    Pretty standard I know, but i've mixed things up heaps in the past 6 months.
    Heres my FX with a possible addition of a MXR 10 band EQ.
    Cantrell Wah
    Visual Sound XO
    MI Audio Tube Zone
    TC Alter Ego X4
    Boss ME5
    TC Polytune
    MXR 10 Band ( This is on the shopping list ) But wondering if the ME5 would suffice.
    Keep in mind i prefer Delay and mods and EQ in the loop, but open to suggestions.
    I don't really need the ME5 on the board but was thinking it could well substitute for an EQ + mods or even 4CM.
    The Comp and Chorus in the ME5 are fantastic + it has the EQ , delays and verbs are OK but not necessary ATM.
    I can hook up the TC AEX4 with midi to the ME5 but have only tried it quickly.

    So for a bit of fun, How would you hook it all up.
    Guitars into board into Laney VH100R.
    Curious to read your thoughts.
    GO !!

    Yes to this, but modulation can be before distortion too. I particularly like Phaser or Vibe pre distortion. Chorus, Flanger, etc sound better after distortion.

    Yeah simple I now.
    But thought about being creative with all pedals mentioned.
    ME5 included, ( 4CM, just in loop for eq mods delays, verb), TZ between the VSXO sides, what order for the VSXO, wah, dirt before ME5, then looped for time based FX. With AEX4 in that loop, linked via MIDI so it can be switched in and out via MIDI message.
    I probably won't use the ME5 (bought it as a fun grab n go board), but thought it would be interesting to hear how you guys might put it All together.
