Re: Using pedals with a rack unit - getting confused
Time based effects(chorus,flange,delay etc) MUST be post amp,in the effects loop.
Thats your problaem,you are delaying your guitar and signal before it's gone through the pre-amp stage where you are generating your tone,every delay repeat is also getting gain from running through the pre-amp.
Put it in the amps effect loop,then you will be adding a pure delayed effect to your finished tone.
The pedals you put in front would be drive pedals,wah etc....pedals that 'push' and or distort.
