Turbo Tuner Placement

Well, I read through like the last 6 months of posts about anything related to tuners and couldn't really find the answer. Most of the subject was on the TU-2.

Anyways, I just picked up a Turbo Tuner and am trying to figure out the best place to put it in the chain. Right now I am running it Tone Press > Turbo Tuner > (tim on order) > Fulldrive II > EB Vol > Nova Delay > Amp

Eventually I want to add either a trem or phaser somewhere in there, but I am wondering about the Turbo Tuner for now. Since I run my compressor all the time, should I put it before the compressor? I have also noticed a lot of people have their tuners real late in the signal chain, wouldn't this mean you would have to turn off all the pedals before it prior to tuning?

Any help would be great!

i run mine after my dirt pedals so that i can quickly mute all the gain, then turn the pedals off.

i dont use a compressor, i would try the tuner before and after abd see how it responds.

It's true bypass, so when off, it's just like having a few extra inches of cable on your board.

When on, it's a mute... so at the begining? Unless you mute with lots of high-gain pedals on, then at the end might work but I find it tunes better without any active pedals in front of it.

I agree it seems to track a little better in front of any active pedals.

to clarify-

i dont have any non true bypass pedals in front of the TT.
i dont tune with my two OD/booster pedals turned on.
i just like being able to turn my mute on after my gain pedals, so that at the end of a song i can press one button on my tuner and mute my signal instantly, then turn of my gain pedals and tune.
