Whenever I find a good setting I like, I usually have to draw a diagram of the pedal or the knobs and mark it, and its time consuming and I'm a terrible artist, and it especially sucks on big pedals with alot of knobs and sliders. I've seen some blank templates scattered about on various sites and forums, so to make things easier on the gearheads who's pedal collective is vital to their tone, lets post them all in one spot. Post templates that you made, or if you didn't make it then give credit to whoever did. And if you want you can post some of your own settings.
Another thought - I've found a quicker way, after my daughter decided to play with all the knobs/sliders in my rack one day - digital photos.
I take photos with my iPhone (any digital will do) close up and voila! instant pedal settings saved. This is one I just took, resized and cut down the quality by 5x to make it a quicker file load, but you can still see the settings on the Direct Drive and the Timmy.

Yeah, thats a good idea. I take pictures of my settings with my phone, but the quality sucks. I think I might resist the temptation of getting an expensive pedal with my tax money and get a good digital camera instead.
What a great idea - I know this is an older thread but it is a great idea. I was looking at the Chandler site today at their mic preamps and they have recall sheets available - that's basically what this is. Check it out: Chandler Limited | Recalls -
Of course, one pedal's settings in the grand scheme of things is often not enough - we need bigger recall sheets to include type of guitar, type of amp, room info, etc. I firmly believe that each amp/guitar sounds radically different in each room so, the more I write this response, the more I talk myself out of using these lol.
