition of overkill on anything I do. Current process: Chain is currently set to go: Seymour Duncan Studio Bass -> Future Impact -> MXR Bass Octave Deluxe -> DOD Carcosa -> Earthquaker The Depths -> Earthquaker Westwood -> Earthquaker Dunes -> Catalinbread SFT -> ISP Deci-Mate Noise Gate -> Mission VM-Pro Volume Pedal -> Source Audio Orbital -> Source Audio Nemesis -> Keeley Caverns -> TC Electronic Hall of Fame 2 -> Broughton Low + High Pass Filter -> DI Tuner will be on the split out of the VM Pro, and the Future Impact will be controlled with a Disaster Area MIDI controller, haven't decided on the micro or getting the 3XL and adding the Source Audio pedals to the mix. It'll be my first foray into MIDI. Compressor, SFT, noise gate, and LHPF would be always on. Pedalboard is going to be tiered, with the back row of pedals on risers. A Walrus Audio Aetos is going to be under each riser, with the other space being the SFT and Deci-Mate on the right, and my DI on the left. Wanting to do the two power supplies to keep the volume pedal in the middle, and this would let me power 16 of the 17, running an 18v adapter off from one to power the SFT. I spent a lot of time researching the effects I wanted to make sure they would fit into the size of a hard case I have, but I am running into a few questions I could use help with. 1. Would there be a problem powering one of the Aetos power supplies from the 120V out of the other one? This would let me keep everything on one power cord coming from the board, but I wasn't sure if that would open up noise issues or underpower anything. 2. Does the tuner split on the VM-Pro volume pedal require their cable, or would any TRS Y-splitter work? I have the cable that came with the pedal, but it's a bit bulky and I'm using EBS flat patch cables for everything else. Wondering if that would work to save some space or not. 3. Current DI is a Radial Stagebug, the active version. I have heard tones of good things about other passive DIs, and I'm wondering if it would make sense to switch. I always play passive basses, and I heard the good rule of thumb was passive bass = active DI, but with this much crap on the board, I wasn't sure if that would still apply. I'd appreciate any feedback on this. I'm not new to effects, but it's always been small one or two pedal chains with constant switching up, this is the first time I've tried to plan out one board to do EVERYTHING I want.
