Okay I just bought a Peavey Valveking 112 (at the recommendation of UG!), and I'm interested in recording with it. It doesn't have a recording output, but can I plug the effects loop output into a USB interface, or will this cause problems?

Thanks in advance!

it will work fine, if you have cabinet sims on your program. if not it will sound fizzy/harsh

Then you should be just fine. Makesure there is still a cab/speaker hooked up to the VK or you will destroy the OT

That's what I was worried about, I've never had an amp with an effects loop before and I don't know if it will still output sound if I don't return the sound from the effects loop output

some amps will allow the preamp to work when it is in standby.

If this doesn't work could I try splitting the signal out of effects loop and sending half back into the return?

well if it does not send a signal back to the amp, then you are fine, the speaker is still hooked up, so there is a load there.

Not really following you now. Does this depend on whether the amp mutes if I connect the effects loop output, but not the return?

Yes, sorry if I was unclear
