Hello all, I would love some clarification before take the plug on the FX100. Here's my simple setup and problem. How can the FX100 be connected to meet my challenge? I have a Mesa Boogie 5:50 Express (2x12). She sounds great all by herself. But I'd really like to add the FX100. One of the problems with this amp (and pretty much all tube amps) is that the amp does not have an AUX INPUT. So I can't play along with my MP3 songs (into the amp). I was thinking that the FX100 will give me that ability wirelessly through the Bluetooth connect. Anyway, what is the best way to connect the guitar and pedal to achieve the best sound from the MP3 source and also take full advantage of the pedals amp modeling and effects? Should the guitar be plugged into the front of the amp (normal hookup) and the pedal into the amps effects loop? Does this nullify the amp modeling ability of the pedal? I think it does. Please clarify. Should everything be connected into the effects loop (guitar into pedal, pedal into loop). Will this sound good? Will the bluetooth MP3 work this way? Will the pedal modeling work? Kinda confused on the best way to do this and still utilize all the features that sound great. Thanks in advance for everyone's help.
