I'm looking to get a double bass pedal pretty soon. what are the benefits to using a strap-drive vs a chain-drive? I have no idea
23 albums deep solo project. mostly between black metal and indie pop

I don't have any experience with strap drives personally but I researched it a while back when I was shopping for new pedals and the difference seems pretty negligible. I would expect them to not be as durable as chains but they seem easy to replace and you don't have to deal with grease everytime you touch your pedals. Direct Drive is definitely the way to go though

Find a shop/friend/whatever where you can try out some pedals. Try some out. You'll be able to tell if it makes that much of a difference to you.
Veteris - blackened speed metal.
Glacier - atmospheric post-metal.

I don't like them much. Seems slightly sluggish to me.
A bunch of mp3s is not a collection of anything.
