Okay, so I've recently aquired a Korg Mini Kaoss Pad.

It looks something like this:


As it has two line in and line outs, how do I get it into my effects loop?
Both out in and outs need to be used as the effects are in stereo.

It should go something like this:
Guitar - Kaoss - Wah - Distorsion Pedal - Flanger - Amp.

I want the Kaoss Pad to sit on my guitar, if you get what I mean, similar to how Matt Bellamys Mansons are:


Except mine will be my Epi SG Custom with my Mini Kaoss Pad sat below the bridge .
NOTE: My Epi SG has a stereo jack.

Thanks in advance!;

on the assumption that the ins and outs are phono jacks

get a mono 1/4"mono (male)>into>2xPhono (male) adapter cable and a 2x Phono (male)>into>1/4" mono female adapter if you can find one (if not get 2 of the first one and a 2xfemale 1/4"mono ) and connect your instrument cable

the effects will only be in stereo if youre using 2 amps

L - Line In - R - L - Line Out - R
White / Red - White / Red

The In and Out jacks are phono I think

Does that help?

get one of these



from guitar to KP

EDIT: the effects wont be stereo unless you have 2 amps (and if you do, its different anyway), so get a mono one of them^ not stereo

then another one out of the KP, then into one of these



to allow you to connect the instrument cable

also: just for reference, an 'effects loop' allows you to connect FX in between sections of an amplifier for better sounds. 'effects chain' or 'effects line' is better to use when describing your pedals on the floor before your amp.

i only say this because to have the KP in the amps FX loop and on the guitar would be hella complex. not a criticism, jus sayin

I think I've gotcha' on the first bit.

Say if I get two of those three way cables for the in/outs, it obviously wouldn't be long enough to goto my amp, so I'd need to use that silver thingy (what's it called?) to connect another cable to?
Then I've got it.

Oh yeah, I'm a bit stupid at times, but I do know what an effects loop is :/
The Marshall in my household has one

Cool cool

So I could probably get them online?
Maybe from GAK?
Unless you know of better place to get them.

Thanks for the help by the way!!

I'll post pictures when I've sorted it all out.

Cheers;
