I know it's a really stupid question but can I plug a rack multi effect unit in front of an amp(for example practice amp) like in line not in FX loop
for amps that don't have FX loop:
can I?
#2
Yes. I did it that way for years. I now run one unit out front and a second unit in the loop.
However you are being very vague - which rack unit?

Please use the Edit function to delete your other thread. It will take a bit of time before it actually disappears. I'm sure it was an honest mistake. Sometimes it is hard to tell if your thread posted or not.


But yeah, rack effects are not meant to be designated only for loops. Hell you can buy a rack mounted Cry Baby Wah. Like Cath said - what are you trying to accomplish and with what gear?

I'm talking about digitech GSP1101
and btw can I use external expression pedal for it for wah and whammy and volume?

It will work. Try to keep the amp running clean and be careful how much volume you are pumping out of the unit. Test it with a clean sound and adjust the output volume to find the max you can run it. Your ears will tell you. It's easy to overload the front end of a guitar amp - they are designed to work on a wire wrapped around a magnet. Keep that in mind. Rack units are nominally pumping out line level which is a lot hotter than a guitar pickup.

For the other questions:
