Re:Interactive-Graphical Tour of a Guitar System

Am I correct in assuming that most digital FX run your signal through the converters even in bypass? Is the Vortex like that, f'rinstance?
BTW, my coal-burning modem won't play me any samples from the Interactive-Graphical Tour, so I may need some sonic descriptions:  I see the red Boss half-rack does synth... can it approximate the Wakeman mellotron sound? Does it do Sheltering Sky/Nuages '81-84 Crimson gtr synth?

hi Krispen,
It seems your signal passes through an awful lot of devices.
Might be worth checking the quality of the bypass on those units.

...and as you've got a mixer in your setup, no need to stick to an 'all in series' configuration.

For instance, you could run the EDPs on the Alt3-4 outputs of your 1202 mixer, and bring them
back on a stereo channel.
The EDP mix controls are then both put to max and forgotten. 
...and it's then dead easy to run a mic into the EDPs if that becomes necessary.

Also it's worthwhile putting a reverb on an aux send, one advantage being that reverb
will sound more natural after the EDPs. ( because of loop boundaries, and reverse).

Or put a chain of FX on each aux send, bringing them back on a stereo channel.

I really liked the sound demos you did,
great stuff.
