I current run the following but would like to ask others if there is a better way, or if I could cause any harm with the following set-up.
From the guitar I have the following set-up to the amp
- Digitech RP250: multi-effects with the pedal's output set to AMP (not mixer)
- Boss RC-20 XL looper with the pedal going to the instrument input
- Fender Frontman Series II 25R
That's pretty normal, but I also runâ€¦
From an Alesis SR18 drum machine (Main output) to the Mic input of the Boss RC-20 XL (above) using this to either as a mixer or to catch the drums and rhythm at the same time to practice over (jazz lead sheets for example).
Is there a â€œbetterâ€ way? Am doing something wrong? I ask because I had a smaller practice amp die (circuit issue) and wanted to make sure it wasn't something I did.
Also, in this set-up does it matter if I run the multi-effect with an Amp output or a mixer output?
I could always run the set-up like: Guitar -> pedal -> looper -> drum machine -> amp. In this case would it be better to run from the looper to the Aux input or the instrument input? I could even throw a mixer in the set-upâ€¦I don't just to keep the number of knobs to a minimum. I already have a half dozen different volume settings to play with.
I know that's a lot of questionsâ€¦ sorry
