Hi there.

So, I own a Boss GT-Pro effects processor, and want to use it whenever I go out to play live with my band.
Besides the GT-Pro I need a couple of things to really be able to control it properly.

I've figured out, that I need the following gear:

- Volume Pedal.
- 2 Foot-switches - to control various effects.
- Tuner.
- A/B/Y switch - for switching guitars on stage.
- 2 channel boost pedal - for that extra sparkle, when needed.

I run my presets in stereo on the GT-Pro and I have a stereo DI box to connect it all to our PA.
Then I would like to know two things, please.

One being - when running in stereo, do I need a specific volume pedal??
Because, right now I own a Boss FV500H, but on the webpage it says that it's a mono volume pedal.. Do I need a specific vol pedal?

Two being - what would the order of this little setup possible be?

Thanks, I hope you can answer these questions.

You put the volume pedal early in the chain before the stereo split.

You've got three FX loops - can't you use those?

Stereo effects in a live situation not only requires a lot of extra set up but in almost all cases is totally useless. In order for anyone to hear the difference they have to be situated perfectly in the very limited sweet spot in the room perfectly situated in front of a well mixed stereo PA system. 98% of the room won't hear any difference at all and if the PA has sub woofers that will blur the stereo image it's even less likely that anyone will hear the difference. It's a lot of extra work for very little (if any) reward.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.

I see your point, Rickholly74.

Though I wouldn't say that it's that complicated to set up..
I just have to plug my thing in and connect it to the Stereo DI and run it to the PA..
But I see where you're going :-)

Use the FX loops to switch your other pedals. You leave the pedals on and switch the loops on and off.

Yeah, I could do that, but that might take up almost all of my "assigns" on the GT-Pro..
Well, thanks for that, I'll have to look a bit more into it
Always good with some different opinions!
