I've got a Peavey 6505+ and I'm wanting to know if I can run my Pod hd pro before and after the actual amp, like I'll explain what I want to do:

I want to run the pods effects like comp, gate and things like that before my peaveys pre amp and then run things like delay reverb and eq's n what not after my peaveys pre amp and before the peaveys power amp section

So sort of like:

pod guitar input (run some fxs)->
Peavey guitar input->
get peavey distortion ->
fx loop send of peavey to pod->
pod fx->
pod out to peavey fx loop return->
Power amp output to actual cab.

So I won't need to run a amp and cab simulator in the chain on the pod obviously.

Anyone able to let me know if I can do this and if so how I would arrange for the pod to put the delay on the fx loop send and returns instead of through the guitar input at the start before the pre amp

Thanks in advance!

I believe the 4 cable method does exactly what you want to do.

Yes, that's exactly what the 4CM is for.


Guitar > Pod In, Pod FX Send > Amp In, Amp FX Send > Pod FX Return, Pod Out > Amp FX Return, Noise.


If you search the forum archive for 4CM, there's loads of stuff.
