    Jonny Five is alive.

    Finally got the audio wiring completed. And by god, its gonna be one hell of a tone tool.

    And anyone using solderless cables of any brand, Planet Waves, George Ls, et al... get yourself a cable tester, like the Behringer Cable Tester (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Behringer-6-In-1-CT100-Cable-Tester/dp/B000CCIVCA) as it will mean you don't have to troubleshoot every cable when you want to run it for the first time.

    Next thing to do, update the firmware and program the thing for the first time.

    Tonight i finished upgrading my ultra compact/portable (main) all in one pedalboard rig.
    Imho its a god tier/end game dream rig! (Obviously its not for everyone)
    When its time to play all i have to do is plug the speaker cable from the cab(s) into back of the quilter. Then plug in the 10 foot power cord the the tripplite at the left side and everything powers on ready to go.
    This excells at death metal like no other rig ive ever owned. This coming from someone who owns(ed) the Ampeg vh140/ss150, Peavey 6505/vtm120/rock master rack preamp/jsx/bandit, Mesa dual rec, Marshall jcm800/valvestate and more.
    *Specs*
    FRONT:
    -ALL evidence monorail cables! (newly installed!)
    -NEWLY modded (by James Brown) Amptweaker Tight Metal Pro.
    added resonance & presence knobs & an internal mini switch that lets me use the (boost gain) knob separately at all times which essentially acts as a tubescreamer boosting the front end.
    I can still hit the boost foot switch to engage the boost loop/boost volume knob when it comes time to solo.
    Essentially these mods make it so i dont need to run an EQ after it or a tubescreamer to boost before it.
    Just perfection all built in!
    -Quilter ToneBlock201 400watt amp (only allows you to use 200w for 100% headroom) dual spealer out and direct put! super versatile tone sculpting!
    -tiny flat pouch velcroed to top of quilter for picks/batteries/earplugs.
    -line6 G30 wireless. (dont mind the tramsmitter just sitting there)
    -jamman soloXT is not part of the signal chain and is used for samples etc straight to sound person from its output.
    -ISP decimator gate -TC T(trinty) 2 reverb. -TC polytune2 noir tuner.
    BACK/BOTTOM:
    -Cioks DC10 pedal power supply.
    -TrippLite AV2fp low profile high powered surge protector.
    I apologize for all of this but im just superly excited and stoked its finally done! I love my rig SO much! And highly recommend any and everything on my board!

    I reworked my rig into a more giggable state - it's great and today it sounded better than ever before. I was on the fence with my JBM but now I'm not anymore!

    It's now a 4U Rackcase. In the back theres 2 x 140mm Corsair LED Fans on each Side, in the middle I have an old Dell power supply to power them. it has built in power distribution from one incoming power cord to 3 connections.The switch turns on the power supply and the cooling for the passive power amp since it can get toasty at louder volumes. (I run it in bridged mode with about 70% volume).

    A Line 6 Pod xt Pro into a Behringer A500 power amp into a Bugera 4x12 with V30s.... sounds absolutely killer! I've never been happier with my rig. On the floor I have a Wah (don't use that), a Boss tuner pedal and a channel switcher for the pod.

    Loving the classic Pod XT Pro setup.

    What kind of tones are you going for with that?.

    If it were me I would be doing Fellsilent/Monuments/Tesseract/Vildhjarta style stuff haha

    also, back then, did they make the pod have trails when patch switching?. I hate when clean/solo delay just cuts off suddenly when you hit rhythm etc.

    thank you for the kind words!

    I'm going for a simple 5153 + OD for rhythm and the same for lead with some reverb and delay.

    to be honest, I haven't looked for that but I think it just cuts off all remaining sound when you switch to a different preset - but for me that's not an issue.

    other than that the tones are very usable and versatile, the best thing is that it's extremely reliable.

    I like how the panorama feature on my phone makes my room look way bigger.

    There's something fishy about that picture, something odd and out of place... it's mirrored!... then I understand you're a lefty...

    Jut kidding, nice stuff you got there, lots of stuff to play with.
