Good morning gentleman! Francisco here, from Brazil! I am new here in the forum and recently I bought the PX8 plus (tired of the tap dancing :lol: ) I did search here for answers and found great solutions, however I still have some doubts.

My chain is (used to be before the PX8):
Guitar -> tuner, Wah, Vibe, POG, Drive1, Drive2, Fuzz, harmoniser, Boost, Tremolo -> amp
EFx loop send -> Phaser, Chorus, Reverb, Delay -> loop return

I haven't plugged it all yet, but what I have figured out so far, so I don't wast any loops from the PX is:
Guitar -> tuner, Wah, Vibe, POG -> PX insert
Loop1: Drive1
Loop2: Drive2
Loop3: Fuzz
Loop4: harmoniser
Loop5: Boost
Loop6: Tremolo

Insert Send -> front Amp
Amp Efx loop send -> :?: CHORUS :?: -> Insert Return
Loop7: Phaser
Loop8: Delay
Output -> amp Efx return

Here we go for the questions....
1- First of all.. is it correct?? :D
2- Can I hook up the chorus like that, between amp eft return and Insert return (because I leave it always on, but before delay and reverb)
3- How can I hook up the Reverb between the phaser and the delay, because is another effect that I always leave on the amp's efx loop..

Thanks a lot guys!
Appreciate it!
Cheers

Hello, and welcome to the forum!

Your suggested signal path looks just fine to me! You can certainly run the Chorus as you have it, no problem.
The always on Reverb is the only thing that I see some trouble since you cannot insert it between Loops 7 and 8. If its a subtle reverb that is always on, you could try it out after the Delay.
