Line drivers, Tc electronics nova system...

I had a question about running a line driver with my TC electronic nova system. My set up is as follows:
-RG760
-15' planet waves cable to Peavery JSX
-effects send to nova system line input(15' planet waves cable)
-Nova system left out back to JSX fx return(15' planet waves cable)
-Nova system right out to 5150 fx return, slaved(15' planet waves cable)

Thats allot of cable and was wondering if running a line driver before I go into the front of my JSX will help out the signal cause of the 45' of cable. My sound as it is I'm happy with but always looking to improvements. Anyone have any experience or knowledge when it comes to this sort of stuff?
Thanks so much
Rick

Re: Line drivers, Tc electronics nova system...

don't think you really need it, but if used, i would put it in the effects loop, send side, not your main input...but, I would though , try it in front of your amp too, the extra gain might juice up your preamp tubes a little more...but overall, don't think you need it.

i use the Nova and run it through the loop - not the input. A standard 'rule-of-thumb' is to run all your time-based effects through the loop -that would be chorus, delay, flange...and run your gain, distortion and compression through the input. You'll get excellent results.

Re: Line drivers, Tc electronics nova system...

Thanks for the replies. I'm familiar with where effects should go(thanks) and I know line drivers should go as early in the signal chain as possible. I just wanted to know if running a line driver and the nova system togeather would work or not. Sometimes certain things dont work well with others. Like for example running a wah after the line driver does not work well cause of the input buffer in the wah. The Nova system also has an input buffer. This is why I ask.
Thanks
