Been wanting to have a bit more of a flexible setup recently and not necessarily use my big Diago board all the time. My PT-Mini is just a little too small for what I want so I ordered a PT-Jr which arrived today. Very much a lockdown problem stemming from boredom as I'll not be practicing or gigging for a while! I love putting boards together so it has been a fun couple of hours. Anyway, now I've got my new board and optional extension board Laughing

Managed to squeeze a Fuzz Face mini onto my board so that has been a lot of fun today Very Happy



Signal path is: Fuzz Face -> Crybaby -> Super Hard On -> TU-2 -> Viscous Vibe -> SY-1 (+Expression Pedal) + JB-2 in the SY-1 loop (with switch for BD-2/Angry Charlie modes) -> Pipeline Trem

Burstin' with TOANS, good job smooshing that lil' Face in there too!

How're you finding the SY-1? I keep having to sit down to twirl dials for an hour or so, just to try and map out the sounds I like! The eternal balance of 'fun immediate dials vs. cold hard presets' ehhhh

Yes indeed! I'm really liking the SY-1 I have to say, had it about 6 months now so have got a good few settings that I love and are really usable in a band context without being over the top (at least theoretically in my head until I actually get to a band practice again!). I have spent 80% of my time on the Pad settings and tweaking those. I've found having the expression pedal to be brilliant, as it again makes it more usable for differentiation within a song. Equally, the dirt in the loop is so good. I've found myself spending quite a bit of time getting that wet/dry balance right for various settings. I think my next purchase will be a mini expression pedal so I can fit a delay on the board.

I also did a gig at the end of Jan, a few weeks after I got the SY-1 and the sound guy complemented me on my synth sound so that made me happy Smile

Niiiiice Very Happy I've definitely found sound super interesting textures by reining back the controls a lot, think I'm due another "setting session"; I wrote a load of parts last time.

For real, the loop makes it SO useful to fit into a "normal" pedalboard, something that every other synth pedal I've used or owned struggled with. I defo need to get Boss-friendly expression pedal to have a blast at that side of it, it apparently also takes a momentary(?) footswitch for tap tempo and octave shifts and stuff? Will need to experiment a bit.

I love that there is a pedal called an Angry Driver. Does it nail the tones in Catatonia’s Road Rage?

Oh really? This is new and exciting news! I will have to investigate!

Laughing It sure does!
On a serious note, it's a great pedal, with the series/parallel modes it's really versatile, and especially with the external switch. I think it's brilliant.

I keep getting the urge to pick up an SY-1 but then tell myself I'd just piss about with it for a bit making wacky noises and not get any real use out of it.

THIS ISN'T HELPING

Nice pedal board(s) btw Thom.

That is the intended function of the pedal.

I’ve just splurged on a mini exp pedal so that i can fit a delay on my board, so if you want my M-Audio one for cheepz when it arrives just say the word.

Added a simple patch bay for easy guitar/amp in/out:


And the AMT EX-50 arrived for the SY-1 giving me room to put my delay on the board - happy days!


Also, updated mini board:
