i knew the mic on the camera was going to be a problem.
i think i'll just scrap the video idea and record to the pc for better control.

let's look at the facts. he doesn't start using the MuIII until about the 1st incarnation of the Effects Loop. He is definately messing with different effects in 76, but i don't hear the MuIII up or down until New Years Eve 76 at The Cow Palace. That is also the first Travis Bean 500 with the effects loop minus switch. With this form of OBEL minus the switch, the Mutron(one of them) effect-off state would be the buffer/preamp that drives that entire signal with nothing engaged. The gain control would be operational. in the 90's rack we see the footswitch is moved to the top in the form of a toggle switch and labeled IN/OUT. IMO, he used it. He definately knew it's effect. Once the switch was added to the OBEL in wolf, the buffer(stratoblaster) was added to even out the Buffered OBEL bypassed state(one of the mutrons) and the NON buffered, effect-less, clean guitar state. then the Cutler switcher was added to allow the effects to be true bypassed in and out.
the reason the MU3 is true bypassed is because i went to a NON effects switcher setup, and true bypassed all my pedals in the loop.
