    Easily one of my favorite pedals. Sounds fantastic with the stock sounds but when you add in the tone print capability it elevates it to an entirely new level.

    My iPhone is clamped to the mic stand. I can't remember all the lyrics to an ever-changing 3 hour set of songs, so the airturn lets me change the page in the app where I have my lyrics without being totally obvious about it.

    I kicked the Rat off (heresy, I know!) to make room for the Pelitaur. I'm enjoying the change so far...now all I have to do is arrange my cables in a more aesthetically pleasing way :oops:

    Awesome. I use one to run the metronome for church. Great tools!

    Is anybody using bypass loopers? If so, why? Do you notice a benefit?

    Yes (see post above). The SlideRig and the DM-2w both have quality buffers, in fact the latter is a noticeable improvement on the old Boss buffer, hence the DM-3 is bypassed to prevent loss of presence, sparkle, whatever. All the other pedals are true bypass (or in the case of the MXR, near as dammit).

    Gotcha. All my pedals are true bypass, except for a TU-2, and I have my blueSky set for buffered bypass.

    The TU-2 is halfway down my chain, the blueSky at the end. So I'm pondering wether or not I need a bypass looper for anything. I'm thinking no...

    All of my pedals that are buffered just happen to be the noisemakers that I generally use together in various combinations, so I have the buffered pedals all in one true bypass effects loop.
    My first motivation to do this is to isolate all the buffers. I know it's popular now to have one high quality buffer or whatever, but I prefer zero. I think there is no overdrive pedal or 1:1 amplifier circuit that can do for a pickup what a high voltage tube preamp circuit can do. There is a push/pull thing, or something going on with a guitar connected directly to a tube amp. For roots music, the responsiveness to my fingers and attack is better than any effect, so I frequently play with all pedals off.
    Modern rock players aren't likely to notice the difference in amp response if they only play with a pick and always have at least one pedal on.

    Interesting. I'm a little torn, since my thought was to get the guitar to amp thing by removing as many pedals from my chain and thus removing the cabling in between. However, I often use an OD stacked with another OD or a boost, plus a delay, maybe trem, and some reverb. If I put all those in loops, I'd be DOUBLING the amount of cabling I'm going through!

    My current pedalboard; just rearranged it this afternoon. Signal path is :
    Boss NS2 - PolyTune noir - Dunlop Cry Baby Wah - TC Spark Booster - Boss LS2 (signal A: BB Preamp - EHX Pitchfork - Wampler Velvet Fuzz) (signal B: Wampler Euphoria - Neo Ventilator) - Xotic RC Booster - Boss tremolo /w Keeley mod - Boss DD5 - Digitech Polara reverb - Morley ABY switch (going to a Fender Blues Deluxe RI and a Fender Bassbreaker 45)

    An OD is an amplifying circuit, as most pedals are, so when you're using a pedal it's extra cable is buffered.
    I feel confident my large pedalboard is adding capacitance less than an extra 15 ft of cable with everything in play, but with the effects loop bypassed it's less than 5. Maybe 3 ft.
    If you really just want to be able to get a direct to amp sound occasionally, just put your whole pedalboard circuit in a true bypass loop, and when it's on maybe you have 6 feet extra cable if you use two 3 footers. When it's off, the extra cable is out of play and you have two cables total of whatever lengths you choose going to your amp.
