Presets your EFX boxes are (almost) glued on

Seeing a few of these individual threads pop up....I wanted to start a consolidated one.
I just went on an external efx box binge now that I got enough digi I/O to handle it all. Of the heavier duty boxes, I got a Orville and a R880.....The orville is making my head spin and I would LOVE some good starting points, but it already makes life so much easier.....

So what outboard efx boxes are you using, what are you using them on and what presets/algorithms are you using MOSTLY (this simply means more often than not and that OF course it's a given that you have to EDIT presets).

There are a couple for me:
M5000 - gold plate, primary reverb
PCM81 - Quad Hall, highly edited ballad vocals

I've been using my SPX 900 set in simple delay to per-delay my Plate. I use "3 of me" on the H3000 a lot. Tap delay and few of the reverbs on the M3000. The mangler is almost always in the flanger bank. But nothing just stays on one preset.

I have a little Sony reverb that pretty much stays on a medium room called "NYC Loft"

I have often wondered if I just like it for the name. Would I like it as much if it were called "medium room #6"?

3 engines of the Lex 960L - they don't travel far from B1P2 Medium Hall, B6P6 Large Wood Room and B7P8 Vocal Plate. Eventide for B3P24 Stereo Chorus. PCM90 likes Blue xxx (forgot the exact name - big orchestral verb), PCM80 likes Drum Room.

I use the bog standard plate reverb in the MPX 1 all the time.

Also using a Lexicon Vortex for a lot of chorusing type stuff- but it doesn't really do the preset thing- but great for weird sounds.

Echo Pro is permanently set to the looper.

Lexicon MPX1G2 is on an aux for processing guitar sounds.

Digitech Quad- 16 bit device, but is really good as the architecture is quite freeform, allowing multiple modules of the same effect- ie 2x reverbs (unlike Lexicon)

Rocktron Intellifex- used for delays- another 16 bitter, but nice.

I change presets quite a bit but I return to some every once in a while:

Midiverb4: allways on woodroom (if I ever use that thing)
PCM70: mostly on medium room


I fear that's it - sorry
everything else gets tweaked too much

Or even "Canfield, Ohio loft" ?
