I read in the DI's manual that the Tech21 product should come before anything else except tuner since it doesn't do anything to the signal.
I also read on this forum somewhere that it doesn't really matter...so which advice should I take?
That's not what it says.
From the Manual;
"PLACEMENT ORDER OF OTHER EFFECTS
One of the key attributes of any SansAmp is its responsiveness to the dynamics and nuances of your playing
technique. In most cases, your bass should be plugged directly into the SansAmp.We suggest experimenting
to find the order that’s best for you.
As a general guide, we recommend:
Place the following effects BEFORE SansAmp PBDR: Wah-Wah, Pre-Amp, Compressor, Fuzz Box, Envelope Follower.
Place the following effects AFTER SansAmp PBDR: Chorus, Delay, EQ, Pitch Shifter, Reverb.
NOTE: Low quality digital effects placed after SansAmp PBDR may compromise your signal and degrade the sound." http://www.tech21nyc.com/support/man...er-Prog-OM.pdf
