I just bought an Alesis Quadraverb and I’m trying to set it up properly. I have the Alesis setup through my effects loop with a BBE and it’s saturating/killing my natural guitar tone. Is there a different way to set it up?

Here is how I currently have it rigged:

Send from amp-> A Input on BBE-> A Output from BBE->Alesis Left Input->Right Output from Alesis to amp Receive.

Right now it sounds god-awful.
