    Very nice.

    Are you using all that with an amp and cab?
    What kind of music do you mostly play??
    How do YOU like the way it sounds???

    I like it ! Makes me feel that I don’t have too many drive pedals since I only have 3!

    Running everything through a Hartke KB12 500w amp
    I play metalcore/post-hardcore
    I've haven't stopped buying Darkglass because I'm a huge fan of their sound, especially with the B7K and B7KU. Darkglass gear gets me closest to my 'dream tone' so that's why I continue to use it

    Are you using your compressor after your drives/ DI?
    Why don't you put your B7K/Apha-Omega on the outside so you can use the direct out?

    This forum needs a “Love” button. Because that’s what I’d select as a reply for your board.

    The compressor is the last in the chain besides the noise gate. I don't use the direct outs because i go straight from the board into one amp and i prefer to have one signal chain and less cables

    I would definitely compress before distortion. How are you using the B7Ks differently?

    I admit I'm not completely familiar with the Darkglass product line... does their stuff have tubes? Or are they going the Tech 21 route and doing it without tubes?

    I ask because I want to learn. Thanks.

    Maybe buy a couple of their new amps. Love the 900 V2 series.

    Me too! It’s such an easy amp to dial in. Plus I love the feel of the footswitch. The only pedal I use now is my tuner.

    No tubes. The Vintage Ultra (which is not on the OP's board) is very tubey sounding, though.

    I find it entertaining that $1500 of Darkglass pedals is "cleaned up" by a $30 Behringer noise reducer. If it works, great.

    Gotta catch em all!
    My VMT is likely never leaving my life. Small, simple, lots of uses. I kinda want the ultra big brother but.. I dunno. Money, it's a thing.

    Have you stuck that board between a guitar and guitar amp? The DG stuff is amazing on more than just bass in my opinion.

    I had two Darkglass drives before my compressor, too. I much prefer drive into compression. But one was a DI and I wanted a DI final, and I wanted the DI to be Darkglass so I had to buy another Darkglass pedal to put an the end. :) At one point, I had 3 Darkglass drives. I only sold one to make space for a King of Tone that I had the opportunity to get. Much <3 4 DG
