Where to put the multi-fx?
Posted 12 February 2012 - 12:18 PM
i.e. option one
Guitar - Amp Input - FX loop SEND - POD - FX Loop RETURN
Guitar - POD - Amp Input
Any advice or thoughts please?

If the POD has amp simulation on you really don't want to have that in the loop.
The typical effects chain will have gain based effects in the front then into modulation, delay and then reverb.
You may be better off just trying the amps 'dry' before working out how to use the POD with it. If you really want to use the POD take the guitar into it, then go from the POD to the FX return. This will bypass the pre amp section and take you straight to the power amp section and probably sound better.
All the best with it

I didn't even realise you could just go straight into the power section like that, glad I asked now. The POD is filled with amp and cab simulations, I tend not to use the chorus, delay and flanger effects that much tbh
Just packing up my gear and heading off to the shops now. Will try the amps as they come then see if I can play around with my POD presets after.
