    just put together my board together and the LM is just making all sorts of siren and squealing noises when I add other pedals- ods auto wah boosts.
    Is it an impedance thing somewhere?

    order is
    LM>>bjfe MGMV>>MP SWAW>>SHO>>PGC>>HBOD>>KLON>>VOL DODFX17>>SDD 3KP

    all pedals are in their own loops in a looper except vol and sdd 3kp

    any time I add something to the LM the whole rig squeals, and this is not at loud volumes, its an AST on about 3-4, so med vol at the most.
    When I add SWAW I get siren sounds.

    and I thought the LM could happily go anywhere in the chain.
    cos its a fuzz I thought, well maybe it should be first.

    any clues/solutions would be greatly appreciated :)

    what are you powering it with? I had my LM on an unregulated supply and thought it was a really noisy pedal, until I tried a better adapter. It could be a power supply issue.

    And yes, I've had mine everywhere in the chain and it sounds good

    Posts that I have seen from Marc (Skreddy) and his contact with me when I purchased my LM dlx shows that he's responsive to clients' issues.
    Might I suggest that you contact him?

    rollo you got it.
    it was a power issue, I had it daisy chained to 2 other pedals

    once I gave it its own isolated supply from the PP2 all was good, very very good indeed
    :)

    so lesson to take away from this is LM cannot be daisy chained for power

    When I first had the LM, I daisy chained it with no real problem, certainly it is quieter on an isolated power, but your case shows sometimes its needs that.
