Question: Hey Justin, I'm enjoying your Super 8 jams and tutorials you've been posting lately, especially the guitar tone. What fx you are using on your guitar, are they plugins or are you using pedals etc?

    Thanks! I use different setups depending on where I am, but for the minimalist super8 setup that ends up in the videos, the guitar signal path is:
    1. Guitar (Fernandes Monterrey, usually) connected to R24's hi-z input
    2. (toggleable) JSFX distortion (fuzz) - shape: 32, hard limit -25dB, wet -9dB dry -60dB
    3. JSFX amp model (or ReaVerb) with the "Fender Deluxe - Tweed Champ.wav" cab model
    4. (toggleable) ReaDelay with one tap, wet set to -2.5dB, length is 147ms feedback -4.4dB
    I don't love the sound of the guitar with the delay and distortion off, it's a bit too plucky, but you can make it all work...

    (at home I have a pedalboard with strymon sunset / micropog / nano big muff pi / the wave / strymon iridium. and some amps at the studio and a friend's awesome pedalboard is often there)
