Hey all!

I've lately been hearing a lot about the 4 cable method and it got me wondering; What does that mean??
Could this please be explained to me??

Thanks a lot (Y)

it usually involves running a single device both in front of an amp and in the effects loop. the name comes from the fact that the device needs 4 cables to be hooked into both locations

guitar -> mfx -> amp

fx send -> mfx -> effects return

there is generally separate input and output jacks on the multi effects unit to facilitate such operation.

It requires an amp and a multifx with a loop (send/recv) connection. The purpose is to allow you to place some of the FX in the multifx before the amp's input, and some of the FX after the amp's preamp but before the amp's power amp.
