    I haven't used the egnater at all, I use a syn1 in the loop of my MI Beta. I sent the rm100 off to jaded faith to have it repaired and have them retrofit it so I can run the synergy stuff with it.

    Who is using these into an amp's FX loop?

    I'm tinkering with a two channel amp where each channel has its own loop. One of the channels I never use, so I could plug something directly into its loop return and use an A/B box to switch between that and the other amp channel.

    The rack format isn't ideal, but a few of these modules could be fun for this set up.

    I use mine into MI Beta's fx loop. works great. Not every loop plays nice with the syn stuff though.

    Which modules do you have? I'd probably end up with the 800 for sure. Not sure of the others.

    VH4, Pittbull, SLO. Waiting on my Deliverance module to finish being repaired. Had a dirty shirley module but I hated it.

    Deliverance would be one that I'm interested in too. Love the D120.

    I think it'd be cool if Synergy came out with a Tone Bender fuzz module.

    Eh, it would be a bit odd to make fuzz pedal module wouldn’t it?

    I think it'd be pretty cool to see stuff like fuzz module preamps maybe similar to the Hilbish module. Then again, I've been longing for a fuzz for a long time now : )

    I love my synergy setup. I have a bunch of synergy modules, but for this track, I used a Salvation Audio Sathanas (inspired from Fortin) going into syn2> a Diamond Nitrox for power:

    I'm not sure if there's enough room in there, no one seems to be modding the syn stuff. I have a couple of syn stockers that are good but I would totally sacrifice for Salvo magic.

    Forgot to post this back when I made them, so here's the SLO and Pittbull demos I posted earlier, but in yt form. I had to delete them from my soundcloud so I had room for other shit

    Those sound great. One of the few times I've ever heard IR's on an iso'd guitar mix and didn't think about it. Sounds like a real mic'd cab. Synergy is so tempting.

    Sounds great. I think I'm leaning towwards the blue channel more actually.
