Greetings, I've been creating some early Rock n' Roll and Country tones and true to the era I've tried using the Tape Echo. I like the sound of an echo/delay after the preamp and thought that is where they are supposed to go. Are all Tape-based echo's supposed to be in front of the Amp model? I use my PODHD in 3 different ways: 1. As a preamp plugged direct into Power amp of cheap solid state Monoprice amp for practicing. 2. effects only in front of my AC15 3. Recording into DAW using SPDIF plugged into my Focusrite with Logic. I ask this because I can make the most basic "clean" patch on my PodHD, say a Bassman with a Tape Echo behind it and the Tape Echo makes a fizz or splat sort of sound when strumming chords no matter what tweaks I make. Only Tube, Tape echos (clean or dry) do this. The Analog or Digital delays do not do this and sound great so that's what I've been using. It's difficult to hear this on my guitar amps, but when connected to my Focusrite through my high-end Genelec monitors it's quite noticeable. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks, Jen
