Audio Buffer Talk....

so, throughout the years I've heard all the talk about, if you run heaps of pedals, long cables etc, you loose your actual tonal value from the amp, also the possibility of getting some noise.

There's afew pedals that apparently fix this situation... Axess BS-2, MI Audio Boost'n'Buff and more....

I've never gotten myself one, to actually test it for myself...
what do you all think?...

I was interested at the MI Audio one, because when on, it acts as a boost function, and at the moment I was actually looking at a boost pedal.... *suggest some..*

what do you guys suggest?... are these worth it?.. I've been on harmony central and most the reviews on the Axess state it a 10/10.....

would like to hear your suggestions...

Cheers

Re: Audio Buffer Talk....

I use an Axess BS-2 when I'm using my wireless to drive the signal out to by pedal board from my rack. It also helped isolate something (never figured out what) that was causing some hum in my rack. Great device and you do notice the difference. Despite the "true bypass is the only way" bandwagon, buffers are often good things!

Re: Audio Buffer Talk....

I seem to get quite a not bad signal, It does tend to loose just a little as compared to just being straight into the amp... but I've found when my Keeley Comp is on, it gets a little noisy, but I just thought this was to do with compressors? Maybe I'll have to test a BS-2 out, to see maybe it would fix the problem? Who sells them online?

Re: Audio Buffer Talk....

It won't fix that sort of noise, but you buy them direct from Axess.

Re: Audio Buffer Talk....

Not that I'm aware of, and that shipping does seem silly!
