I did a quick search and found a bunch of things that were sorta/kinda about my situation, but not really. Apologies in advance if I missed something. Currently, the only effects box that I use is my Sansamp BDDI that I run through the send/rec pre loop on my rig. I basically use it as a preamp, as it stays on to help shape my tone and never gets shut off while I'm playing (rig for reference is a Hartke HA4000 head and a SWR Triad cab) I'm looking into a simply multi-effect board such as the bass floor pod by line 6. not the crazy xt live one, since I don't have the cash or necessity for that. I noticed one of the main features of the floor pod is the amp emulation. Would this be doing the same thing as my BDDI? Would it replace it? or can I use both in combination? I like the sound I get from my BDDI and I'd like to keep using it, but I'm not sure if using the line 6 would interfere or be "too much" Also, what would be the best way to wire this? Should I run it bass-pod-amp? or put it in with the BDDI in the effect/pre loop send and receive in the back of the amp? Please help!
