Geoff Stanfield, Online Publisher for Tape Op Magazine has put together this video on using stompboxes to get creative with effects during your mixing process. He uses the Meris 440 Mic Pre to integrate the stompboxes with Pro Tools and as well as showing you how to achieve this, gives handy tips and demonstrations on the matter.

I like the x-factor of using relatively inexpensive pedals to bring something different to a mix than I might otherwise get with a plug-in.
