Both of those pedals have a XLR out for DI. I want to make a natural blending of my clean and dirt signal through the 2 inputs of my amp and before it goes to the cab. DI (XLR to jack) from the pedal goes to the first, and the pedal chain goes to the second. Both of those pedals are "sound shaping", and will mess with my clear bass sound/signal. So, easy question. Do the pedals have to be turned on for the DI to work?
