Help me update my FX Chain

    I've bought the MXR M-80 DI/Preamp/Distortion, but I'm not quite sure where to put it, in my signal-chain.

    My current setup is:

    Jim Dunlop Bass Wah 105Q

    Loop-Master Dual Loop
    - LOOP 1
    - Boss GEB-7 EQ (Boosting the auto wah)
    - Danelectro French Fries Auto Wah

    - LOOP 2
    - Boss CEB-3 Chorus

    Boss OC-2 Octaver

    My concern is if the MXR M-80 DI/Preamp/Distortion should be be the Wah or after the Octaver.

    My guess is, that it would best before the Wah.

    I'm looking forward to your reply.
  2. In my opinion, the Octaver should be first in the chain...the cleanest signal possible to insure accurate tracking. I generally like overdrive/distortion prior to the wah, so try putting the MXR before the Crybaby. That's all I'd suggest.
