different appraoaches ?
Eliminate all but the 1rst box input and last box output[s...jacks.
This creates a handful of patch cables you also won't need for the pedalboard.
Often seen as a waste to the 1per-box pedal circuit boxes, they are used to help determine pedal chain order and circuit content...
Something I would consider...down the line...built a couple and..
And frees up lots of PB space, but never was match for the 1-per-box chains: 1 patch 2 patch 3..etc..method.
Excellent result seems intractably related to how much ''polish and preponderance'' or ''bums rush vibe'' one has devoted to a project, my individual boxes recieved more polish and tweeking via testboards, the all-in-one was never afforded the attention, nor was the power supply ever peeled sufficiently.
After taking an "overkill kills all possibility of a ground loop conection" approach [ie Spyder at GEO], all my PS grounds were lifted, the regulated/filtered ripple free DC very much like that of a battery.
All the circuits have BFC to filter at the end of the supply line, at the board. Right next to the chip if it's a spikey-current-drawing thing, possibly an R added to before the cap, 100ohm or so.
Otherwise, the Spyder power supply does a fine PS-onion peeling job.
I still use the ''extra'' patch cables and 1-circuit-per-box effects.
I haven't seen need to resort to input grounding when in bypass.
>Overkill again? input to high gain circuits...recent builds get the grounded-shield input wire treatment [..only because I have easy-prepare shield wire here], allowing circuit output, box output and switch located near each other [short travels from output, Example: output volume pot>Switch>output jack].
V+ wire on especially consumptive chip also gets the "short-wire-is-away from input, and crosses sensative wires only when there's no other way" treatment...doesn't run parallel to wire = inductor.
V+ of course is the highest potential, often closely followed by output [which one is 'spikey-er'?]...keep these away from what is by comparison [when adding gain]sensative input wires.
