So inspired by James Lomenzo's Rig I was thinking of making my setup: bass -> sansamp RBI then, unneffected signal -> amp input and effected signal -> amp line input, using the RBI's effects loop for my stompboxes. This way I will have 3 signals going: 1) Amp tone, 2) Sansamp tone and 3) Sansamp tone with effects. All that with only one amp, one cabinet and one signal (amps DI) going to the PA. My questions: - Can I connect the RBI in this way to a regular head (Ashdown ABM)? - Is it bad to put a signal two times through a preamp? (the uneffected tone will go through the sansamp AND trough the ABM's pre...) - Stompboxes (Compressor, Distortion, Flanger) in an effects loop, will this work well? - Is it better to put the uneffected signal trough the stompboxes and in the ABM's input? - Are there devices other than the RBI I can do this (better) with? Help and suggestions are greatly appreciated .
