    guys .. currently here's my setting in drawing..

    [​IMG]

    im just wondering, for signal out, should i just use the direct out from my svt4, or should i get a direct box to be placed with my pedals together? i was thinking to get sansamp bddi (i had it once), but i already some odb-3 thus i don't know if i need bddi.

    what do you guys think? should i keep my current setup? should i replace odb-3 with bddi, or should i add bddi to my setup? :D

    well i think that the bddi would be more versatile than the obd-3 but im not sure it can get to the same high gain nastiness that the odb-3 can. of course there is no harm in having both pedals in the same chain. a lot of people here have many multiples of overdrives and distortions.
     
  3. you can NEVER have too many overdrives...I own a very select batch of 6, and 4-5 are on my board at any given time...they all have different, unique flavors that i love them for...sometimes you want that mild, warm, compressed tone, and sometimes u wanna play RHCP "Around the World" (good example of a boss odb-3 sounding great)

    Well, if you want to use a high quality DI, but one and put it in your chain. However, if you replace the ODB-3 with the Sansamp in that order, the FOH mix won't have reverb or chorus.

    Just something to ponder.

    so its better to have DI .. at the last of the chain right? right before the output to the amp

    If you want all your effects going to the PA. If not, whatever comes after the DI in the chain will not be heard in the FOH mix.
