Do you find different sounds in the Memory Lane compared to the Iridium? Would have thought the Studio setting with judicious use of wear and mechanics could get pretty close.

Hey do you mean the Volante?

I actually have both specifically to make different sounds, so haven’t spent a lot of time trying to achieve that. But I am absolutely certain it could be done - the tweakability is pretty amazing and it could be recalled with Midi.

It’s one of a kind. Hard to use, but has a lot of charisma and charm. Love it.

Yep that's what I mean. Iridium and Memory Lane don't cover particularly similar ground.

I’ve yet to make a riser for the back row of pedals (Fulltone Supa Trem, Red Panda Tensor, Boss DD-8, Klinger Fuzz) but that’s in limbo a bit until I can sort some more RA RCA jacks for power. It’s all good fun though. Learning lots along the way. Soldering and heat shrink are cool :)

Another thing. Is it ok to chain the power supplies for digital pedals together or do they need individually isolated supplies for each pedal?
Welcome to the forum. Regarding daisy chaining... it depends on the current draw of each individual pedal in the chain. Make sure the combined pedal current draw doesn't exceed the output of the power supply. :-)

I have run a mix of daisy chains and single cables from an isolated supply for many years, as Danny said it comes down to current draw on each output, but also some pedals will just get noisy on a daisy chain and need their own output, also in rare cases you might have a pedal with +ve ground like some fuzzes which require an isolated output of their own.
Thanks for the welcomes. I checked the current draw totals and pin orientations (all pin -ve) and have a daisy chain to power all the analogue pedals (Snouse BB, Timmy, Supa Trem, JHS Emperor and Klinger Buzz Fuzz) off the 800 mA supply output of the Cioks so should be well covered. Am I right in thinking the digital pedals are more fussy about ‘clean’ power supply and best run on their own isolated supply from the Cioks? I have enough individual supplies on the Cioks at the right amps for my current pedals but I might want to run another digital pedal as a daisy chained side-car to this board in the future.

I can't help with RA plugs, but I've made my own cables for my Cioks DC10 from old audio cables. Easy enough, just need to remember the Cioks outputs are centre + and (most) pedals are centre - so you need to flip the cable when you join it up.

Looks like straight RCA plugs would still fit? Or would that ruin the aesthetics?
Thanks. Yeah, beats having to keep it all in my bowling bag. I just hope no one decides to micturate all over it.

Far out! I was going to test everything before throwing the switch but I didn’t know that about Cioks outputs. I’ve tested the ones I’ve made up and they were all centre +ve! My pedals are all centre -ve! You’ve saved me a lot of heart-ache :thumbup:
Straight RCAs would do but would seriously mess with my OCD and my need to keep my cabling as tidy as possible. As my dad says, “the guitar geeks at the show are going to scan the talent boxes, not the cables, so show ‘em off dude” :lol:

Welcome our Dude, we abide. Well that's just, like, your pedlaboard, man.
Thanks. Lots of abiding going on here. And yeah, obviously I’m not a golfer :thumbup:

I use 2 presets on the SA170 to balance the level difference between my Gretsch and LP Jnr and the other 2 to optionally tweak the eq and clean boost slightly each guitar. I have my drive pedals in a loop in the EQ2 which has presets for a variety of pre and/or post drive eq settings to maximise my drive sounds with what I have. One setting is a massive clean boost just to shut Donny up :D

Signal chain:
Fasel Wah > Benson Germanium Fuzz > ES8 > Bondi Sick As > Drybell Vibe Machine > Benson Germanium Boost > Origin Cali76 > JAM Harmonious Monk > Memory Lane > Volante > Walrus Slö > MTL Count to 5 > Mesa Mark V.

I don't expect to change this unless I came across a Fairfield Circuitry compressor or an interesting fuzz mini pedal. :)

Pedal chain: Korg Tuner -> Compressor Mini -> Tumnus -> Clusterfuzz -> Phase 95 -> Analog Delay -> Ditto.
I usually have compressor, tumnus and delay always on.

Pedalboard: Rockboard Duo 2.1
Powersupply: 1 Spot Pro CS 6
Nice. My Tumnus arrived last week. Think I'll tape over the led as well. It's blinding!

Absolute PITA. A blight on an otherwise great PS.

I gather its a "you have to buy our cables" sorta thing?
Nothing to see here.
