so, i'm still trying to find out the best way to use my NS-2 in combination with my fireball. this is my current signal chain: (I have only tested on really low volumes since the amp is still at my appartment) guitar -> NS2 in // NS2 send -> modded TS7 -> Fireball input // FX-loop send -> NS2 return // NS2 out -> FX-loop return (loop mix is at 100% wet) this way, the amp stays as quiet as with the clean channel when i turn it up (without playing, just for checking hum). All noise coming from the guitar when not playing is also supressed. Is there anything wrong with using this in the fireballs parallel loop at 100% wet? My intention was to run the fireballs pre through the loop of the NS2 to also eliminate preamp noise. I guess my question is "can i use the parallel loop at 100% wet as a serial loop, or are there any disadvantages/problems?". Preamp noise on the dist channel starts coming when i turn the loop mix below 100%, but is absolutely quiet at 100%. If the entire signal weren't beeing sent through the loop then i would still have noise, right? I don't notice a volume difference between the listed setup and running directly into the input without any effects. thx a lot!
