...I am more worried with too much processing in the signal. That's what I was getting at. I mean the MM pedal has it's own tone shaping and compression and effects. In my experience, at least with guitars and amps and such is that you don't run a compressor pedal into a rack preamp and then run compression on that as well. You see what I mean?
I was just wondering if it's "the wrong thing to do" that is even run a pedal into the mixer. But I suppose they wouldn't make these pedals if they weren't compatible with using in front of a mixer eh?
I tend to "think" too much when it comes to this stuff. I'm a nitpicker when it comes to doing things properly and I like to do things only once, leave them be and focus on writing, playing and practicing, rather than turning knobs or freaking out about gear. You dig?
Certainly do, Heisenberg...
...And I'm a HUGE fan of both "Breaking Bad" ...and even more (if that's possible) a fan of the "less is more" principle when it comes to signal processing, ...especially with regard to compression and limiting.
As for you "thinking too much", IMHO that beats the "don't give a sh#t" approach every time.
Also, one of the greatest things about audio is the way that there really is no "wrong thing to do", as the worst that can happen is for a particular "hook-up" to deliver a result we don't like, in which case we simply file it away in our "Never Again" folder.
The other side of that "coin toss" is the way that "old dogs" like me keep learning "new tricks" from you "young pups" reporting those "doing the wrong thing" experiments, so keep these posts coming...
...in the sure and certain knowledge that there's NO such thing is a stupid question, just the occasional stupid answer from idiots like me.
