Tone combining

This works as a "multi-effects" - it lets you form a chain of modules including effects, amps and speakers as if you were using real-world devices.  You certainly can have a number of virtual "pedals" in that chain and you can even opt to place them at different positions within the set-up.   There's a limit to the number of effects that can be used simultaneously but that's not a huge limitation for most users - you could, for example, have a wah-wah, distortion, amp, cabinet, delay, reverb and EQ all working at the same time - and if you prefer to move the EQ infront of the amp, you can.     If it helps, this pedal sounds amazing and has a lot of hidden depths.  If you are new to multiFx, it may seem a bit intimidating at first but stick with it.   I'd highly recommend going on YouTube and looking for a chap named Jason Sadites - he's not only an expert on this and other Line6 hardware, he's also a superb teacher who makes it all easier to understand (even watch his tutorials on Helix and other Line6 hardware as they have a lot in common with this, plus much of the advice is generally applicable to sound processing).   And of course, keep following these forums.   I've only posted a few times as there are far better informed people than me posting here but I do read a lot and have gained a lot from these other users.

You can currently select and use up to 4 flexible effect blocks in addition to the volume, wah, EQ, amp, cab that are fixed blocks you can't remove.  I say 'up to' because different amp and fx models use up different amounts of DSP ( digital signal processing) allocation. 

 

Depending on what you select you might find that 3 fx are the most you can add, or in extreme cases only 2. E.g. Spring reverbs will use up a third of your allowance, and a jumped amp model will use up around 40% of your DSP allowance.
