Would someone maybe be so nice to create a wireframe diagram of a common set-up kurt uses on his pedal board (powerpoint would be easy to do this in, just some type of visual rep of the architecture). I know Kurt's pedal set-up changes a lot but maybe just the basics. I spoke with Kurt at Small's, I think he said that with the Strymon pedals he's able to skip the Xotic/Xblender pedals so maybe those could be left out of the diagram... I don't understand the logic of what should come first, last, in the middle, separate loop here and here, etc and why. but if I could see a visual representation then I would have a launch point.
I guess variable could include: Guitar, Tuner, EQ (Empress), Delay, Switches, Hog synths, compression pedal, RAT, Delay, Tremolo, Reverb, expression pedal(s), pedal power, Echo (strymon).
Much appreciation, and hope that something like this would help others as well understand how to get similar sounds, the underlying architecture, logic, etc.
PS - May the Alpine Slide rest in peace Kurt! It's a small world:)
