I have a gig tonight and was thinking about changing my order. Let me know what order you guys think I should set up these pedals.

Rat Dist. , Fulltone OCD, Fulltone Bass-Drive Mosfet, Boss Chorus, Boss Digital Delay, Boss Space Echo, Elect. Harmonix Bass- Micro Synth, Digitech Whammy, Electro Harmonix Phaser, Electro Harmonix Loop Station, Electro Harmonix Ravi Sitar, Moog Ring Mod.

The end of my chain is going to be a delay (deciding between space echo and digi delay) into volume pedal into electro harmonix looper into electro harmonix Hum Debugger

My sound is very electronic/ ambient/ dark. I like to really experiment with sounds.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Tuner, whammy (it needs the cleanest guitar signal to sound best), overdrives (low to high gain), synth/chorus/phasers, then volume pedal, digital delay and space echo.

Cool! Are you a bassist or guitarist? The drive placement really depends on how you use them honestly, besides that it seems like you have it down! As far as modulation, it depends how you use that as well, and im sure others will have different opinions than me, but ultimately its whatever sounds best to you...I would put phaser and whammy before your drives and put the chorus after...don't use a micro synth so not sure, as nels cline uses his post-everything for effecting, but if your lookin for funk tones then i would put it as close to your guitar as you can, hope that helps a little if any

interesting I always put the whammy at the end cause I like how it distorted the sound in a weird way. tuner was just connected to my volume pedal.

I am a guitar player

*not the very end but after the microsynth, and dist/od pedals. Also I am always curious on where I should spread out my OD/dist pedals in between fx and if so what should come first and what should be intertwined

(influences are NIN, Radiohead, Portishead, Mars Volta)

Seems like everyone said what I was going to :)
I always like to keep my ODs/DSes from low gain to high gain in my signal chain!

which ones would be considered low gain and which ones would be considered high gain? Im guessing the WMD, Mosfet- Bass-Drive and OCD are all high gain and the rat is low gain?
