synth stompbox placing

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by jacopas, Sep 24, 2005.

  1. Where is the best place to put synth pedal in pedal board? I have 4 stompboxes. DOD FX-53 (distortion), tech21 bass compactor (compressor), ibanez sb-7(synth), sansamp bass driver. I play at a club and use the PA system.I use them in this line up: SB-7->Bass Compactor->DOD FX-53-> Sansamp Bass Driver -> PA.
    how they should be placed in order to take maximum benefit?

    I have found my Digitech BSW must be right up front in 1st or 2nd position and that I have to run a lot of instrument gain into it to get the full effect.

    i also put my digitech bass synth wah at the front of the chain, it has trouble tracking if i put a bunch of other effects in front of it, except maybe compression -dave

    Put it towards the beginning. It works like a wah so it needs to be more towards the front.
