    I think they said there was a mode coming later (?) that allows scene mode on four switches and stompbox in four? Then I could give the stomp box midi control to the guitarist and the just switch scenes for every song. I don’t need to change sound on the bass that often.

    How about 4 MIDI pedals feeding a 4x1 MIDI merger feeding the MIDI input of the QC? Assumptions being: the MIDI pedals can be programmed to send MIDI CC#, variable per switch....and...if the QC allows for assignment of discrete MIDI CC receive to the individual effect block slots being used in a preset.

    This type of setup would give you simple stomp functionality for each player. The log jam would be with hitting the overall cpu processing limit. If captures are a lower cpu % hit, then that would be the way to go for core tones. I can realistically see 3 or 4 players with modest needs sharing a single QC this way.

    I know they're bulky and awkward to program, but the Behringer FCB1010 is relatively inexpensive and has enough programmability to do this task.

    Man, I've been toying with the Neural DSP plugins and I'm sold on the modeling method. The Darkglass Ultra and Fortin Cali plugins are hands down my favorite.

    Archetype: Cory Wong is my jam! It does great with bass and guitar.

    Ive already got the Darkglass Ultra, Parallax, and Fortin Nameless plug-ins.

    Archetype: Gojira may be purchased sometime soonish - it is killer sounding out of the box! I’ve been trying the Abasi and Plini Archetypes, but I haven’t fallen for them like I have the others.

    I use both the Parallax and Darkglass Ultra in recording, I got the Nolly pack on sale for the sole purpose of having it on my QC to impress my guitarist. ;)

    Well, I'm on the pre-order list. This wait could be torture.

    Same. Looks like they are on target to start shipping in late March. I got on pre-order on January 19th so I may not be in the first batch that Sweetwater gets.

    I hear you. I got the trial for the Gojira one. I like their guitar tones enough in the recordings. I think they sound great. ...but I just didn't connect with it when I was playing through it like I did with the Cali. The Parallax I might get. Not sure yet.

    Doug sent out an email yesterday with a 25% discount code for Mission Engineering if anyone is looking for an expression pedal to go with the QC.

    Wong is awesome and I love Nolly as well. As I play guitar also I haven't done much with bass and C Wong. Any suggestions?

    I hear ya. I pre-ordered from Sweetwater on 12/11 (when they told me it would ship in early January lol).
    I can't imagine the guys that pre-ordered over a year ago.

    The first amp (the channel strip thing) is awesome when you turn off the cab sim portion. The bass presets under Factory > Cory Wong are a good starting place :thumbsup:

    If your preorder number is over 1500, you probably won't be. I know I'm under 1800, so I'm expecting to be in the 2nd batch

    No, this is through SW. A friend of mine works there, so I knew how many were in line in front of me

    Ah ok. The guy i talk to there says he had no idea how many SW is due to get so he couldn't tell me where I land. I put in my order on Jan 19, 2021. Haven't been on the waiting list long.

    I'm fully expecting to not be in the first drop given how late I got into this.

    I just shot my guy an email and asked if he knew what place in line I am. We'll see if he knows.
