That sounds really nice. Both tones sound really nice. Thanks for posting this.

This tone (the q>TS) reminds me of a mid-80's Space, into The Other One or even Watchtower...well done, it immediately sounded familiar...

What is that DIY silver pedal immediately after the Q and the TS before it goes into the rest of your pedals???? Sweet sound by the way.
hawk.

I think its a FX loop/buffer
That's the Waldo TPC-1 pedal - its got a clone of the preamp that Jerry had 'inside' his guitars, and an effects loop. I run the effects loop out into the Qtron>TS9, then back into the loop and onward. The knob controls the output volume of the loop and is big enough to manipulate with my foot while I'm playing...

Very cool. I have a Mutron but I have to echo the poster that mentioned that he doesn't like how his Q/Mu interacts with his other pedals.

That one is worth trying. It's a tone that I feel like I would swear I have heard many times in Space...

You have a nice guitar there. Have you already shared the guitar's info with us somewhere else, and if not, would you be so kind as to tell us about it? Like what pups you're using?

My geetar is a Conn C-series CSE-2 stratocaster. It's neck(maple-laminate)-thru-body(mahogany) with brass saddles/brass nut; maple fretboard. I'm running two Dimarzio super-2 pups in the bridge/middle positions - both are coil-split, the neck pup is a dimarzio sds-1. Electronics are otherwise just like a strat.

The best aspect of the guitar is the neck shape... It's definitely reminiscent of a strat, but "flatter" in parts and "rounder" in others... Hard to explain really, ya just have to feel it.
