    I saw this head listed in the great pre-amp shoot-out and started wondering. Can this actually be done? How? Why would you do it? Thanks in advance. :)
  2. Tap into the send of the effects loop.

    Or set the XLR DI direct/line switch to line and
    adjust gain pad to balance to active master volume
    and the input signal to your power amp.

    (Master Volume comes to play when entire preamp &
    EQ is used via DI line.) Which is a good thing
    because the Blue's Master Volume can be used rather then the power amps.
