    To play live and to get the most benefit of the DI of the Sansamp, can I put the CEB-3 BOSS Chorus first and then the BDDI???

    So, the question is: In what order you put your other effects when you play live using a BDDI???

    I want to know your opinions before I get myself a Sansamp BDDI.

    Usually you do it like this.

    1. distortion FX, preamp
    2. EQ (EQ, wah, etc.)
    3.compression FX
    4. modulation FX (phaser, flanger, chorus, reverb, delay)

    Modulation FX are the last FX in the chain because you usually want clean chorus or delay. When you put it first, it runs through all FX that come after it. While distorted chorus or reverb can be a cool effect at times, it's usually not a desirable effect.
    And usually the chorus pedal is the only stereo pedal, so you have to put it last, to keep the stereo signal.

    Tech21, the makers of the Sansamp, say the unit should be placed first in the signal chain.
