Hey guys, i was wondering, what is the point of pre and post effects on an effect chain? how do you setup up post effects?

The only thing I can think you are refering to is pre preamp, and post preamp.

If you put effects pedals before your amps input those are pre (before) the preamp.
If you put them through the amps effects loop they are post(after) the preamp.

Well, they aren't after the amp, just the preamp. It just bypasses the preamp and some pedals sound better run this way instead of in front of the input. All gain pedals and wahs should be infront of the amp, while delays and reverbs typically sound better through the loop.

Putting pedals in the effects loop (post or after pre-amplification) is similar to putting effects pedals after the distortion pedal in your effects chain. It means the effects pedal affects the signal after it's been amplified and distorted by the pre-amp.
Please don't assume I care enough about your guitar rig, your general thoughts on life, the funny things people have said about you, or anything else not related to the topic at hand to have the view signatures option turned on. I don't.
