Media - pedalboard
Why yes, it IS more guitar pedal-related stuff! Though technically not an actual pedal this time. Keen to see the difference it makes in sound.

Today's deliveries are a flanger pedal for my guitar setup (can I call it a "rig" yet?), and a replacement airbrush needle! I was all excited to get my Kill Team terrain started last week, and I realised that my troubles with the airbrush clogging and spitting and just generally misbehaving were caused by the very tip of the needle being bent. 😞 I'm not sure exactly how I managed to do that, but I'm going to make a point to be a lot more gentle with it from now on.

The setup is complete! ...at least until my new guitar arrives, and also until I inevitably decide I want more guitar pedals and thus need to build a longer pedalboard. 😅 Man, that delay pedal is such fun. If you set one single repeat and set the delay before the repeat occurs to the right timing, you can get it to essentially play notes in between what you're playing, so it sounds like you're playing more. Or you can set a really long delay with lots of repeats and lower the intensity, and it sounds like you're in a vast hall. Or you can go in between those and just get a much fatter-sounding tone.

Huzzah, the relay interface finally arrived! Next step, figuring out how best to configure the MIDI controller to activate the interface in terms of ease of usage...

Yessss, got the Bridge4 configured to control Logic Pro now! So I can start and stop recording, play and pause the existing audio, and switch between and trigger live loops scenes all right from the pedalboard without needing to take my hands off the guitar. 😎

So it turns out you can control the Boss RC-5 looper pedal via MIDI instead of needing to lean down awkwardly to adjust the built-in drum machine, so I bought an (Australian-designed) MIDI controller, the Pirate MIDI Bridge4! It's pretty slick, but unfortunately Boss' documentation on how specifically to configure external MIDI devices to control it is a little lacking, so there's a LOT of trial and error going on right now.

That was a HELLA productive day off, look at my pedalboard! Everything is so neat and tidy, I'm fucking STOKED at how well it came together.
