    Toying around with the built in drives in the MS-3 to see how they do running into the clean channel of my Budda. Had to use the parametric eq on all the dirt patches, but I think the results are at least usable. Obviously, these patches aren’t as responsive or nuanced as either the Budda’s or the Shiva’s overdrive channels, so my main setup will remain 4cm using the amps’ channels and effects loops, but in a pinch I think this lil’ pedal would work fine into a back line.

    sounds good! I like how you're riding the volume knob to show how responsive the drives are.

    Thanks — that volume knob trick is one of the most important tests, for me, whether it’s an amp or a pedal. :thumb:
