Therefore it's either the amp or the pedal.

Try plugging the FX loop into itself without the pedal so that the loop is active.

I have seen that error before, but I havent used GP5 for years.

Could mean that particular file isn't readable.

Could also be something to do with it being pirated software, if it is.
