I have a few pedals and have been playing for about 6 years but I never delved into rack effects. How do they work exactly? I want to get a nice MBV sound so I was thinking of getting a Yamaha SPX90.

How do you plug this in exactly? I have a Vox AC15.

Is it oversimplifying by presuming I can go from guitar > input > (right of left output) into the input on my amp?

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

sorry, forgive me, but what is that exactly?

on the back of your amp their should be a SEND and RETURN jacks. SEND the signal to the INPUT of the rack and the OUTPUT of the rack back to the RETURN on the amp.

so do I even really need a "rack" if I am not doing this in a live situation? Can't I just plug the rack effect into the power, have it on a desk or something and hook it up as you explained? Purely for recording/practice?

nope. i've seen people just sit rack effects on top of their guitar head without having a rack case. wouldn't advise doing it once you start gigging though

well, that sounds pretty balls to the wall awesome.

I thank you for your help.



Once again, apologies for the noob questions. I feel down right retarded asking some of these questions after playing for 6 years :P
