I've just started out with effects and i picked up an XT today. What is the best way to run the unit into a combo. I'll be running into a Raven RG60 1x12. It has an effects loop on the unit, but i have heard conflicting stories of it being better to run through the guitar input. Any help would be awsome!
You're looking to use the XT solely for effects and not the amp and cab modeling? If so, put it in the effects loop. You may have volume issues though. The 'output' control on the XT may end up acting as a master volume for your amp rather than the mix level of the effects signal.
If you want to use amp modeling (which is how I run it) I run a single cable from the XT's output into the amps effects return input.... It actually sounds really good.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.
