Re: Carvin Legacy combo settings
Usually you want to run wah and distortion through the front of the amp and any time based effects (delay, phase, chorus, etc.) through the loop.
That is if you want to use the amps 'dirty' sounds with those effects. If you're ONLY using a pedal for distortion/lead and NEVER use the dirty channel on the amp, then you can run all of it in front. Usually running time effects through the front of the amp on it's dirty channel will give you odd sounds, and with delay you'll have a distorted primary, then progressivly cleaner repeats and that simply sounds un-natural.
But to each his own, really. Some people like the sound of a distorted chorus, as opposed to a chorused distortion so it's all to taste.
I don't own a Legacy but I love the tone Vai played through the demo for the Legacy, even taking into account the crappy mp3 compresson, so if you can find out what settings he used for that . . .
