    K, I think I pretty got all the pedals I want for my board. I have the..

    Aphex Punch Factory
    Double Muff (distortion)
    Sansamp programmable Bass DI
    Aphex Bass Xciter
    Digitech Bass Chorus

    So I am in the midst of setting up my chain..I do have a few final questions:
    1-Can I use the Bass Xciter w/ the Sansamp running at the same time?
    2-Can I even put them together in the same chain and operate only one of them at a time?
    3-Where should the bass Xciter go in the chain (b4 and after what effects?)
    4-Should the Q-tron+ be(first?) before the compressor or after?
    5-Where should the sansamp be?(I will not use it as a DI) but more for overdrive or shaping my tone. there it is folks. Don't hesitate to put your input in.

    Aphex Punch Factory>Sansamp>Qtron+>DB MUFF>APhex Xciter>Digitech Chorus

    this is to the best of my knowledge..any thoughts on this chain setup? How would you change it and why? if any changes are to be made at all. pls feel free to "setup" my effects. thanks

    I'd put the SansAmp after the Qtron and the muff.
    First because you may have problems controlling the tron with a distorted sound.
    Second because the SansAmp can warm up the muff and compensate for missing lows. the opposite will only result in random gargling.
