@btdvox Thanks for the feedback - good to know it works with the G2. I need to get my board setup now to get the G2 working. Need to finish the studio foist though! I have all the modules you mention except the VH4, so will be interesting to know which one didn't impress you. @gtr37 I had a play through the setup again today and what I would say is that the Synergy system is definitely noisier than my DS40. However, I turned the master on the DS way up when running a Synergy module and the noise was acceptable to me, I certainly won't need a mouse gate but then I don't normally play very heavy music. I had a long shot of the BE module today, alongside the Plexi module. I now realise how close the BE module feels to the BE100 I had, and why I liked it so much. Much more cutting that the (host) DS preamp. With the BE there is something very different to all other modules going on in the mids which makes for very addictive playing. One thing I didn't like so much was that I felt I couldn't get enough bottom end, even with the bass cranked right up. However, perhaps this is because Im more used to the DS preamp which naturally has so much more bottom end. Much like the Metroplex module, the BE Module B/M/T are all very interactive and small changes can make a big difference. I haven't cranked the BE module yet and it may open it up. The BE100 had C45 and FAT switches which I normally ran with on, but they module doesn't have these options. It feels to me like the BE module has the C45 circuit engaged but no FAT circuit. Its a shame this hasn't been included, as I expect it should be easy enough. Also, I remember the original BE having a tad more gain on tap on the BE channel. Not sure if there is any difference between the channels but I liked the red channel better. All this was my impression playing through a tone machine CS strat which has pretty hot single coils. I broke a string on the gibson LP so couldn't play hum buckers. I loved the BE100, but I don't particularly like big heads anymore and prefer practical combos. I loved the BE100 sound and although its very much the honeymoon period, I can see this module becoming a favourite. It may be that it fits a mix situation perfectly. I think the BB/BE combo is a smart move. I suppose the proof of the pudding is I can't stop thinking about how much I loved that BE mid thing and that I am dying to get back to play it some more.
