Trouble with Aphex Punch Factory and GK 700RB-II

    I'm planning to use my Punch Factory at a gig for the first time this weekend, and I had hoped to use it with the send and return jacks on my GK 700RB-II (so the DI signal would be uncompressed), but this approach produces awful distortion.

    With the same settings on the pedal and head, it sounds great when used as a stompbox between the bass and the input jack.

    The GK manual says the boost control can interact with effects using the send/return jacks, but adjusting this doesn't cure the problem.

    Why might I get this problem using send/return, and how might it be cured?

    (BTW, I know I can send a dry signal to the house using the Punch Factory as a DI, but I'm still concerned about why it doesn't work with send/return.)
