I was working on my first ‘real’ pedalboard tonight, a ‘songwriting sketchbook’ of sorts. I was connecting different bits and assigning knobs, etc.
I don’t do anything fancy - I’m not a ‘sonic spelunker’ - I just enjoy writing traditional rock/pop songs and making music with my guitar, vocals, and preset synth patches. That is to say: No individual component of what I’m doing is special or innovative.
That said, I zoomed out to the full view of the board, and was honestly astonished at what I saw. You can see a screenshot below.
I have multi-part sequencing into a great sounding drum sampler, a separate reverb bus so everything runs into a single reverb plugin (with individual wet level control), simultaneous gain increase/volume reduction on the amp so one knob can sanely adjust amp distortion…
This is the same level of stuff I was doing in my DAW before I got this. And I can use it live.
I don’t believe this level of customization is available in any other device of it’s size/price. Certainly not the options I was considering.
I am completely stoked about it, and thought I’d share.
