Hi All, Im a long time stalker without many posts.. That said, I've learned tons from this board as I've embarked on my own tonequest.. I've noticed that many many pros have been using the Line 6 DL4 on their boards for years.. I've also read a fair amount here about the importance of having delay and other time effects in the loop and not in front of the amp.. However, it appears on most of these pedal boards as though the DL4 is in front and not in the loop.. Are we to assume that these amps are set mostly clean and getting the overdrive/distortion from pedals that are before the DL4 or am I missing something?? Thanks for your help and thoughts..
