I've been fighting the urge to buy more pedals. I have no more space on my pedalboard, and I still think "Could I squeeze one of those micro pedals in that tiny gap?".

Got my eye on a Mooer Ultra Drive

You don't need reverb, just stack two EQs together with a really long cable

I’ve just unintendly ended up with more space in my place, so I’ve got more than enough space for more stuff, space cries out to be filled up, but when it’s filled up I want to empty it.

If you have a H9 Max, Eventide are currently giving away a license for the H9 Series Plugin Bundle which contains 11 plugins.
Doesn't matter if you bought it new or second hand, as long as it is registered to your account.
The bundle has some good stuff in there and lists at $500.

Had a similar question a few years ago, it fitted! Where there's a will...

Take my advice, I'm not using it.

I am so tempted by the H9, I've nearly bought one on several occasions then I look at it's limitations and decide 'no, to not for me'... If it could string two or, preferably (or more) three virtual pedals together in a singe patch it would be brilliant but it only does a single virtual pedal at a time (admittedly some of them are, effectively two VPs but not many and not particularly useful ones for me). :headbang:

I really wish I hadn't seen that! Now I really want to chance it. I'd have to squeeze it before the tuner pedal though as that's the only space I have left!

Luke, that's a very tidy rig. As a non-gigging (non-) guitarist who has never had to deal with the issues of putting a board together, it would be interesting to know your signal flow and what the different bits are doing here - when you have time :D

It's not a bad bit of kit, not the most exciting thing on the planet but to give it credit it's done exactly what I wanted from it. I was in the middle of building (and still gathering parts for) a rack effects rig and then all of a sudden a band situation changed and I'd got some gigs on the electric guitar coming up, and there was no way I'd have my rig built in time. I only wanted a bit of drive, a basic delay and reverb and the Soulmate was well priced at the time and seemed a better option that buying separate pedals for everything.

The separate sections are all fairly basic, but sound good and offer enough to be useful. What really sold it for me was the fact you can save presets as well as use it like four individual stomp boxes, and the I/O loop lets you seperate the overdrive and distortion from the reverb and delay.

Sorry about that :D

Just spotted this. Thank you!

No problem at all, I can send something over to you a bit later on via PM rather than derail this thread with it :thumbup:

Aw, thanks - but I doubt I would be alone in being interested and it would be pretty well on-topic. Especially if you said which one was your pedal of the week :D

Here's my pedalboard:

I'm thinking if I used flat patch cables, I could squeeze the Ultra Drive in between the BOSS DD-20 and the Morley Bad Horsie, and have it go from the Morley, into the Ultra Drive, then into the BOSS TU-3 tuner. I know you're not supposed to put drives into tuners but I'm not even sure it'll fit into that space to start with

A lot of those pedals you could replace with much smaller mini pedals and give yourself more room.
