    heres a new picture of my board.

    signal chain is:

    bass > mxr di > bad monkey > ashdown envelope filter > ehx octave multiplexer > ehx nano small stone > boss limiter enhancer > boss dd3 > boss rc2 > amp

    the board(s) are homemade. I based them off the pedal train boards basically.

    Killer setup! Looks nice and modular! Do you have them angled like that on stage?

    methinks you could fit all that on one board in two rows if one of those had another plank accross further back

    that would just make more sense to me

    i actually just built the board the other day, so i havent had a chance to gig with it yet, but i most likely use that angled set up.

    It looks to me that he did that to preserve stage space. I remember being in bands that had too many people to fit on the stage at once. We also had a lot of gear...

    Oh, if you had interesting for the tube envelope filter, you can try the TubeZipper. It's the demo video link:
    http://media.ehx.com/media/11_TubeZipper.mpg

    TubeZipper is a tube edition reissuie of original Zipper pedal, what a envelope filter as Mu-Tron iii but with overdrive and random model. Very interest. Both George Clinton and Larry Graham have got it.

    wow, i wasn't really impressed until the end where he demonstrated why it is called the tubeZIPPER, i like that weird sound lol

    but its still not really a tube envelope filter, its a normal envelope filter with a tube distortion added on

    its intriguing, it would probably be fun to mess with

    edit: i just remembered i saw someone who looked like george clinton the other day, he was sweet lol. He had a beard and long dreads, but no multiple colors hahaha

    it seams to me the way i said would take up less floor area, but i guess i can see that setup being more versatile... if he really wanted to save space he could pack things in on the pedalboard more tightly, there is a decent amount of empty space on his board in between pedals and on the edges... maybe i'd get it if i'd been in that situation before, I've never played a venue where I was lacking in space, but I've never had more than 5 people in a band

    Also remember that thick boards make it hard to reach a microphone, so his 2 skinny ones won't be a problem if he sings.

    I know it's whatever works best for you, but I would swap the position of the Octave Multiplexer with the Ashdown Filter. That way the octaver get s a nice clean signal and you can get some fat synthy squelch when you use them together.

    Not if it's a boom stand. ;)
    It would balance better if there weren't two rows though.

    I'll give you that skinny ones would make it easier for that purpose (though the booms were brought up =P), but also, I didn't think of that cause I can't sing! lmao

    I wish I could though, it would make my search for a competent singer easier...

    I need help with finding good cables. The signal chain is as follows:

    Modulus Q6/Korg Wavestation>Boss LS2>Zvex Fuzz Factory>Boss DD3>Zoom 506II>SIB Fatdrive>Moog Ring Modulator>Moog Phaser>Boomerang>Ernie Ball Volume

    I want to run my sax into this chain. Im thinking of getting a small mixer.

    Not bashing, just curious, why have all the effects if all you're running to the FOH is clean tone? Do you DI from your amp or have a passive DI post effects or mic a cab? Or do you not need PA support, and just use the MXR for tone shaping?
