HX Effects with Preamp Pedal


Recommended Posts

I recently ordered a Diezel VH4 preamp pedal and want to use the HXFX unit with this pedal running into a SD 170 power stage. I obviously want the ability to run effects from the HXFX in front of the pedal (chorus/phase) and after (delay/reverb). I know I need to add an FX block in the HXFX unit, but do I just route the Diezel preamp pedal into the HXFX effects loop? Correct me if I am wrong but because the Deizel pedal does not have an effects loop, I can not run this in 4CM.


What's the best way to do this?


GUITAR -> HXFX (Diezel in loop) -> SD170 -> CABINET   ???

The DZL doesn't need to have an FX Loop, it's just a fancy pedal.

Plug the HXFX SEND into the DZL Input, and the DZL Out to the HXFX RETURN. 

In Global Settings set the Send/Return Level to INSTRUMENT.

Don't forget the FX Loop Block in the HXFX signal chain.
