No, Jerry did have an OD in front of his Mu3 but it was not for the purpose you have grown accustomed to with your comp in front. I believe you have developed a sense of what an envelope filter is "supposed" to sound and react like from what you have dialed in with you digital version
Interesting. I had deduced from the pedalrack locations that the overdrive/dist+ was after the MuTron in the chain. I thought I was satisfied with this set-up after experimenting in person too, but I haven't tried the other way in years. I did used to put a compressor in front of my Maxon AF-9 to increase its sustain/decay, it seems logical to me that Bobby would have done this too with his liberal compression usage. I guess Ill have to switch up the order and give a fresh listen.
