i've a university student and i've got to create a patch for one of my units.
I've hit a problem, when u open the effect in Ableton Live, an annoying sound plays when opened and there's no input. But after a while it settles and disappears. And then u can use this patch with no problem at all and get a good sound.
I'm building this using max for live and it starts in this order
compressor, distortion (bypassable), EQ, flanger, chorus, modulating delay (bypassable), tape delay (bypassable), reverb and live.gain
