stereo paralell preamps. possible?

Post by sendep7 » Mon Dec 17, 2012 12:41 pm

id like to run my triaxis and recto pre in paralell right and left respectively for heavy rythem sounds...then switch just to the triaxis for leads. i also have a tc ge force and fireworx to work with after the preamps. no to mention all the pedals in front of the preamps. also in the case that the preamps are out of phase, is there is a way to work around this?

thanks!

Running both amps together or individually is certainly doable. If you're using a GCX, see Page 9 in your owner's manual.

As for connecting the rest of your effects, it's difficult to offer advice without knowing how many and what type of pedals you have or how you want to run the rack effects.

well basically i want to go |-----triaxis-----|
pedals-----| |----g-force--2:90--cabs
|----rectopre---|

then be able to switch on the fly to just pedals---triaxis---g-force--2:90--cabs

im looking at getting 2 gcx's 1 for pre-amp pedals, and one for preamp and fx unit switching


Thanks!

I'm sorry, but that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, so let me ask some specific questions:

How many and what type of pedals do you have?
How does the RectoPre fit into this picture?
Are both preamps running into the 2:90 and then to the cabs?
Both the Triaxis and the RectoPre have effects loops. Do you want to run anything in either of those loops?

Again, the more details you provide, the easier it will be for anyone who reads your post to offer assistance.

ok forget the pedals...

i want to run the recto-pre in the left channel and triaxis into the right...i dont wanna use the effects loops in them. i want them to go into the g-force ....THEN i would like to be able to switch it so the recto pre is gone, and the triaxis is going into the g-force left and right.
