So I have a few questions about this if anyone can answer them: 1. Has anyone ever tried to use multiple ams/heads in a manner where you patch through each amp's preamp by going from Switchblade Out--->Amp in---->Amp Effects Loop Out---->Swicthblade In----->Switchblade Out---->Amp Effects Loop In. The obvious advantage in doing this is that effects can now be placed either prior to the amp or in its effects loop, and I have no doubt this would work great. However, what I am really interested in knowing is if anyone has run the preamp of one amp into the power section of one or more of the other amps, or even use the preamp section of one amp (say a Matchless) into the power amp section of another (say a Marshall). Would this not pose a serious risk of ground loop issues? If it wouldn't, it seems to me that the Switchblade has some really radical possibilities. 2. My second question is what cable to use. I have enough gear to totally fill up a Switchblade and it could potentially cost as much as the Switchblade itself to wire everything with Evidence cables or the like (especially where I love having a good number of my pedals wth function switches - i.e. Pigtronix echolution, Supa Trem - on the floor, requiring at least 10-foot runs). Does one really need/want super high quality cable for the Switchblade loops? 3. Last question is what MIDI footcontroller to get. I am particularly interested to know of a controller that will be good for instant acess switching of the various loops on and off. Ideally, I want to label each of the switches on the controller so that they are permanently set to swicth particular loops on and of (and thus I can label them). I know the Switchblade only lets you turn on/off loops that are included in a particular present, so I'm worried it could get confusing. I guess in an ideal world, each switch's LED would either be lit up (on), off (not in the Switchblade active preset), or blinking (off, but active and available for turn on in the active Switchblade preset. Is this a pipe dream? I am not a MIDI guy but am really interested in the Switchblade because I think it could be a seriously amazing way to connect all my gear (largely for home studio use), but my concern is it would be really difficult to do and still have things easy to use.
