i recently got a rc20xl, which i am very pleased with, but i have a slight problem with it. i am running it through the fx loop on my amp (laney lc30) and its fine at quiet volumes but even with the level and fx mix on the amp at max the loop phrase wont go very loud... like no where near enough to gig with etc. when i run it in line its fine and theres plenty of volume but i cant switch between the clean and drive channel on my amp then. i cant find anything in the manual for my amp or the rc20.

is there anyway of solving this problem or something that i havent thought of


thanks

it's with the laney. I have 2 amps and one of them it works fine in the fx loop and the other I have the same problem.

You've probably done this already, but did you try turning the fx mix knob the other way? I don't know about that particular amp, but sometimes these things can be poorly labeled, so you'd think it should do the opposite of what it is doing.

When you wrote level, did you mean the level on the RC20xl?

Does it work correctly in front of the amp?

Have you tried with different cables?

Also write in the Laney thread, or link to this thread. They will know better how the LC30 should behave.

I read that Laney LC's only allow you to use 50% of your effects pedals signal when in the FX loop. Could be that?

yes when i wrote level i meant level on the boss, it does work correctly in front of the amp, now you say it i havent tried it with different cables, i will try it out, as will i try turning the effects mix the other way

Some amp FX loops work with stomp boxes which are set up for guitar signals. Some are set up for rack style stuff which has different impedence. Some amps will work with either.

I find that pedals in my laneys loop just arent noticable at all if you're playing on "just audiable" volumes.... turn it up a bit and its there, but ive never actually cranked it and checked this to be fair. I will do later.

Probably something to do with the cheapo design and the parrelel effects loop, like if you plug directly into the effects loop then there isnt very much voulme and no way of turning it up...

Prehaps invest in a line booster and put it in your loop after the boss to boost the signal. Or just run it straight into the amp with a distortion pedal before it...

Wait so can you put a looper in an effects loop? Also another thing, will pedals that aren't true bypass in the effects loop suck tone? So would the looper suck any tone out?
