I can get wacky, negative effect from many of my pedals without the buffer in front. Damn- get a friggin' boss tuner, get your power buffered and get back your tone. Stupid is as stupid does. This guy has complained elsewhere and been given sound guidance on what to do- yet this cat still wants to grind is axe in a public forum- Those that try to help are likely frustrated. what's that saying about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?
