not exactly a pedalboard per se...
« on: October 17, 2019, 09:55:32 PM »
I guess it's time to unveil my big project. Well, big for me anyway.

I don't like the idea of having to bend over to tweak the settings on my Bass effects, so I decided to make all of them rack-mountable.
Since my day job is that of a Crestron Programmer, I managed to collect several Old discontinued devices from various jobs, each with matching 1/2 U wide x 1U tall enclosures as well as brackets to mount 2 Enclosures per rack space. my current collection includes:
1. Power Conditioner made with parts gutted out of a high end surge suppressor power strip.
2. 9v Power supply pulled from another piece of A/V equipment, currently single supply running daisy-chained to all effects.
3. MBP Nom Nom
4. VFE BumbleBee
5. MBP SnarkDoodle
6. MBP Lowrider
7. Someone else's MutronIII copy
8. Someone else's Chorus
9. Someone else's Bass Preamp

On it's way is a Korg Pitchblack tuner.

Which leaves me with room for one more item. (what else should a Bass rack have?)

I'm really hoping that the "comming soon" Softie is what I think it is, because my next desire is to convert most of the effects into relay control w/ momentary SPST triggers, then set up some sort of cable (midi) to a remote set of footswitches so I can still activate/deactivate on the fly.

And yes, I need to re-do my graphics, and get more creative with names.
