Hey guys, ive had a digitech RP90 for a while now, and i havent plugged it into my valveking considering my VK's have broken down 4 times, and now i want to use it.

What i did before was put one cord into my guitar and into the "input", of the pedal. i then got another cord and put it in the "Left (Mono) Out", and put it into my main input on my amp.

however in the manual it says to put it in the effect return.

am i doing it right or wrong? i use a peavey valveking 212 combo amp with send/return effects inputs.

No that is correct. What that means is if your amp has an FX Loop (It's a whole second set of jacks either ont he front or rear of the amp) that usually has a "Send" and a "Receive/Return" jack, basically:

If you use the FX Loop you'd plug your guitar into the amp input like usual, and run a cable form the FX loop's send into your pedals input, then from the pedal's out into the FX loops receive. (FX Loop Send > Pedal Input > FX Loop Receive)

This allows for a few more tonal possibilities as your effect pedals would take effect after the preamp has made changes to the guitar signal, rather than before.

Try it both ways. Go with the one that you think sounds best.

Exactly. The big downside to using the FX Loop (short of maybe not appreciating the sound completely) is you need an extra shielded cable to run from it.
