  1. Anyone got any patches that are like the bass synth tone in this:
    I made one the other day that is pretty close but, it just doesnt quite sit right in the mix. Hard to get the slow upwards swoop while retaining thick low end throughout

    You’d need to use a different foot switch that introduced a secondary master volume control when AGS was on. Probably possible, but like the Vintage Ultra, you’d really want separate EQ settings between clean and dirty, making the whole two channel option less appealing.

    Both very different pedals... the Darkglass adds a layer of distorted mids onto your clean tone, keeping the low end clean and uncompressed. The EQ is brilliant, 3 selectable bands for both high and low mids. The Tone Hammer on the other hand is more of a full range drive, so your low end can get a bit blurry. Also the mid control is pre-drive, so you can keep it flat or boosted for a Motown vibe or scoop it right back for a Sansamp style drive, two sounds that the Darkglass can struggle to replicate.

    Thanks for the insight! I'm using the Vintage Deluxe not the Ultra though, by the way!

    I’ve no experience of the Darkglass but the Tonehammer is great if wanting a warm, vintagey, valley sound. Due to the immense hike in volume if you apply the AGS it’s not really any good to use as a 2 channel pedal but you could set a great eq sound from the TH then add in the DG for drive, or do the opposite depending on which pedals tone you prefer as your always on eq/sound.

    Yeah I've heard about the volume hike which is a real shame because if not, it'd solve both my EQ/drive needs :(

  4. So I've had my Vintage Deluxe for ages and always used it as a drive pedal, but I'm finding myself needing a preamp lately so I've started using it as a preamp/EQ section early on in my chain.
    I see a lot of people using the Tone Hammer for a similar role and I wondered how the two compare.
    Anyone have any opinions on the two pedals and the their abilities as drive/preamp pedals?

    Change monitor resolution or move the taskbar to the side.

    i have a two-monitor setup now which gets around this. 

    Thanks! Fixed this issue by doing exactly what you said for another issue, had forgot about the FI Editor issue ha!

    But now the FI Editor and the pedal itself aren't communicating.. There were no issues last week when I last tried hmm
    I'm changing my MIDI Preferences to use the Roland UM-ONE MIDI interface but when I apply my settings they don't save for some reason. Not sure why, the cable is being recognised by my PC, the drivers installed when I used it the first time and it's on COMP mode.. Any ideas?

    they started fitting the o'ring mod at the factory. just take a pot off (carefully) if there's o'rings underneath then its fitted.

    the rings are assembled with some dry lube to keep things moving, potentially none was installed of yours?

    if you take the knobs off are the pots themselves still tight? if yes there is a problem with the pot.


    *as an aside, are you in one of my 3D printed housings? if yes, PM me and i'll offer you some advice in what could be the cause.


    Tbh I can't even remove the knobs, i'm pulling harder than I would need to with any other pedal I have and they aren't moving at all.. I think I might contact Panda and see what they say. 

  7. All you needed to say was "yes that is damage not dirt". I wasn't attacking you, I was simply asking so I can be sure of condition (as the previous commenter also did) as I know of someone else selling the same model Proton in better condition.

    I am aware you offered G&S if the buyer covers fees. I personally have never bought of someone who asked this, nor have I ever asked a buyer to cover fees when I've sold items. It's not against any rules though so, that's your choice. 

    Nobody slandered anyone, I did not falsely accuse you of anything. I simply expressed why I may be reluctant to commit to buying this, which I believe to be fair enough seeing as I cannot see any items you've yet sold and therefore there is no feedback available. 

    Good luck with your sale.

  8. Is that dirt on the font on the top of the pedal or damage? A little bit put off by the condition and that you're asking for people to send money by F&F... That's usually banned on most sites as it's how people get scammed. I see at least one person get scammed due to paying by F&F on Facebook per week.

    If you just want to replace one individual patch with another then first find a patch on the pedal that you want to overwrite. Then find the file on your PC of the patch you wish to write to the pedal. Rename this file so that it starts with the two-digit prefix of the slot into which you wish to load it. Open the renamed file again via the editor then click “write single file to pedal” and it will get loaded into that slot.

    If you want to load multiple files at once onto the pedal then it’s best to create a folder, copy in the PC files you want to load onto the pedal. Then rename each file with the slot numbers you want them to go, choose that folder via the editor then click “write all”. Any blanks will be skipped over and left untouched in the pedal.

    Is it possible to switch existing patches this way? For example I want the first 9 patches to be the ones I use most often, and there are one or two (such as 32 and 43) that I would like to swap in for 4 and 7. 
    Can I simply change the file names (so change 04 to 32 and 07 to 43 and vice versa for both) as you suggest and then 'write all'? Or is this only for adding new patches?

  10. Thanks for the suggestions so far think I might go to a shop and try a multiplexer out, if it's not what I need, then I'll wait and get a Foxrox Octron 3 or a Mutron Octavider. Shame neither is sold in the Uk though ha :(

    If you're OCD about colours then... Can't really help you with that... Although the Octave Multiplexer would fit.

    Yeah no problem! Thanks again

    Valeton do an OC-2 copy for not much, but again, that's not different.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I'll check it out

    I quite liked the Octave Multiplexer I had although it's certainly a different flavour than the OC2. The TC Nether seems like a nice cheap OC2 clone if that's what you're after. My personal fav cheapo octave is the Chord OC-50, which is OC2 based but with a drive option.

    Thanks for the suggestions! To be honest, I'm just looking for a general octaver at this point, the OC2 does what it does and has that smooth mid range sound, but I'm just looking for something perhaps a bit different to the OC2, maybe more 'standard octaver' if that makes sense? I had a Foxrox Octron which had a really nice Octave down. A bit fatter than the OC2, super clean and tracked well. Also had a distorted octave up which had its uses (but not a necessity). 
    I might consider getting one of those again..
    It's a bit silly but I'm picky with colour schemes on my board ha, most of it is black/silver/white so I'm trying to find something that will not only sound right but look right.  

  13. Looking into getting a new octave pedal as the direct signal on my OC2 has gone and the Octave 1 often doesn't cut through by itself.

    Ideally I'd get a MuTron Octavider but I'm looking at cheaper models for the time being. 
    Has anyone had any experience with the Octave Multiplexer? Any good/bad feedback?  I just need a simple octaver really

    I think the answer is - it depends. On your skills mainly. I'll be honest and say if you have to ask the question you shouldn't be attempting it yourself...

    But if you're interested in giving it a go, start with building some basic pedals yourself to get a feel for things before you attempt rehousing something made by somebody else, which is typically more difficult that building from scratch yourself.

    Have a look at pedalparts.co.uk for a start. Also look at the DIY pedal thread here.

    Yeah sounds like a good idea, doing it myself wasn't something I was seriously considering, but was still interested in whether it would be a big job or not.

    Thanks for the advice and info!

    The placement of the octaver in the effects chain plays some role in the tracking performance. Some say that a compressor in front of the octaver helps the tracking.

    I used to run my compressor  everything, including my OC2, but I've just started running the compressor after it as the OC2 can be quite quiet, so the compressor helps bring it up to the same volume as my clean tone.  Something to consider for anyone else having a similar issue with the OC2. 


  16. So I've seen a few really cool pedal rehousing jobs done in the US recently and I was wondering if anyone knows of where to get this kind of thing done in the UK?
    Alternatively, is this kinda possible as a home project for a beginner such as myself? Links to parts or kits would be great.

    Example: This is an example of someone rehousing a Boss OC2. In this case they've removed the second octave.

  17. Basically I've recently bought a Pedaltrain Metro 24 off of somebody but they've put the hook/rough side of the velcro onto the board rather than the loop/soft side...
    So both my pedals and board have hook side on... I'm currently only using 5 or 6 pedals.

    Should I replace the velcro on the board or the pedals? I'd rather change the velcro on the board but I'm not sure how tricky that would be.


  18. All prices include postage. Selling to fund some new purchases. Message me if you've got a Future Impact I. for sale!

    Boss RE-20 Space Echo (Boxed) - SOLD
    One of my favourite delay pedals. The Treble and Bass controls are really useful, especially on bass for removing some low end/boosting treble of the trails.


    Boss TU-3 Tuner - SOLD
    The standard tuner. Lots of use at home and gigs but in great condition
