    Man, I'm tempted to take you up on this.

    Problem is ... I run all my MP-1 presets with almost identical EQ already.

    Everything from a light blues crunch to all out metal is nearly the same, and even the solid-state cleans have the same EQ as the dirty sounds, except for the presence. I get all the tonal variety I need out of OD1 and OD2: just gains and levels, that's it.

    Everything also goes globally through a 31 band rackmount EQ. That one is set just the way I like. Whenever I tweak it, it always ends up being temporary, and before long I put it back the way it was.

    Basically, though I have a soft spot in my heart for that MQ-1 thing, and other things ADA, I would end up not doing anything with it; every MIDI preset would have the same EQ, which defeats the purpose of the flexibility.

    It would also be make-work: I'd start swapping op-amps in that thing, converting it to batteryless ...
