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.

Perfect. Thanks a lot. So just to clarify, still use a send/return block even though I don’t have anything before the amp?
