How's the Iconoclast? Looks like you're running the pedals through it and then using the headphone out? Does it sound decent with dirt?

In the software by default the Headphones out is at +6 dB, which is kind of too much, I lowered it at 0dB, and there's still a lot of gain out of it.
I made a (very) noisy experiment with it, recording is not made via the Headphone out, but the main L/R out : https://soundcloud.com/soundisall/le-facteur-humain

The Iconoclast is loaded with the Vox AC30 emulation, tweaked a little bit (I added some Fizz), preset coming from here https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/neunabe ... t-t79.html

So yes it handles very well the noise, and yesterday I made some experiments more focused on dirt (with the Fuck overdrive), and it was good for me, regarding the fact I'm not a guitar player.

Seriously stopped fucking about and have settled on this. I have a few more pedals that I like, and I'm keeping hold of (they're all discontinued) but they're stowed away so I can get on with playing with what I actually need. It's liberating both in terms of playing and my mental health, as I've stopped mindlessly browsing for toys I don't need and shouldn't be buying anyway.

"Always on" box is a SHO, last in line is a Surfy Bear tremolo (Fender black/brown style)

Fuzz is always optional off-board, but I've narrowed that selection down too. I think I'll always settle on scooped and potentially "synthy" fuzzies. Most likely an FY-2 Companion and/or an Elk Gakki Triangle style Muff. I can go without for now, but at least I know what I need rather than want.

Very nice setup, Wet into Rat has to sound killer.

Not the most "wow" board to look at, but it makes all the right noises for our band's noises.
The AUX is my only dirt (in the classic sense) - it's a light, gravel-y, classic LED/germanium clipping souped-up treble boost into a SHO (for the mids). I use it to accentuate certain parts, but most of the "distortion" in my sound comes from overloading the reverb on my amp.
The little guy underneath is the tap for the DD7 and the dedicated "stop" for the RC1.
Gotta have the DD7 for those dotted 8ths!
Spring Chicken because that reverb is absolute perfection, goosing a Super Reverb with the Reverb already on 10 :love:
Sea Machine is set to sound like a cold, watery slap from an amp being isolated in a cold, concrete and metal room, hahahaha
The DE7 is always-on and set to mimic a dirty tape delay, whirring away in the background between songs
The bottom left is a Freeze to get those moody/vibe-y sound pads and textures.
And the Hummingbird chops up the trem on the Super, for glitchy trem sounds.

having the tap tempo and stop button on one switch is a pretty good idea

Re: Let's see your PEDAL BOARD!

Thanks. I tried to make the most out of it, hahaha... unfortunately, I have to have a dedicated stop if the RC is going to be of any use to me - I seriously suck at double-tapping while still strumming in time.

nobody can double tap their looper and continue to look cool

I've been through so many reverbs and don't remember "why" I sold my Spring Chicken. Loved that I could just use my foot to increase the level and get what I needed.

Yep! And with the LE version, rolling the dwell with your foot to adjust the density and hang of the verb before hitting oscillation is pretty fantastic.
It's funny... I went on a bit of a quest, because my silver LE Chicken was acting up and I didn't think i'd be able to find another Spring Chicken to replace it. I did finally find that pink one, but before I did - after trying a bunch of different reverbs, i never found another reverb that had that same pre-delay and interacted with other pedals/amps the way the Chicken does. I'm super bummed they've discontinued them. I wish they're release the schematic so I could build an army of backups...
:lol:

A setup I putted together for a solo-noise concert I'll play in 2 weeks. Main noise sources are that piezo shaker (MASF SCM DIY_Clone/workalike) and the Volca Kick (which can produce also very sublime subbass drones). I must admit is works flawlessly with my baritone guitar too!

That box over the Volca is an AB-Box/Passive-4-channel-mixer I've built myself.

I know I’m real bad about staying active here, but I felt like posting the latest of my board. Been through a reverb journey for the past couple of years, and now I have the Proverb and Flint that are covering every possible need I could want. I don’t see myself really changing anything on this board except for the DE-7, which I’m still on the fence about replacing with either some modulation or another delay. Playing “post metal” for the most part, but I kind of feel I need some diversity outside of reverb and delay.
