Pretty chuffed with this:
Signal Chain is as follows:
Boss LS-2 > Octamizer > Cali76 > Future Impact > HX Stomp
MIDI chain is:
Morningstar MC8 > HX Stomp > Future Impact
Future Impact is controlled directly from the MC8, bypass and patch changes have all been mapped to that, so I never actually touch it.
Internally we have the Subdecay Prometheus on Auto-Wah duties, in one of the Stomp’s FX Loops. Not sure what I’m going to put in the other loop yet, but there’s space for it next to the Prometheus. Maybe my Boss BF2B, as to my ears, there’s not a flanger in the Stomp that beats it!
Powering the board off an IEC splitter are two Gigrig Generators. One for the Stomp, one for the rest of the board. The Cali76 has an Xotic voltage doubler on it to run at 18v.
The Mission Expressionator allows me to control both the Stomp and the MC8 from one Dunlop mini. The cool thing being that the MC8 accepts multiple expression pedals so in theory, I can use the third Expressionator output to another of the MC8’s expression inputs and control the various functions of the Future Impact with it over MIDI. I haven’t tried this yet, but it’s food for thought!
Temple Audio USB adaptor allows me to charge my iPad from the board. I’ve also velcro’d a pick holder to the side of the LS2 for convenience, it’s also the only place it would fit! 😂
The Schmidt Array Connector box is wired to have two of its inputs going to the A and B returns of the LS2 so I can switch between basses, and then I also have stereo outs, or one output to the desk, and one to an amp for example. I used to run my stereo IEM feed into the board too, but now that i’m going to buy a wireless, I have two free connections for whatever takes my fancy!
