Anyone using the HX Effects and HX Stomp together?

Just wondering what it might be like to add an HX Stomp to a pedalboard that already has an HX Effects.

 

I've thought about it. It depends on the angle you look at it:

 

1. Audio: It will sound amazing.

 

2. Practical: You done *?!@#!ed up and should have bought an LT.

I do. Got the effects first, paired with a Fly Rig 5, and that was my rig for several months. Then got the Stomp as a Christmas gift. I like that I can have a mini-fly Rig if I needed something compact for whatever reason. Strymon Ojai R30 powers both perfectly (for almost 2 months now). Get the 2.1-2.5 cable from Amazon so you don’t have to buy any adapters. Also get the voodoo labs current doubler for each unit.

The FR5 is my backup.

That rig makes so much sense to me. You've got all the effects, cabs, etc you could almost ever want. You've got enough switches, you've got expression/volume/wah and the quality of the effects is excellent.

I use HX Effects with Helix in the effects loop. I also have settings with HX Stomp as a backup to Helix, but haven't had to use that live yet. HX Stomp standalone is also pretty useful with just some added MIDI control.

Went to a Metro24 board. Same power, just went to some slimmer EBS patch cables. I like the slimmer/in-line board. 
HX effects is in the FX Loop of the stomp (last in the path). I monitor with headphones (plus a HR 108) and need to use that FX block this way to be able to listen to everything through the headphone out on the stomp.

I am "one of the few" holdouts that have not purchased the Stomp yet...

 

Thanks for the ideas!!!
