So my mate John Browne introduced me to the good people at Ampete and now I have turned my “practice rig” into a multi amp midi switching behemoth. I decided I wanted a 444 because I was sick of plugging and unplugging whatever amp I wanted to use. When it showed up I programmed my board to just recall all of my favorite channels on my VHT CL, bogner twin jet and diezel Herbert. Yes it’s a bit excessive but it’s also sick. It’s the only amp switcher that allows you to use a common fx loop. At home I run it into a Two Notes captor which goes straight into DAW and I use IR’s from times we’ve recorded or the Neural plugins with everything but the cab turned off. The board has an RJM PBC at the center with a digitech drop, Empress compressor, TS808HW, archer clean & swollen pickle in front. In the FX loop at the start is a sound sculpture volcano that lets me use an exp pedal to control volume without any tone or gain loss. Fortin zuul using key input from the radial io, MXR EQ for radio effect, Empress reverb and echosystem. It’s a lot of fun, hopefully this covid 19 thing doesn’t lead to me selling all of it for toilet paper and bread.
