It seems to me that the amp/cab sims tend to work best when run into an full-range, flat response system, like a PA, whereas the pedalboard mode is intended for running into an amp. On the ME70 I use the amp sims at church (running direct to the board) but I use the pedalboard mode at home into my guitar amp.
Thanks again for responding, all.
I hope I can explain what I'm thinking I'd LIKE this mfx to do -
I was hoping to run the processor only as a pedalboard into the amp's effects loop for using my amp's dirty channels. This way I can put my head before the fx.
I was hoping to be able to use the Rp's modeling features on the same amp's clean channel, using the amp as a monitor only (hopefully)
So, I was thinking I could bypass any amp/cab modeling, and use the stompbox feature only when I had channel 2 (dirty) on the amp engaged.
And then, when I have channel one (clean) of my amp engaged, I could use the mfx's modeling capabilities.
My amp's footswitch allows me to use the two sep channels, and also, to engage / disengage the effects loop.
So, on my dirty channel, I would engage the effects loop of the amp, enable the stompbox mode and bypass any modeling of the fx unit.
On the clean channel, I would disengage the effects loop of the amp, and engage the modeling of the fx unit.
If this is a pipe dream, or it doesn't make logical sense to do, please let me know. Also, I can live with tweaking the fx unit to create some patches for my lackluster clean channel of the amp. If the rp 1k cannot do what I'm hoping it to do, then maybe I can just go with the rp 500 or the Boss ME 70, since essentially, I'll just be using the processor as an all in one stompbox, running through the fx loop of my gigging amp, but then using the same processor as a modeling unit for my practice amp
Lol, drummer just called, wants me to record something asap. I'll never have this thing settled in time.
One more thing - running the fx through the amp's loop for both channels is fine. I don't think fx should be used to cover up bad playing - although distortion and delay can make playing well seem a lil easier.
