fx loop 

 

not only of the unit, but of the amp as a well. 

 

Various hookups will allow different things.

The 4 cable method (4CM) will allow you to do what you want. There are 1000 threads on here describing it. A quick search will provide at least a week's worth of reading material.

I use my distortion first in the single chain, set your first effects block to FX, you will need two patch cables to go from FX send to FX return on the pod with your pedal in the chain, and set the switch on the back of the pod to stomp.
