Blog post about how I use the Duo :)

Just wrote a thing on my blog about some of the ways I use the Duo - it’s aimed at non-Duo owners, so may come across as a little basic here, but some of you may find it useful :slight_smile:

cool… way to put the DUO out there, steve!

i’m curious about the 83.9% CPU load shown in your screen-grab of your main pedalboard, along with the fact that you’ve got some beta plugins in there. do you see the issue of occasional single xruns which i discuss a bit here?:

…and are you running at 128 or 256 frames?

cheers, buddy!

hey! This configuration is pretty stable - I swap out the distortions for different pedals a lot (I’m an improvisor so don’t ever need to repeat the same sounds from gig to gig, and that’s a good way to mix things up) and there are some combinations that cause xruns, and I stopped using the Calf Multiband limiter for that reason (I LOVE that plugin so much and hope it gets stabilised at some point!) but with this one, it’s actually rather solid… Consistently high CPU, but I’ve tweaked it to maximise CPU usage… if it was any lower I’d just add more pedals :smiley:

Awesome blog post, @solobasssteve! Any chance you could upload that pedalboard?

sure - I thought I’d uploaded a version of it, but I just searched the pedalboards and couldn’t find it. Will add it ASAP :slight_smile:

…in the meantime, is that running at 128 or 256 frames? :slight_smile:

128 - I couldn’t deal with the latency at 256

…and I tried to upload the pedalboard the other day, but it failed for some reason. Will try again now :slight_smile:
