    How do you use your Ethos? At the end of your signal chain like an amp, or before ambient effects like an OD?

    Curious how it's working for those who are using it at the end of the chain and how you like having ambient effects before it.

    run it before mod pedals...sounds great...youd probably put it at the end of the chain if you are running it as a simulator

    I've tried it both ways but don't hear a lot of change...just wondering what others hear, one way or the other. It doesn't seem to overdrive the inputs on the ambients when it's before them, so I can use it either way, which is nice.

    I have used this in the following ways.. all work great
    1) Direct recording
    2) Direct to PA
    3) Before an amp ( name one) as both a clean channel and dirt channel
    4) As a late night pedal tester with pnones..dirt before/ mod after...
    Just love this thing after a year plus...

    I like having the eq at my fingertips so I run my effects off the Ethos and all of it into my amp.
