Hello all!!! Two quick questions... Well, after a set-up...

I have an eight year old OTS50 FM ME. I got it built and added the tubes and transformers, built the cab (two slots: Power Conditioner and C-Lator), and it is fed by a midi switcher, a few pedals, and is used for Country, Rock, and modern Praise & Worship. Amazing tones on the clean, but the OD is just not as creamy as I'd like. I know, it's got the ME mod to make it a tad more aggressive, but it is TOO aggressive at this point. I run the trim at 9:00, the Ratio at 9:30, and the Level high enough to balance with the clean. I keep the MV at about 4, and Volume at 5-8 depending on the vibe of the day. Use the C-Lator as the effective volume. Every setting imaginable has been tried. There just isn't creamy in there. More ratio/less level makes it muddier but also far grittier and harsh. I try various volume and tone settings on either a LP and a Tele, and it never gets CREAMY. Not horrible tone, but just too hyper aggressive.

So, the questions:

1. Any luck with switching to an AU7 or AY7 to make a creamier OD, or some other suggestion?

2. Adding to the issue noted above that I rely on midi in many venues, and I find that I don't use the OD channel much at all anymore. I know that my GCX switcher will switch the OD/PAB with the right tail. Anybody making these tails? If so, where can I pick one up? With me living in a condo now, I don't have the ability to work on things like I used to... 

With the switcher, I need to split the connector 5-P connector to two 1/4" male TS with about 3' of length.

Many thanks in advance!!!
