Cool Distortion Pedal Placement


Just got a Boss DS-1

I have a T.C.Helicon Voice Live 3 X -

Should I place this before my VL3X or after ?

What does the T.C.Helicon Voice Live 3 X do? If it has modulation/delay effects I would put the distortion before it. I'd also try it after just to see how it sounds but I always prefer my OD/Distortion before modulation/delay effects.

Congrats on the DS-1. It's been used on tons of recordings.

Thanks for the feed back man :

The VL3X is a monster voice and guitar FX/looper . The Cadillac of loopers so's to speak .
It's got loads of T.C. Electronics stuff like the Hall Of Fame reverb and a whole lot of
other guitar FX . It's vocal FX can really get wild and can also access the guitar FX too .



I'll try the DS-1 both ways .

Happy New Year man

You'd always want to put any FX before a looper, so that the FX are recorded on the loop, and if you add/remove FX for another loop, the output form the looper doesn't change.

Does that model listen and harmonize any vocals based on the guitar chords in use? A distortion pedal before it may possibly confuse it the same way it confuses my TU-3 pedal at times if I leave my fuzz on. Just something to check on when you try it out.

Yes it can have that option to harmonize the vocal off the chord played with guitar or keyboard through the Aux In .
