Hey people, this is my first ever post on this forum so please go easy on me.


I have a problem regarding the X3 Live and my Peavey 6505 212 Combo:


I have it set up in the 4 cable method 


Guitar > X3Live guitar in
X3Live effect loop send > instrument input of amplifier
Amplifier effect loop send > X3Live effect loop return
X3 line output > Amplifier effect loop return.


However when the X3 plugs into the return on the amp it stops becoming an amp and acts more like an external speaker for the X3 Live to play through, even when the Amp/Cab sim is off. I have been trying to troubleshoot this but I don't know where to start. 


If I unplug the amp effects return part and only use the pre fx loop it works fine but I can't get the post effects such as delay to work at all.


Is there another way I can achieve the 4 cable method or does anyone know what is up with this? I've been trying for a few hours now
