A man has to keep himself busy. I set my mind to a digital thingy that stores my effect settings. The current effect processors seem to "suck" in a way.
So, I'm thinking of an ADA-MP1. It has tube circuitry and is capabal of stocking my setups.
I'm not thinking of buying it, I planning on building one. I'll probably take time but I'm not in a rush.
The main concern now is really understanding how it works , what "module" does what (it has several PCB's) and are there PCB layouts out there ?
Anything at all , hints, reviews concerning the ADA is welcome.

If you have the ability to do that you might as well just design & build your own. Start with a better sounding preamp circuit and then add digital control to it. The MP-1 had many shortcommings imo.
The EQ section could have been designed better, the available boost & cut steps were too radical tgo allow fine tuning. I sold the one I had after exhausting myself trying to get a good sound from it.

the digital part is the problem ...
THe schematics I have aren't too clear and I need more info...
I might mod the ADA circuitry ...

I used to have one of these preamps. really good for nailing that shredder tone.I recorded my first Instrumental project with it, and I sold it because I was desperatly short of cash. Of course I have since built my own high gain tube amp, I think the preamp would still be useful in a few situations.
