Need help with setup

Post by CAR-15 » Fri Apr 29, 2016 9:34 pm

I have the following:

Orange Rockerverb 100 MKIII head
G Major 2
Boss NS-2
Small Stone Nano
Micro POG
MXR Carbon copy delay
MXR Auto Q

I am looking for the best way to set this up. If someone could draw up some GCX drawings that would help a lot!

I think, but don't know that the best way to use the G Major 2 is in the FX loop. I would like to use the NS-2 in both the loop to quiet the amp and to quiet the pedals.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Here is a sample diagram that has four pedals routed to the front of the amp, two effects in the amp's effects loop, and two GCX Loops being used to do the footswitch functions on the amp. ... _AmpSw.pdf

If you will not be running the NS-2 in a GCX Loop then you can use the last three GCX Loops to control the three footswitchable functions on your amp.

I am running a GMAJ2 with my GCP and GCX. I also have an NS from Boss. However, I am not using my Boss Noise Gate. The GMAJ2 has an onboard noise gate that is awesome! I have removed a lot of noise by adjusting the parameters (EQ/Noise Gate on the left of the GMAJ2 panel). When you are in the Noise Gate parameter, rotate the wheel (right side of your GMAJ2) until an acceptable level of noise is present or there is no noise at all... This has worked really well for me. I hope it does for you as well!
