First off, I’m an HX Stomp newbie and completely excited with the countless opportunities unlocked with this new pedal. I’m mainly using the Stomp as an “on pedalboard” amp and cab/ir simulator for live direct to house application.
1) I use Strymon Timeline and Big Sky for my wet effects. Should I run those thru the Stomp using a FX s/r and internal FX block? Or simply run the wet effects after Stomp? Pros and cons with both approaches (e.g. quality differences)?
2). For FOH live application, I currently run out of my pedalboard into a Radial JDI passive direct box to mixing board. How should the EQ be set on the mixing board to get the best/true sound reproduction? I have pretty inexperienced sound engineers and I don’t want to have them tweak to death so it’s horrible and unrecognizeable. I want to set myself to give some guidance. I know the Stomp/Helix can translate great live just need some guidance.
3) Practice to Live. My goal is to simulate at home to getting best tones at practice and setup that translate great live. I am using a PA system at home. Should I replace with FRFR monitors? I want to ensure what I’m spending several hours tweaking at home works and is consistent live.
Thanks in advance for your help.
