    Good call before the compressor, that way the compressor doesn't act on the unnecessary frequencies.

    I actually run an HX Stomp as my centerpiece, so really I have like 3 hpf's going myself. One on input (global EQ), one before any tracking effects (move block/path as needed), and then a Microthumpinator right at the end of everything.

    Wired up a second, smaller board for immediate crunchy tones, leaving the other one for synth madness. The Wah is a Wilson Effects Freaker Mini.

    You should trade me your PDR for my Union LAB!

    Very cool minimalistic board… I bet it does sound great with the 400+.

    I like my Union LAB, but the PDR is the best I’ve owned. Really fit my playing style and the tone I was looking for. The Union is growing on me, super easy to dial in!

    How are you using the line selector in the MS-60B?

    ZNR is in the first slot, then the line selector, then BassDrive into Qtron. Click the Line Selector to turn on my dirty filter.

    The discussion about best place for HPF when introducing new low freqs via octave down and filter got me thinking! I've decided to compromise by putting it mid-board immediately before my little Zoom multifx but after all the additional low-f stuff. I'll have to 'fess to having an ulterior motive in that I've got a couple of pedals offboard that I was really keen to find some space for, so I took the opportunity to sling the Thumpinator below board as an "always-on" pedal and have now slotted in a Pigtronix Octavia in its place.

    Signal chain is Bacchus 5 string jazz with TI flats > Octabvre > Wonderlove [loop > Doom > MBD2] > SLO. It's fun. Need some wobble, a tuner, and a Metro 16 or 20 to fit it all, though.

  17. Really awesome looking board. How is the Boss SY1 working out? I plan on getting Zoom B1 after listening thru its synth effects. How do they compare?

    Thanks! The Synth sounds from them are quite different, the Zoom actually gets closer to the "80s" synth sound but you've got a ton of sonic choices from the SY-1. There's a few decent bass focused clips on YT that will give you an idea of what its core sounds are and the tracking on the SY-1 is superb.

    Many would say that a Source Audio C4 or Panda FI are better synth pedals; they may be right (not least because they have true synth wave generators whereas the SY-1 is a synth emulator) but you're looking at double the price once you have got all the extras to make them work fully (eg midi controller etc) and they both need you to roll up your sleeves and get into PC editing to get the most out of them, whereas the Boss is plug and play with the immediacy of dials.

    Personally I'm a massive fan of the Zoom B1-4 for everything else it does. I've not come across a pedal that is more versatile or better value for money. I like it so much I've got one at the center of my board, as you can see, and a spare that I slip into a gig bag as a headphone amp!
