what would make more sense..?

-investing in rack/rack effects for live play

- or using pedals for live play?

pros/cons?

and random question, i have a peavey 6505+ and whenever i put my chorus pedal in the loop i cant control the volume... can someone run me through the order of my chain? i only have a loop machine and a chorus

thanks in advance

If your effects loop doesn't have a volume control the level on your pedal should control the volume of the effect.

As for your question I use a bit of both. I have stompboxes for different gain stages and wah, but I also have a small rack with a gmajor in it and a wireless unit. I could probably replicate what the gmajor does with a few well selected pedals but I like being able to switch between combinations of Delays/Mod/EQ with a single foot press.

^What kinda controller do you use? I'm thinking of going rack but I'm crap when it gets technical. Easy to make presets and stuff?

I agree with him, because I do the same...

It's very easy to make presets, no harder than a multi-effects board (similar to a POD I would say). I'm using a tech21 midi board to switch presets (I only use about 5-6 live) and it just plugs directly into the unit. I used to run a rack preamp and power amp also and hooking that all together was fairly simple too. Fortunately all the manuals for the products I've used have been very clear.
