    Howdy,

    I just got my TP, and want to soliciate some suggestions from other users. I wanted to put in after my first stage effects (Timmy, Direct Drive, Fuzz, Phaser, RMC2 Wah) and before my 2nd Stage effects (Chours, Delay, Boost) to even out the sound. Right now I run it at [volume 2, blend about 12, sustain 1ish]. Just curious how other folks use it?

    Thanks!

    I have it placed first on my board in front of the amp, vol. at 2, blend at 11, and sustain at 3.

    After the wah and before everything else. Volume @ 2.5. Blend @ 11. Sustain @ 11.

    I have the internal trim dimed in at the full "treble" setting (allowing the treble to come through - opposite the "vintage" setting), have sustain at something like 11:00, blend at 10-11:00 and volume at whatever unity volume happens to be.

    Very similar to other suggestions here. Some variations:

    Fat/Clean Lead boost:
    Volume MAX
    Blend 10:00
    Sustain 11:00

    Liquidy Lead boost:
    Volume MAX
    Blend 1:00
    Sustain 2:00

    Chicken Pickin:
    Volume 3:00
    Blend MAX
    Sustain 12:00

    Here's what mine usually looks like...

    It's a pretty subtle setting. Just kinda makes things a little more balanced, a little punchier, and a little 'prettier' somehow. It is always on as part of my base tone.

    Wow, interesting settings BFC...
    Mine has a significant volume drop at that setting.

    The Launch Pad affects where the volume on the Tone Press is set. I should have mentioned that.

    Tuner -> Wah -> Tone Press -> Everything else. I run it with volume just a little higher than unity, blend at 12 o'clock, and sustain at 3 o'clock.

    Thanks all you TP users, I am really digging the pedal. I will have to open it up and mess with the trim pot. I will also try the liquidy boost setting......

    Thanks again

    Would this be the pot fully clockwise or counter-clockwise? The documentation is based on the initial setting which I have since changed.
