Chain of effects???

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by caesarbass, Feb 11, 2005.

  1. :help: Is there a rule of thumb that should be followed when daisy chaining effects together?
    I'm using:
    1) Sans Amp Bass Driver for distortion
    2) EBS Octabass
    3) Boss TU-2, tuner/mute
    4) Digitech bass synth wah
    Most of the time I usually only use the EBS and the TU-2, but I'm doing more tunes that require a synth type of sound. I really do prefer to just plug in and play.

    Possible combinations are:

    TU-2>Octabass>Bass Synth Wah>Bass Driver

    Octabass>Bass Synth Wah>Bass Driver>TU-2

    Octabass>Bass Driver>Bass Synth Wah>TU-2

    TU-2>Octabass>Bass Driver>Bass Synth Wah

    Just try these combinations and see which ones work best or sound best to you.

    If you only ever have one of them on at a time, the order really doesn't matter. If you use two or more in combo, that's when the order becomes more important as something like fuzz before env filter will sound different than env filter before fuzz.
  4. Cool! Thanks for the advice. The EBS Octabass really likes a strong signal so I think it will end up first...I'll try some different combinations. :bassist:
