Will a good buffer only pedal screw up a filter?

Been considering putting a Wampler Buffer in front of my chain, anyone think this will effect the dynamic response or touch of my envelope filter I have front of chain? Wampler Buffer is just in/out, no controls, no gain, unity level. Any think it will actually help the signal stability into the unit?

If it doesn't change the dynamics (no compression) it shouldn't change the function of the envelope generator.

Sweet, that is what I was thinking. Should actually improve the tracking response dynamic by it stepping down the impedance. I am leaning towards the straight always on no knob Wampler or the Boost&Buff by MI Audio that has a switchable boost when you are not trying to use the filter. The MI Audio sounds like a great pedal that can run on as high as 24v.

I am just digging my new Q Tron Plus, getting this wicked cool Superstitious Mutron tone and some wacked old Trower tones, what a fun pedal to mess with.
