  1. Back in 2006 when I first joined I had just gotten back into playing and had purchased a Boss GT-8, thinking it would serve as my one-stop for effects. Then the GAS set in. Now my board is set up like this: Guitar->Tripler->Sonuus MIDI interface->Novation X-Station Tripler->Pigtronix Philosopher King->Crybaby Wah->Roger Mayer Voodoo XX->Roger Mayer Octavia->Caitlinbread Fuzzrite->Ibanez FZ7->Ibanez Jemini->CoPilot Antenna 2->CoPilot Android->Stereo Memory Man w/Hazarai->Guyatone Flip TD-X->Eventide Pitchfactor->Strymon Moebius->Stymon Timefactor->Strymon Bib Sky->Ernie Ball Volume pedal->Amp This is all mounted on a Pedaltrain Pro board but I am going to have to trim it down a little because I want to get a road case rather than the soft gig bag that came with the PTP and the Flip delay and part of my wah are literally hanging off the side of the board,so the Flip and the Fuzzrite might be removed. Oh, yeah, the Tripler and the Sonuus are actually off the board, as is the Ball pedal.
  2. Better control using pedals. I have a GT-8 and it makes a nice compact solution to auditions, jams and open mics, but when it comes down to wanting to have total control over my sound, nothing beats my pedal board.
  3. Four oscillators is nice, but considering the LFOs only vary pulse width and not pitch, you might do better with one of these: http://www.sonuus.com/products_g2m.html and one of these (which also has four oscillators):
  4. Thanks, Phil! I also found that the Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai gets a pretty good backward tape sound. Even though I have the SMMwH, I might look into a used Obscura for the other weirdness it is capable of producing.

  6. To those who have used the Digitiech Obscura, is it possible to replicate a Backward sound like those on a Beatles or Hendrix album by setting the Repeats down to a minimum and setting Time to some reasonable value, enough to capture a significant phrase? I can do this with my Boomerang but the rang is noisy as hell and would prefer not to pollute my signal chain with that much static. Thanks!
  7. If I recall the V-50 has lots of patch locations so you should be able to get by without replacing the floppy, which was very expensive when I wanted to replace mine. Besides, if I recall, it uses DD disks, which are not easy to come by anymore. 4 OP FM makes for some very gnarly sounds.
  8. I realize that this is a very old post but do you still have this box? If so, I'll buy it.
  9. Yeah, if you are only using one keyboard, the old "headphones direct into the instrument's headphone jack" routine should play well. Are there no stage monitors?
  10. Added a couple of items: E-Mu Ultra Proteus $200 + shipping I have to thin the herd a bit and have two of these beauties from when I had an identical practice rig and home rig. I only really need one, so this one is up for sale. It is in good condition, has minor rack rash, but otherwise all the parts are present and in excellent working condition. No manual, but I can provide a PDF version if the buyer cannot find one online. It's been in smoke-free environments since I owned it. Comes with power cord. For anyone who wants a Morpheus, the Ultra Proteus is essentially a Morpheus with a different, larger sample set (Proteus 1, 2 & 3 samples) and more filter models. Korg Wavestation $200 + shipping As with the Ultra Proteus, I have two of these beasts from when I had an identical practice rig and home rig. I only really need one, so this one is up for sale. It is in good condition, has minor rack rash, but otherwise all the parts are present and in excellent working condition. No manual, but I can provide a PDF version if the buyer cannot find one online. It's been in smoke-free environments since I owned it. Roland S-10 Sampler $100 + shipping Anyone interested in a vintage sampler with 4 seconds of memory that is built like a tank need not look any further. I have the manual, power cord and a box of discs. Korg Poly 800 with "Moog slayer" mod $250 + shipping This baby has been used and shows it. It no longer uses batteries, having been modded to now accept a + pin rather than - pin 9V adapter (included). However, it is the mod that makes it worth consideration. Three knobs have been added - Frequency, Resonance, and Noise, and when they are brought to bear you might actually think you were hearing an old Moog (not a Mini, but something with only two oscillators). There is a warning I've found when doing research on that mod that says to always be careful with your speakers when tweaking the mod knobs, as the sound gets extremely fat, and it is very true. M-Audio Venom $200 + shipping Barely used M-Audio Venom, purchased because Mark Mothersbaugh said that we would be hearing these all over the place. It's a cool synth with some strange but useful abilities, like importing MIDI files previously created on a sequencer or DAW to use as phrases. A personal quirk is that I prefer to work directly on a unit, rather than use editor software (even if it means using a tiny window to do it), so not being able to edit directly on the unit is a drawback for me. I will entertain trades, but would prefer to sell. All prices are USD. email me at montagmusic AT gmail DOT com if interested.
  11. Why do people break things down into the parts they like and don't like? I like that picture Mona Lisa, but that smile has to go!
  12. It helps if/when you move to have the original fitted box with the inserts. I had a Yamaha V-50 that moved from Illinois to Texas to Florida (and two more times in Florida) that never sustained a bit of damage because I could pack it properly. Same with my Wavestation A/D that started in TX.
  13. Instead of printing Roland D-50 on it you should put something on it that reflects you.
  14. You said that you are using a small mixer. Does the mixer have some sort of stereo tape monitor-out or anything like that? If not you could run A/B/Y splitters (or even get those 1-in 2-out splitter cords from Radio Shack) off the output of your mixer and straight into your recorder. Then you have the signal without mic'ing. However, it also depends on how much tone you would lose from your amps. Does your recorder allow for multiple inputs? You could run directs PLUS mics to get a nice mix of the effects without the speakers and the total package, then play with your mix until you have a balance that gives the most tone with the least foot pedal clicking.
