you use the effects loop to put moldulation, delay, EQ pedals in

you can sometimes use it as a recording out but only on certain amps


to set is up

if you had a pedal

go from the send socket on the amp
to the input of the pedal
then from the output of the pedal
to the return socket on the amp

modulation and delay effects usually sound better in the effects loop

it is essentially puting an effects after the amps distoriton

thanks, whats modulation, is that an equaliser? i normally plug my effects into my amps input but ill try the loop, also i record using a mic and preamp, could i plug my amp straight into the line in on my computer to get a better sound? i have a laney vc30.

modulation is chorus phaser tremolo
pitch shifer

what effects do you have

if your amp has a line out/ pre amp out you can use that for recording

i dont think it will sound any better tho unless it has an emulated speaker on the line out

i have delay, distortion, overdrive, phaser and wah pedal at the moment.

my amp only has fx send/lineout and fx return for the effects loop, it doesnt matter if it doesnt make the sound any better,

thanks

for your setup

put the the wah - distorton in front of the amp

put the phaser - delay in the amps FX loop

you can put the phase in the front of the amp i do this doesnt really matter

yeah the line out should work for recording but dont quote me on it as ive never used this amp

Effects loops can also be used with the modeling pedals like Digitech GNX4 or similar Boss pedals.....if you plug the pedal into your effects return it will bypass your amps Pre-amp, and prevent your amp from coloring the modeling of your pedal too much.
