    I need some insight on putting my pedals in the correct order.

    I have:
    Ibanez rg7321 Emg 81-7
    5150ii
    4u rack w/ power cond, tuner, drawer
    Krankenstein cab

    Homemade pedalboard
    Ibanez turbo ts-9
    Arion sch-1 chorus
    Boss ns-2
    Dunlop dime wah
    isp decimator
    Boss dd-5
    Gator 8 jack pedal power

    I want one gate in the loop and one on the board.

    For the pedalboard

    Guitar > Wah > Chorus (Optional) > OD > ISP > Amp

    Loop Send > NS-2 > Chorus (optional) > DD5 > Loop Return

    that setup my ns-2 doesnt work well cus the od is too loud. i do this

    guitar > Tuner > wah > ns in > ns send > ts > amp in > amp send > ns return > ns out > chorus > delay > amp return

    i guess only difference is i gate my guitar before OD if i do it after the amps too overdriven for ns to cut anything :lol:

    What pedal power supply should I go with? I looked more into the gator and learned that it doesn't have isolated jacks. I've had ground loop problems with my pedals before and idk if they should be isolated. My rig doesn't buzz now and I use a daisy chain 1 spot but it might once I introduce the decimator and dd-5.

    you want your gate in front of your overdrive if you're going for tight percussive attack. Putting it after forces the gate to work against the raised levels of the OD making you set the gate higher and risking less sustain and limited attack. Having used both of those gates in the past, I would think the NS-2 would be better in front and ISP would be better behind the pre. Otherwise both of the previous signal chains look good.

    One thing that sucks dude is that some pedals are just noisy with a power supply period. If you loop your pedals through your ns-2 then it should wipe it out. I run this on my board:

    Amp > MXR EVH Flanger > MXR Black Label Chorus > MXR ZW-OD > Dunlop Zakk Wylde Wah. (yeah, im a Zakk fan lol) and run my NS-2 through the effects loop all by itself into my 5150 and even by powering my entire pedal board with a Dunlop Powerbrick (mainly for the 18v adapters) i get zero noise from the pedals or my amp. If i didnt use the NS-2 in the 5150's loop then i would get all the electric buzz you hear from having pedals running through adapters.
