    I've searched and searched and believe this to be the best order for my effects. Does it seem right?

    EH Baseballs
    MXR M-102 Dyna Comp
    EH Little Big Muff Pi
    EH Small Stone
    MXR M-80 Bass DI+


    Thanks,

    yOU MAY WANT TO TRY THE COMPRESSOR BEFORE THE DISTORTION. Distortion is already compressed, howver try it both ways. Other wise it looks good.

    What he said, without caps. Also, you might want to try the bassballs after the distortion to get some synthy sounds. Triggering shouldn't be a big problem if you don't use a lot of compression.

    We can't tell you what's "right" - what sounds good to us might sound bad to you, and vice-versa.

    But if you'd like my two cents... I'd probably move the Bassballs and place it after the Big Muff Pi. IMO, I'd also get rid of the Dyna Comp and get a different compressor, unless you actually bought it for heavy compression.

    I'm more of a light compression guy (with some exceptions), and the Dyna Comp was never my favorite compressor.
