    right, i just bought a digital effects unit.

    i presumed i should wire it in parallel - i did so, but even when the parellel pot on my amp is set to 100% wet I still get 50/50 clean and processed signal.

    is this what should happen?
    i though 100% wet would mean 100% processed signal into the power amp.

    when i run it in series and set to 100% wet I get 100% processed signal, but the volume is lower, on the same settings - presumabley because the entire signal is travelling through the effects unit(?)

    as it happens both sound great - the 50/50 clean/processed signal sounds fat as hell - a nice processed effect, but with the fatness of a clean bass tone to back it up. but ideally i'd like to be able to dial in 100% wet, so the in series sounds like a better option as i can achieve both effects.

    can someone confirm the difference between series and parallel- and which would be the standard to use for an effects processer?

    i think i know it, but I'm not 100% sure after trying this out!?!
