so i'm making a portable rack/preamp system to plug into the power amp in of my combo amp for small gigs/practice. i have the following: sansamp bass driver bass pod furman pq3 3 band parameteric eq/preamp (original 80's version) yamaha g-50 guitar to MIDI converter (first in chain) i have a two space rack that i want to fit the furman pq3 and the g-50 in and have some velcro on the top of the rack to place EITHER the BDDI OR the bass pod. (i suppose i could do both, then i guess just look at question 2) Question 1: i've only used the pod and BDDI for PA only setups (both worked quite well, but i liked the bass driver better for that application). which would work better as a preamp? Question 2: where in the effect chain should the furman go? before or after the BDDI/POD?
