Looking for advice on equipment & pedal order on board

Post by mmarino51589 » Mon Jun 24, 2019 10:21 am

Greetings, all!

First post here - I'm going to be purchasing some new equipment and using some existing equipment, and was looking for some suggestions to make sure I'm not overlooking/overcomplicating things

Currently have:
BOSS MT-2 Metal Zone
BOSS BF3 Flanger
BOSS DS-1 Distortion
BOSS NS-2 Noise Supressor
Generic non-name chorus pedal (same power requirements as Boss pedals)
Morley Bad Horsie 2
Line 6 G30 wireless relay

Will be buying:
Voodoo Labs Dingbat Medium w/ Power Plus II

I think I know how I'm going to set these up, but want to run it by you all for some advice:

On the board (in order):
-Line 6 G30
-Morley Bad Horsie 2
-Input of NS2 Noise Supressor
-Send of NS2 Noise Supressor to Boss DS-1 Distortion
-Boss MT-2 Metal Zone
-Boss BF3 Flanger
-Chorus
-Back to the return of NS2 Noise Supressor
-Output from Noise Supressor to the amp

Does this sound right to you all? Thanks so much in advance for any help you guys can offer!

PS: Based on my research and reading, it looks like the Power Plus II should handle all of this without issue...please feel free to chime in and e-slap me for being a dope if I'm wrong!

Thanks again!

You got the power right!

The Pedal Power 2+ will power all your pedals, no problem.

Only the G-30 and NS-2 have any special attention. These can each be powered from Output 5 or 6 with the corresponding DIP Switch set to Normal.
Each of your other pedals can be powered from any output with the corresponding DIP Switch set to Normal.

Your pedal order seems perfectly fine. Do you have a lot of noise generally if you bypass the NS-2 or do you use it for the Mute Mode?

I'd only run the distortion in noise gate fx loop. That's the only piece bound to generate noise anyway. Pedal order seems fine to me.
