I apologize if you've covered this already, but I've searched the forum pretty extensively and didn't see it covered in a previous thread. So here is my question... I run a fairly extensive pedal board (signal chain: pog - tremelo - OD's - fuzz's - dist. - delay - mangler - delay - reverb ) I currently have all the fx running to both my amp & clean DI (radial), but I don't care for how my dist./od's/fuzzes sound coming through the DI. I'm assuming that my ideal signal path would be to run my od/fuzz/dist's thru my amp/cab only and let the pog / tremelo / reverb / delay / mangler run thru BOTH the DI & amp/cab? Thus having 2 channels going into the house total. If there is a better way to split the signal please advise. Most of the venues I'm playing are in the 500-1000 cap. range, and most sound guys still whine if I ask them to mic & run a DI on my rig (why do they hate mic'ing bass so much anyway?). Is mic'ing my cab the only way I can run everything through one channel without compromising the tone of my OD's / distortion / fuzzes? I'm just wanting to achieve the best tone possible while creating as little extra work for the soundman as possible.
