I heard that a buffer pedal will negate the secret sauce of the front input. Is that true? If it is does, that mean the rear input is just as good as the front when a buffer is used?
i would guess no, no negative effect, but no positive one either.I guess another question is... Does the secret sauce front input have a negative impact when it receives a buffered signal? Just looking for the optimal connection for my buffered signal. Thanks for all the help guys.
Why wouldn't you put the pedal in the FX loop, then you can control exactly where it sits in the signal chain and it won't mess with the input to the AFX?i have a Superego pedal in front of my axefx that has a buffered circuit that is always engaged. If the rear input is equal to the front in this case I'd rather use the rear because it's easier to hook up everything at shows that way. Also, was just curious what the buffer did to the secret sauce
Not all pedals work well there. I have some fuzz pedals that really don't sound great if they're fed by a buffered source instead of guitar pickups directly.Why wouldn't you put the pedal in the FX loop, then you can control exactly where it sits in the signal chain and it won't mess with the input to the AFX?
No, there is no negative impact.Does the secret sauce front input have a negative impact when it receives a buffered signal?
With a wireless front vs rear is pretty much indistinguishable. Your wireless is preventing your from taking advantage of the variable input impedance magic that's on the front input.This is interesting. I hadn't considered using the rear input at all, based on what I've read here. But... I do use a G90 wireless, and the read input would be easier from a cabling standpoint. Should I be using the rear input with my wireless? I understood the G90 output is basically guitar line-level. Is it buffered?
