Just a quick follow-up…
I checked out the API at AES and it is simply too huge and heavy for my purposes, so I didn’t even try it. I’d heard good things about the Keeley Clean Boost from guitarist friends and in researching it online came across the Keeley Tone Workstation which is three pedals in one and includes the clean boost, a compressor, and a distortion. (You can turn the clean boost off and have two different distortions instead.) I tried it on a gig last Thursday for the first time and I’m quite pleased with how it sounded. I still want to play around with different distortion settings, but using the clean boost/compressor combo worked out very nicely. I’ve posted a video clip on my facebook page.
