    I'd get a better amp. You should not need all that OD stuff with a good amp, unless you just run a good pedal platform amp without overdrive. "That Pedal Show" did a video on different amps with different OD pedals to show how much they vary. (I looked for you but couldn't find it, I'll try later.) The pedal you love with your Marshall 800 may be terrible with your buddy's Fender or Vox. Personally I hate OD pedals, I want my amp's drive & power coming through. (Although fuzz pedals can be fun.) But no two are the same going through different amp's. If you get a chance try an Fractal FX-8, well worth a look if you like that many pedals. The Helix LT is pretty cool also, but the Fractal is just incredible.

    that's why I have three ODs. I switch Amps constantly. I'm thinking of replacing Chorus with Way Huge Fat Sandwich I have lying around. Only because it fits.

    I switch Amps. That's all I do. I don't play out. Got about 7 boutique heads with 4 quality Cabs.

    There are only two Mods. Chorus and Delay. (minus extra Chorus). Compressor.

    I've got tuner, noise suppressor, 3 snake oil boosts and an Amp sim. And BOSS Tremelo which doesn't sound very good IMO.

    Have you ever tried the FX-8? I have both that and a Helix LT, you can dial in pretty much any sound you want / need then save it for "that" amp. You can run the effects in either the front or back of the amp, and in your case make a screen for each amp you have. Then you can make up to 8 sub screens set up differently. They are pretty cheap when you think about how many top notch effects you get in this thing, and they can be tweaked like crazy to get JUST what you want.

    Not sure if you mean you require something with top mounted jacks, but perhaps a sweetass DOD Envelope Filter, currently on sale for a paltry $40 direct from DOD/Digitech/Harman/Samsung.
