Making your own effects patches and using them in the mix

Hi John

I think I remember reading (from the Stone Roses days) that you would obsesively fiddle around with effects units (at home?) to create your own patches.

In my humble opinion one of the best things about that Stone Roses LP was the use of creative mixing to transform some of the songs.

So I wondered if you still have the same approach now that we are swamped with plugins of all kinds, and also if you still use a lot of outboard effects. And has your approach to the use of effects changed over the years?

Many thanks
