Help with Dual Amp Plus Audio Interface Setup

Hey Guys. So here is my setup and question.

 

HX STOMP

Grand Canyon Looper into Send Return of HX Stomp

 

HX Stomp in Loop of DV MARK LITTLE 40 AMP Head. - Out back to AMP - Right Out to Peavey Special 130.

 

I would like to have the DV MARK AMP with no AMp/CAB/IR but the Peavy with the AMP/CAB/IR.  Thinking of the Peavey as a Power Amp.

 

When I practice (Headphones) or Record into DAW. I would like the AMP/CAB/SIms to be there. Is this making any sense?  I have split the signal in HX Stomp but not sure I am getting what I am wanting. I still feel like I hear the AMP/CAB in the left output going to the DV MARK.  Any help is much appreciated!

Your setup is confusing to me. I'm going to assume here that you are using the Stomp as your audio interface.

 

First of all, do you use the DV and the Peavey at the same time? If not, then just make two separate presets to simplify things.

 

Second, in your screenshot I don't think the FX loop block is serving any purpose for you. You are going to your DV preamp, coming back into the Stomp and then right back out to the DV return? Where is Main L/R going? Just eliminate that FX block because you need its send for the Peavey.

 

Third, do you really want to apply the IR to the Peavy? Doesn't it already have a guitar speaker? You normally wouldn't want to do this but there are exceptions.

 

My recommendations:

  1. Delete the FX Loop block and your Main L would go to your DV preamp input. No need to return to the Stomp unless you want to put effects after the preamp. Do you want to move that mod block before the path split?
  2. Between the AMP block and the IR block, insert a Send L/R block. That will go to your Peavey.
  3. Select the output block on the bottom path and change that to USB 1/2.
  4. In the global settings set the Phones Monitor to USB 1/2.

Now you should have your No-amp, no-ir signal going to your DV (top path); Your AMP, no-ir signal going to your Peavey (send block from bottom path); your AMP+IR signal going to your headphones and DAW via USB 1/2. I think that is what you are looking for but, as I said above, if you are not playing through your DV and Peavey at the same time, separate presets would be better.

Thank you so much. So the reason I have the Grand Canyon Looper in the Send/Return block is so the looper has access to anything I put in front of it with the stomp, yet still will get picked up in my DAW. Thanks for your response. I appreciate your help as I am pretty much a noob still with the stomp and settings.  

 

Let me ask you this.  Is it possible for the right output to go to Peavey / Left goes to the DV Mark - yes playing both at same time but neither get CAB/AMP/IR like you stated, yet still have the AMP/CAB/IR available for the DAW only? I guess that is what I am really looking for. So in summary - no AMP/CAB/IR to either AMP, but still available to DAW/Headphones only.  You rock ! ! !

OK I missed the part where you had a looper in your FX loop, so your FX loop makes sense now. The main problem you have right now is that the bottom path should be set to USB 1/2 and your FX loop should be before the split if you want the looper output in your DAW.

Your signal path should be:

[Input] -> [Effects Blocks] -> [FX Loop] -> [Split] -> [Output1]
                                                    -> [Amp Block] -> [IR Block] -> [Output2]

Output1 would be set to Main L/R like you have it and those would go to the DV and the Peavey as you describe.

Output2 should be set to USB 1/2 and if you adjust the setting I gave you above (recommendation #4) your headphones will give you what you want.

Or did you mean select 1/2 in my DAW?  It will not allow me to change Phones Monitor to anything but Main L/R on the stomp. Thanks for your patience. I am getting there...
