I have a space on my pedal-board, suggestions?

    Firstly, I recently upgraded the power supply on my board, and my god what a difference it makes to noise, or rather, lack of it now.

    Anyhow, I now have a space on my board, which obviously needs filling, any suggestions?

    What you see in the pic is Tuner -> Compressor -> Drop -> Octave -> Overdrive -> Chorus -> Looper -> DI.

    I was thinking some visualisation screen perhaps.

    Night Owl Industries Edison tube preamp. Takes whatever you’re doing and adds “more.”

    Hondo's Yt demo of this is great!

    Moar is always good. That looks like a miniature coin slot video game (well, the one on the right). If it sounds as cool as it looks, WIN!

    A different suggestion would a newer Tech 21 Sansamp pedal of your choice with DI capabilities. Dual function.

  6. Convert it to a full stereo setup.
    You need one more amp, but I doubt that is a problem for someone who posts questions like this on this forum.

  8. What about a small ocilloscope so you can se the waveforms you are playing.
    Keith Emerson had one connected to his polymoog, at least it was in the same rack.
    Looked pretty cool.

    That's what I'm thinking, something like that anyway, does anyone know of where to start looking? Apart from "oscilloscope", what else should I be googling?
  10. A "frequency analyser" might be a way better display.
    You can also serch for the word "spectrum analyser".
    I actyally think the latter one is the right word for it.

    Pedal, or all you’ll get are big boxes.
    Bad fit.

    If you can’t find one, alternatives might be Peterson strobo tuner or TC Polytune. They can look really cool.

    At least there have existed small cheap kit ocilloscopes, they might be able to show the spectrum too.
    The smallest ones should fit in a pedal sized box, IF my memory is somewhat intact.

    DSO Nano v3
    This should be a good fit and I think there's custom firmwares to enhance it.
    That is, IF my memory still works.
    The FW upgrades might have been for some other device.
    Pretty cool anyway.

  17. A nice analog delay wouldn't be a bad addition here.

    Looking into these analyzers, looks like there's quite a few to choose from.

    Question now is, can I simply "split" my signal at some point to go into one of these analysers, or can that affect anything? obviously don't really fancy another DI box on the board.

    Are you happy with and do you get much use out of the ODB-3 as it is?

    An LS-2 would keep your low end intact with it at its gnarliest settings, while giving you the simultaneously option to run a little chorus on that dry intact signal.

    Not a very exciting pedal on its own, but it really does add a few options to any existing pedals.

    But if you use more dirt get a different distortion. If modulation is more your cup o tea, consider a flanger or phaser. THEN get a bigger board and add that LS-2 for versatility with your existing stuff :bassist:
