analog and digital pedals

Actually, I find the high-freq noise of digi-after-digi to be very annoying.

It all their clocks bleeding thru poorly designed grounds...drek really,

but that's what we get in our digital age.

 

You can hear a 44kHz clock? Through an amp that doesn't put out significant energy over 6kHz?

 

Bats must really, really annoy you. :D

 

But in answer to the original question there is no reason whatsoever why you can't/shouldn't run any combination of analogue and digital you want to.

I always tell people to experiment with their sound. There really is no right or wrong way to go about it. Whatever makes you excited and gets you playing more is what I say to go for. I play mostly analog pedals but I do have a Boss DD-5 that I run into the fx loop of my Psionic Audio Triad. It sounds killer.

48K - 44.1K = 3.9 K, for example.

 

The only real problem I've seen relates to trying to use daisy chain power, and breaking order rules too. Or ground issues with rack FX (digi noise if you float the ground possibly too).

 

Used to rather enjoy my 12 bit MidiFEX decay thru my cranked amp.

of 60+ pedals in my room, I think there are 5 or 6 digitals.

(notes BBD's dont count in this, uh, count)


I've been playing with some vintage distorto-phase tonight and

it is glorious. I love the way fuzxz bites the edge of a phaser.

 

 

40+ pedals about half digital

 

and digital pedals just make cooler noises

 

and hate to have 40+ distortion, phasers, and tremolos when there are tons of awesome digital delays, pitch shifters, modelers, and awesome things to play with
