FX Loop Block


Recommended Posts

Hi. Just a question as there’s a few different blocks. 


I’ve just got a Helix. When playing live I want to use my amp for amp sounds and the Helix for the effects.


I want to use the 4 Cable Method. 


Do I use the send/return block or do I have to put the send block and the return block in individually in different parts of the chain?


And if there’s nothing needed before the amp I just place it right at the beginning?


Here’s what I’m thinking the two types should look like. Please correct me if I’m wrong.


1. Wah, Pitchshifter, Send/Return, Phaser, Delay, Reverb. 


2. Send/Return, Phaser, Delay, Reverb. 


Many thanks.

Use a single send/return block.


And order is personal preference - the beauty of 4cm here is it's so easy to move stuff around.  The order you've given is the "traditional" approach so a good starting point.
