    Best Budget OD/Distortion?

    And I'll do you a good deal on an OJ that has only seen 5 minutes use, still has the protective film on top! 😉

    Fender '61 Flea Bass Woes

    Don't buy them from there then! £52 from Bass Direct for 4 licensed ones: http://bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Hipshot,_Licensed_tuners.html

    What kind of sound are you after and what don't you like about the BSF? That would help, as there are just as many that love the Mojomojo as there are that didn't like it. It's quite dark and squishy, great for Motown / Blues etc, but not really bright or aggressive if you want a more modern sounding pedal - for which it would be hard to go wrong with one of these:

    Modern Blueberry?

    The Aguilar Agro is worthy of investigation. Set to low gain and presence I can get Blueberryish tones out of it, but it can get much angrier from there!

    Mr Black Fwonk Beta SOLD

    I never used mine in my band either, but it was worth keeping purely for freaking out and making great bass faces with in the privacy of my own home! It's a keeper!

    Zoom B3n, should I get one???

    The Line 6 product manager has been posting in the Helix HX thread on Talkbass: https://www.talkbass.com/threads/line-6-hx-effects.1324948/page-86#post-21687227

    Zoom B3n, should I get one???

    I recommend it, and I've been a individual-pedals-on-a-board guy since forever. The Z-Tron envelope filter, B7K and Sansamp models are my favourites, I could easily gig with just this. Although I expect to move to a Line6 Helix HX once they add the Sansamp model they've been hinting at! Much easier to use and better sounding (in terms of amp sims and dirt at least) than the B3 / B1on.

    The Yamaha BB thread (from X34/5 launch)

    Contact Yamaha directly too. They quoted me a price on a set but it was a long time ago.

    New Darkglass Pedal

    That’s just pretty much just a USB audio interface shaped like a pedal though, not quite what I had in mind. The closest thing in existence to what I’m talking about is this: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/modduo/mod-duo-the-limitless-multi-effects-pedal Various manufacturers could produce a range of devices from the size of the Zoom MS-60B up to the Line6 Helix that could all run the same common plugin format, with no need for a connected PC.

    I'd be happy to go purely digital though once a few things had been straightened out. All we'd need IMHO is a commercially successful attempt at providing a universal standard for pedals to be able to download new single FX like you can for VST plugins on your DAW. Then you could buy plugin host pedals either as single pedal sized units or huge multis, that can all interchange the same FX, that can be bought from app stores, or from open source. You'd be able to buy either Zoom's, Line6's or Darkglass's own B7K model for example, and either load it into your cheapo Mooer pedal with a couple of knobs on, or your behemoth Helix style unit, or your DAW in the studio. One day!

    The signal path is analog. In most analog compressors, the bit controlling the volume level (like the engineer's hand on the fader) is also analog (e.g. a light bulb for an optical comp). However in this case, the sidechain is totally digital. So you can have the flexibility of a digital comp where you can have control over tons of parameters like attack, release, knee, etc, but your output signal has been kept pretty pure by only passing though a simple amplifier stage rather than being converted to 1s and 0s and back again.

    IR's - what are they?

    It stands for Impulse Response. Commonly used for cab sims and reverb modellers (to simulate the sound of a specific room), but most pedals you will see would be talking about cab sims. If you feed a white noise signal that contains an equal spread of all frequencies into a cab, then measure what comes out the other end, you end up with a specific EQ curve for that cab. That can then be used to apply a cab sim via digital processing, and you can download a ton of IRs from the web, e.g. one for an Ampeg 8x10. It's a bit more complicated than a simple EQ curve though as it takes time into the equation as well, but that's the general gist of it!

    Eden I90 Bass chorus pedal - on sale for £29

    You could always run a splitter/daisy chain off the one 15V supply. However I don't recommend the Californiwah and it has nothing to do with the power requirements. I just could not get it to sound good at all!

    Shame it's not multiband, I can't go back to single band compressors now I have been spoilt by the Spectracomp! Looks awesome though, touch controls show the future of what we might see in the range - I did say I'd like to see a system like the TC RH750's knobs and these look even better with no moving parts. The blurb suggests they were not aware of the Sonuus Voluum though, which is the first compressor with a digital sidechain and analog signal path that I'm aware of! The Hyper Luminal Compressor features the first hybrid design in a compressor pedal: an analog VCA controlled by a digital side-chain allowed us to capture and include the characters of some of the most legendary compressors in history while keeping the signal path completely analog.

    Phasers. What’s Good?

    Small Clone is a chorus, I presume you meant the Small Stone! Both the Small Stone and MXR Phase 90 are great on bass.
