Stereo paths, Stereo Distortion, Stereo effects?

Recommended Posts

Hello All

My questions are around 'how do you use stereo paths, effects and routing?


Q) Do you use 'stereo' distortion in front of an AMP? If I use a dual path with two amps and a stereo Distortion 

in front of the two amps and I pan A/B is this really creating a stereo path?


Q) Do you use a split path with effect in parallel or series?


Q) Have you noticed that the smart harmony block, in stereo if its in front of a dual path does NOT split the harmony out to discrete stereo?


Q) Do you notice anything interesting about stereo block effects before amp paths?

Any stereo blocks used before the amp will automatically be collapse the signal to mono.  This is why your smart harmony block doesn't split stereo.  Using a stereo block before the amp will also use up more DSP.  Always use mono blocks before the amp.  This practice will also help you better utilize your DSP.


I haven't experimented with dual amps, so possibly someone else can chime in with that answer or offer more insight to the rest of your questions.

well, in the case of stereo distortion and dual amps, it sounds different than a mono block (ie better)

the smart harmony doesnt see to follow the path
