    Pedalboard/Switching System layout has forced me to put a whammy after my analog delay pedals (DM-2 for slapback and Moogerfooger M-104M for longer delay)...Anyone use their whammy or pitch-shifter after their delays? Why or why not?

    Most pitch shifters can handle polyphony (multiple notes at once), so if a note you're playing collides with a different note that has been delayed, it could make it fart out. I think the Whammy is polyphonic though, so you might be ok. Only risk is that it doesn't track as well and gets some notes confused...

    It might sound kind of cool, actually. But it definitely won't sound "normal."

    You can use a pitch shifting pedal in Timeline's loop, sounds nice!

    I use mine in-between delays (DD7 before and VMSD after my Eventide PF). Sometimes, I use the DD7 into the PF, while other times, I feed the PF into the VMSD. I really depends what type of effect I'm after, and, IMO, the PF deals very well with upstream and downstream delay.
