    Hi guys, I have read a lot of topics about pedalboard signal path and I really need some help with my setup. I'm doing this right? Please help!

    Looks fine to me. Should work.

    Excellent diagram. Has made me think of the idea of a database of effects chains, with diagrams like yours.

    That’s a great idea, this really helps me visualize the right connections!

    So the SCR is last because of the XLR?

    Yes, I need this pedalboard to do 3 different tasks:
    - Play live straight to PAs
    - Connect to any flat amps for rehearsal
    - Plug on my OB1-500 (when I can take with me)

    I would drop the silencer and just run the tuner first. Or whereever you want.

  8. Are the Canyon and Freeze noisy? You may be able to take them out of the Silencer effects loop and put them in after the silencer in the chain. Not completely necessary tho, your chain looks good. I only say it, because my noise gate exists only to silence the hiss of the dirt pedals.

    I still do not have the Freeze and Canyon :/
     
  10. When you do get them, try 'em in and out of the silencers loop. I've tried putting my noise gate at the end of my chain and found that if it's dialed up too much it would start affecting my modulation effects.

    Soon as I have them all and test I'll come back here to share some conclusions :)

    Any issues mounting this guy on your pedalboard? I see there are some rubber feet there. Do you have to remove them? Asking before I pull the trigger...
     
  13. I unscrewed the rubber feet ( they also hold the back plate on) and replaced them with some machine screws from the hardware store. The feet are definitely too tall to work with Velcro

    That's what I did, too. Very easy conversion.
