Hey guys,
I have been struggling with a Supra Trem I got for Xmas for 3weeks now, I just couldnt dial it in... Anyway I took it back and found a Analog Modded TR-2 Bodd tremolo on Ebay the same day... Long story short it took me all of 2minutes to find a sound I liked, go figure. Dont get me wrong I am not bashing Fulltone as I have 4 other pedals of his on my board I just am amazed that a Boss pedal sounded better to me.
So now my question,
Where do I put it in my signal chain?
I run my pedals like this:
Clyde
OctaFuzz
Old Orange FM Fulldrive
Anv. Mosfet Fulldrive
Sparkle Drive
Fat Boost
Mini Deja vibe
Boss TU-2
Volume Pedal
Boss DD-3
Boss DM-2

Where should the Trem go?
Thanks alot guys

I'd put it after the volume pedal, before the delays or after the Fat Boost ... I run my trem right after the dirt pedals, before the delay.

I run like this:

Clyde Deluxe
Keeley BD-2
Hellbilly
Mosfet Custom Shop Fulldrive (red)
Keeley Katana Boost
Supatrem
Keeley CE-2
PH-1r Phaser
Volume (tuner bypassed-on all the time)
DD-5 w/ FS-5U
Keeley AD-9
Dr Scientist RRR

After dirt, before delay. You'll just wanna play with it if you plan on running it with your Mini Deja. What modulation you want in front... Make sense? You gotta remember the order of your modulations affects alot of the shape you're going to get..

I run mine last because I have a few amps that have trem in them, so it just sounds natural to me last in the chain. Most guys run theirs second to last, right before delay. Bottom line, run it where it sounds best to you.

i've always prefered mine after a delay, or if using two delays sandwiched between them. the end of my chain is typically delay>tremolo>looper

Depends on what kind of effect you want. I prefer it before dirt pedals. Sounds more organic that way, the way it distorts more on the peaks.

I did a little research on this as well when putting my board together, and after a lot of experimentation, I found that I like it dead last, even after delays. I am used to it being in amps as well, so when running all your pedals into the input of an amp with tremolo, it will be after delays anyway. I like to think of tremolo as more of a global effect. It doesn't sound right for a tremolo-effected signal to go into a delay. But, a delayed signal sounds great (to me) when it is finally effected by the tremolo.

Granted, most of the time, the majority of us probably aren't going to run heavy delays and tremolo at the same time, I wouldn't think. Sometimes, but usually not.

I run it last right before my Launch Pad (buffer). I like to treat it like amp tremolo. I guess it depends and what you are after sound wise. In my head I always hear things like vintage fender amp trem with pedals (dirt/delay) going into the amp.
