bkd_guitarist, good info! Which power amp do you use? Some folks have recommended Freyette.
Do you know how Liquid Foot Jr. compares to Digitech's Controller2? I'll definitely be needing an expression pedal and will check that out.
I do have my own dedicated monitor on stage, but would also like to explore FRFR monitor for both home and stage use. An In-Ear set up is a great idea as well.
Which rack brand do you use?
bkd_guitarist, which controller do you use? Do you have a dedicated sound guy, and have you had any problems going directly to the board, especially with different sound guys?
