    I'm on a similar boat. If I had a consistent touring rig, then yeah it'd be a lot cleaner, but since I'm swapping constantly I just can't commit to it.

    Oh, I can’t commit either. I’m sure I’ll get an itch for something in a month, and be tearing shit up again.

    Also, Pedaltrain sucks. Like, really, really sucks. Such a stupid fucking design with those massive gaps. Next board will definitely be a Rockboard or Voodoo (probably Rockboard).
    I looooooove my rockboard - so easy to lay stuff out on it.
    I have a Tres and it works very well for me.

    Your layout is so tidy - On mine I just push the wires underneath and pretend they are not there

    I still need to trace the power and label the power supply, so if a cable goes bad I can replace it easily.

    There is definitely something to be said to having stuff all over the floor If I had to gig I would probably be forced to figure out how the AX8 actually works. But I did recently get one of those pedal power things which is kind of moving in the right direction, and two Moog Pedals for volume and some other thing on the AX8.

    I love tidy boards and actually enjoy the process of wiring them up, zip tying and using those holders to keep everything in place.



    The zip ties loop through those holders and keeps the cabling all neat and secure.

    Mostly done:



    I just need labels and a snake. And then to start the arduous task of programming the switcher, H9, and DD-500. Might do a patch bay too, so I don't have those two cables going from Loop 3 across the board, to the amp in 4CM.

    A couple observations:

    1. Pedaltrains are shit. Seriously, what an overrated company, and the design is just stupid. It's why Temple, Warwick, and VoodooLab all have staggered holes instead of rails with big gaps.

    2. Warwick flat patches are awesome, and they need to make 12-18" straight to R/A, for people with switchers. that'd be awesome.

    3. Switchers make everything more difficult to wire cleanly.

    4. Always buy a MIDI-switchable delay and/or reverb. It'll allow you to gain one more loop back on a switcher, by being able to just turn the delay/reverb off via MIDI.

    There are some things I could have done better; the MIDI from the switcher to the H9 to the DD-500 is terribly messy, but the right angles are both a blessing and a curse, due to where the MIDI ports are, and I couldn't find the longer MIDI cables I needed.
