    I would go Volume-->Overdrive-->Flange.
     
  3. depends on what you're using the volume pedal for. if you're hitting it on to "overdrive" your overdrive pedal, put it like this: Volume to OD to Flange

    but if you want to use the volume pedal to just make whatever your playing, effected or not, louder, do it like this: OD to Flange to Volume
     
  4. Personally I would go OD -> Flanger -> Volume. But thats just how I like the sound of things. On my board i've got distorion/OD running before and after modulation effects and the volume in the middle.
    I spent ages moving my pedals around in order to see what sounded good where, and I'm still doing it, It's nice to experiment now and then!! :p

    what do yo mean by geeked
     
  7. I`d suggest: od->flanger->volume. Then I would buy a delay pedal and place it last in the chain. when all your effects are on you can make artistic synth swells with volume pedal and delay. very nice. ooh. suits me, maybe you too.
