I just can't get this right. Scenario: I'm playing heavy, heavy metal with the gain of my amp up extremely high. I need my leads boosted in volume with delay added. I'm having a really hard time achieving this with the high gain tone. I havea GE7 and an MXR Carbon Copy going through a bypass looper pedal which I hit for leads. At first I had them running in front of the amp, but wasn't getting the boost I need.. at least not with the tone i want. So I was told to run them through the loop on my amp. In this loop I already have a rocktron Hush noise gate. In order to use the pedals in the loop, I bought an Ebtech line level shifter. Just tried it out today. I have the eq/delay loop going into the Ebtech and then into the Hush and then into the amp. When I hit the bypass looper and engage the eq/delay pedals, the tone drops as well as the volume. And the Hush (which has to be turned really high to keep the amp noise down) negates the delays. So then I put the whole loop/ebtech stuff after the Hush. I believe the line level shifter is not working with the Hush which is already line level. What the hell should I do here?
