Mad Scientist Effects Set up
Got another 13 year old BP-8 Preamp/Multi Effects unit for Christmas ($100), and had the Power supply attachment point modified in my old and NTM unit with a Right Angle XLR ($100) so it will not easily come unplugged and damage my gear.
Pictures are attached to lower response to the Righteous Revolt demanding Pics.
I am technoChallenged so I did not figure out how to make the pics part of the message.
Pedal Set up...
It is Two Boss BCB-60's, set up one cascading down to the next.
I plug into the top first ( R>L EQ-20<OD-20<PS-5<SYB-5) and then to the bottom (L>R PH-3>BF-3>CE-20>DD-20)
Signal then runs the width of the board to the left to:
1 Digitech BP-8 (the foundational tone is made here-Chorus is handy-volume control-Tuner)
Which then runs to the Right of the BCB array, to a splitter:
Side 1 goes into an 'A/B or A&B' Switch
Side 2 goes into a Second Digitech BP-8 (which runs into B of the A/B or A&B Switch)
This is where things get exotic:
disengaged from the system I can preset the unit (Tube overdrive Phaser/Flanger/Whammy/octaver/synth/Tremelo plus Reverb, and yet another Delay) to then be engaged with a True bypass switch either taking over the Tone or mixing these signals with the foundational Tone signal...without the drop out that the BP-8 switches are known for.
The BP-8 requires that you commit to the preset having Delay or/and Reverb in or Out, and there is a a switchable Modulation Effect. So, if I want to add delay or reverb with one unit, I have to change presets and there is a drop out during the switch. I cannot add other modulation effects that the unit can do as it can only do one at a time.
In the dual set up I can add things, like Reverb on top of the Boss DD-20, or another modulation or the Wah Pedal, at will and no drop out.
I also now possess a Back-up BP-8 as my foundational tube tone source, and it was cheaper than any reverb pedal or Wah pedal togther.

That's pretty wild. Mind boggling for an old guy like me.
I have one BP-8. I love that I can EQ to a room or hall
so well with it.
It's a little much for home. I got mine with a power
supply on eBay real cheap. It turned out to be way
better pedal than I thought it was.

I think this thread might get shut down without them.
