I use the Q-tron and Multiplexer together for bass synth sounds, often with the pollinator fuzz. I also sometimes use it for leads. It works well after the pollinator, as I can use my volume knob to clean up the fuzz a bit, dialing in just the right amount of envelope swell.

I also have a Q-balls:Riddle, which has some additional features, particularly attack and decay control. It is much smoother sounding, but is larger, so I keep that on my bigger studio board. It can also get some speaker blowing lows when dialed too aggressively.
