GSP1101 help

I just bought a GSP1101, and it has worked fine until I went to the rehearsal to plug it into an amp. I can't get any sound using the "send" output that says to put it into amp input, which is exactly what I did.

Could that be because of some setting that I haven't found, or is the output simply broken? The only way I was able to get SOME sound of it was to go into the preset settings and then "loop control", where I found a send output volume control. It was by default set to 99, but I went in and set it to 98 and then 99 again, and I got sound but all the effects weren't there. When I re-saved the preset and then went to another and back, the sound was completely gone again though....

Does anyone know what the problem might be?

I can use the mono line output to the amp return and get working sound, but ofcourse I want to know if my send output is faulty or not, and the sound I get is probably not the same as if I would use send to amp input?

Answers would be truly appreciated!

Re: GSP1101 help

Make sure you are not confusing things. Most FX units will have that send output, but that is to be used with the 4 cable method so that you can put effects both before and after the pre-amp. In the case of the GSP1101 you want to go guitar -> GSP1101 Input -> GSP1101 Send -> Amp Input -> Amp Send -> GSP1101 Return -> GSP1101 Output -> Amp Return. This will allow you the most flexibility when setting up the effects. If you simply want to plug the unit directly before the amp, then you just use the Line Ouput into the Input of the amp.

All that said, I'm not sure if using the send only into the input of the amp is supposed to work. It might be a case of the unit muting everything when the return is not plugged in. I would try simply using the Line Ouput first and seeing if that works. If it does, then you can try the 4-Cable method and see how it goes.

I have a gsp1101 and Like Viper says, the send output is for using the gsp in your amp's effects loop or for a preamp loop using the 4 cable method. If you are going to go from the gsp into the front of the amp then you need to use the line output. Using the send only into the input of an amp will not work as far as I know.
