My signal chain is like this. Bass>Tuner> then split by Y cable>Effects>Peavey Pre>Amp>410 >BMax>Amp>212 This is done so that when I engage my wah there is no notice of the bottom end fall out because the BMax/212 is carrying that like a dream. Howver I'm just sick of the Peavey tube pre and want something different...just not getting the tone of course. My question is if I replace it with a BDDI...where would I put it in the signal cahin with the effects? Before, after??? Also It seem that there is several outputs on the unit. Would I be able to scrap the Y cable for splitting? Would I be able to have the BDDI carry the effects path and have a seperate unnaffected signal go to the BMax for the lows? Any help is appreciated...nobody around here carries the unit, and theres only about a thousand BDDI threads.
