Just wondered what conventions people are developing for filing away and recalling their own pedal boards, including bank naming, patch naming, grouping together in different ways?
Mine started out being by instrument (6 string bass, 4 string bass and fretless) but once I found my ‘core’ sound, those are all blended. Same with ‘standalone’ use and the patches in my rack… they’re both the same thing now, but started out with me duplicating everything and labelling it as such.
What I’ve started to do today is number them - it’s funny that, freed from the need to use patch numbers to save things for the first time in my life, I’ve reverted to patch numbers as my brain has now had almost 30 years of conditioning to remember patch numbers AND names, not one or the other I also list what the three buttons on my pedal board that I’ve assigned to plug-in/on-off are doing on each patch - ‘dist/trem/verb’ - and mention whether or not there’s a looper in there and how many - LPx2.
The numbering system at the moment is starts at 101 for ‘normal’ sounds, 201 for pad sounds and 301 for weird shit
Banks are currently a bit of a mess… not sure how best to order things in there…
How are you structuring yours?
