I tried the net, but nothing I found satisfied my needs
After years and years of running my rack gear in a simple way (in - out - in out - in out), I think now is the time to hook it up the proper way.
can you guys help me ?
Marshall 8008 Power amp
Compressor/Gate DBX 266
Alesis Quadraverb and POD XT (kidney) for FX
Boss Super Overdrive (for leads)
Morley Bad Horsie (wah)
All controlled by a Art X11 midi footswitch (except the wah)
I used to plug it this way: GTR > overdrive > wah > Preamp > Compressor/gate > FX > power amp, but I know the right way should be using the fx loop from the triaxis.
I have a few questions about hooking up and maybe you guys could help me out
1) My gate/compressor have 2 channels, I was thinking of using one channel for clean sounds and the other for dirty sounds - up to now I used only one channel, but since I use lots of gain on my main distorted sound, I set up the gate real tight, so when I switch to a clean sound it cuts off the hell out of the sound. So I'd like to use each channel in a different preset and call it through the midi pedalboard
2) Drive pedal - I like to call it via midi pedal board (I use an ac adapter so it can be "on" all the time) - so when i hit the solo preset it calls the drive also
3) FX - I usually let the POD XT for studying and rehearsals, that's why I have a quadraverb unit in the rig, but since the display is not working properly I'm really thinking of getting rid of it and only use the POD.
Maybe a little confusing - maybe I should call for mark snyder :-D
here's a pic - use your paintbrush skills to hook it up :-D
