Dingbat Px and 2 amps

Hi there. I’m new on this forum and I do my best in english, from easy with me so! :oops:
I’m planning to buy a Dingbat Px but I’m not sure if my configuration will fit this Px8 switching system.

I have 2 amps plus 4 effects front pedals (disto-booster-preamp-fuzz) (called F1-F2-F3-F4 for explanations) which goes to a ABY box / direct to Amp A / for the Amp B, I got 3 modulations pedals (M1M2M3) which goes in the Fx Amp B Loop.

Current settings:
F1F2F3F4 ——ABY——> A direct to Amp A
——> Send Fx Amp B to
M1M2M3 to Fx Return
Amp B

I’d like to manage the 7 pedals with the Px 8 of the Dingbat Px.

The question is: if I leave the Loop 5 of Px always on, can I go out from « send of loop 5 » to ABY pedal /one jack to Amp A, orher to input Amp B, have « fx loop send Amp B » to « return loop 5 Px8 », and final « outpout Px8 » to return « Fx loop Amp B »? Would that work properly?

When I read back my post, looks horrible...Really apologize for that but looking for competent and expert people to fix it.

Hope to read from you!

Thanks a lot!
Rock On!
Bonne journée!

Your suggested setup may work, but I cannot guarantee it would be noise free since it would be likely to have ground loop problems.

Also, your written English is perfectly understandable :)

Oh, thank you thank you for the answer.
I guess there’s no other set up possible to achieve my needs with this configuration?

I heard a little about ground loop...when you say « it is likely », that means a 50/50% chance to have hum?

My ABY is a radial bigshot, hope that’ll keep Away ground loops.

I think i’ll order it, try, and give feedback here to share experience.
If there’s any orher solution, let me know.

Thanks again, merci!

Hi there Romain! How did it work? I just bought the px8 and I run my amps in wet/dry... same as you but with a Lehle dual as the ABY box.

Hi Chico.
Everything works perfectly well for me; Was a bit not confident but I fo not have any ground loop or something.
Just had a little buzz at first, but that was due to « old fashioned circuit » from a British Pedal Company ToneBender 2. Move it more ahead in the signal (before loop 1) and it ‘s ok.
Have the ABY on loop 4, which is always on, amp-effect-loop return back to px8 loop 4, and I’m a convinced happy user of Voodoo Lab Px8!
What about your configuration?
Hope it helps.
