Okeydokey - pared down version of what I sent to AGB earlier - figure you guys would dig on this thread too. I'm a returning-to-bass guy after a hiatus. *wave* Basses: Schecter Stilletto Custom-4, Wishnevsky custom design fretted 4, perhaps an EUB on the horizon Amp: GenzBenz Intro 90, should be arriving soon (been awhile since i had a bass amp!) Sound: from clean'n'thick to outer space So, for the ?s: I want chorus, phase, delay, and whatever else trippy. Akai Deep Impact on the shopping list already, and I own a Route66 comp/OD. For the rest... i'm thinking: -Visual Sound H2O chorus+delay, PLUS a -Line 6 MM4 Now, that way I could use another of the MM4's fx *with* chorus instead of having to pick one or the other. Pros? Cons? Also, assuming i had everything, I'd set it up like: Bass > Deep Impact > Rte66 > MM4 > H2O > Amp (note, i dont like using fx loops just for the cabling nightmare IMHO - i like to just plug in and go; but i would put the h2o in the loop if i felt it needed to be) Cheers!
