Anyone use FX pedals/DIY gizmos in their live setup and if so what? (Particularly as desktop fx, but all you axe-lords, feel free to chime in).
I've been mucking about with some DIY pedals lately and quite enjoying it (tonebender, red llama, reverb, delay, envelope filter and a few others).
It's a nice break from staring at a computer screen.
Still thinking of how to best incorporate them into a live setup, I was thinking of maybe 3 or 4 fx chains of 3 or 4 pedals in each, going in and out of the interface.
I'm in the process of making some router/fx looper type boxes for versatility.
One thing I've been wondering about is how important impedance matching is when using a line level into the pedals and if it's worth getting a reamp box or something?
There's a lot of interesting non-traditional fx out there in DIY land these days.
