    What would happen if I plugged my bass into my peavey TNT, ran the XLR out to a sansamp DI, then ran the DI back through the fx loop return?
     
  2. I think it would work as expected.

    You mean like, big explosion?
     
  4. Hmm, actually yeah. Now that I think of it bad stuff may happen.

    Sorry, I've had a bit to drink tonight.
     
  5. If the efx loop return is before the xlr output, and the phase isn't reversed, you could get feedback if the gain is high enough (> unity). What are you trying to do by doing that?

    the FX loop is after. i think. the XLR is pre-eq.. the FX is post eq...



    not really trying anything... just curious.

    if i sent the XLR out to some effects, then back to the return... i could have a blend of clean and effect...

    Not to sound flip, but can't you get that with the "BLEND" knob on the SABDDI already?
     
  9. No. You'll have the XLR send changed by all the effects before returning and I would thind that that's all you'll get.

    I mean, so what's the problem with just running the danged effects through the effects loop? Have you tried that?

    nothing. i was just curious
     
  12. Oh, the xlr is like a DI out? Ok... my pre has choice of xlr or 1/4" output to go to power amp, and xlr DI output can be switched pre or post eq.... so you should verify if you're not sure.

    As long as the XLR out is before the efx loop, it will work fine, wont' hurt anything. Gives you the option of driving efx without the EQ boosted. Might be better for blending in efx without loosing the tight bottom (assuming you're running lots of low freq boost).

    Well, just keep in mind the possibility of causing a rift in the time-space continuem.

    It's something you need to consider.

    I worry about it all the time.

    You never know what could cause one.

    Thats why I just stay in my bubble....
