Pedal train order!

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by chief redcok, Jul 22, 2012.

  1. If you owned all these---

    -Moog MF101
    -3 Leaf Proton
    -SansAmp BDDI
    -TC PolyTune
    -FEA Opti-FET Comp

    What order would YOU put them in? Don't give me that "no correct order".

    tuner first, envelope filter [proton] before the compressor, compressor, sansamp.
    depending on how you use the mf101 and amout of colouring you get from sansamp, you should play w/ it's position.

    This. Although I run my compressor at the end of the chain...but definitely tuner first then Proton.
  6. Absolutely true.

    I like this chain. However, if he's using the Sansamp's DI, it should always go last. The MF101, as I understand it is basically an envelope filter without the expression pedal. If he's got the expression pedal, I'd put it after the envelope filter. That's just me, though, and you should always play with all of the pedals' positions!

    no correct order. and I'd put the comp right after the tuner, and BEFORE the filters. That's right, there is no correct order.

    I always put my compressor after the filter.

    No correct order.

    *readies claymore*

    you watch your dirty little mouth.

    less trolltastic, more informative - seriously dooder. there's no correct order. all the gents that have said how they would do it are very smart and knowledgeable, but i would go a very different route.

    But this is an option.

    BASS > TC Polytune > Moog MF101 > 3 Leaf Proton > comp > SansAmp BDDI > AMP

    Why have two different low pass filters? What are you using the BDDI for? Dirt? DI? Both? What are you compressing, and why?

    Without knowing your sonic goals, we can only speculate what order they're going to be most effective.
