Firehawk 4-cable method with Marshall DSL

Recommended Posts

Hi, would like to know if the 4-cable method works with a Marshall DSL-20CR (the latest DSL)?

I connect with Gtr->FH input, FH FX send->Amp input, FH FX Return->Amp FX Send, FH left out->Amp FX Return

I hear the sound when I push the FX Loop button on the Marshall. However it seems to bypass the preamp, i.e.

nothing happens when I change volume on the Marshall. I thought the 4-cable method meant I could mix the pre-amp

with the effects through the FX loop. Have I misunderstood or what am I doing wrong?

 

Best,

Hans

Your setup should be:  Guitar => Firehawk FX Guitar Input => Firehawk FX Send => Marshall Guitar Input => Marshall FX Send => Firehawk FX Return => Firehawk Out (L/Mono) => Marhsall FX Return.

Move the FX Loop block infront of the amp model, after any drive pedals.  Also, setup your Mix to 100%.  It will put 100% of the signal through to your real amp's pre-amp.   Like this:

You want to turn off amp and cabinet models in the the associated blocks.  Set the Line/Amp switch on the back of the unit to Amp.

Thanks, I have remote control forn the FX loop on my Marshall. Should that be on or off?

You should have the effects loop ON on the Marshall.  The volume will now be controlled from the Firehawk. That's what the big round thing is next to the screen is for.  It replaces the volume of your amp.

Hi! Back from vacation. Sorry to bother again but i only here the blocks that are placed before the FX Loop block and nothing at all if I turn on the FX loop on my amp.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Best, Hans
