I have tried "left panning" my tones since I'm using the 1 XLR to the board but have not really heard a difference, but as I understand it, if I use a "stereo" effect and run it "pre" then I will get the full sound of that effect in the "house" mix if I center pan or left pan?
If you only connect one XLR, the X3 automatically sums the output to mono, so panning has no effect.
If you search both on this forum and on the Internet in general, you will find lots of info about the ordering of effects, but in the end it's highly subjective. You need to experiment and see what sounds best to you. Luckily, the X3 makes experimentation much easier than with a "real" rig .
FWIW, most people run delays, mods, and 'verbs after the amp (i.e., Post).
