Hi. I am new to this forum. I am completely new to some of this pedal loops and switch gear. I am not sure if this has been previously been answered.

I just got my PX-8. I am using a Boss with about 10 pedals including a tuner. I use the advanced set up with the NS-2. NS-2.GUITAR >> NS-2 INPUT NS-2 SEND >> Amplifier INPUT Amplifier FX SEND >> NS-2 RETURN NS-2 OUTPUT >> Amplifier FX Return
What is the best method for connecting the NS-2 to the PX-8? I also run two amps using a Radial ABY amp switcher. What is the best set up for this gear? I appreciate responses very much.

You will probably still connect the NS-2 directly as you've detailed. However, I'm not sure exactly how you'd go about using the NS-2 in this manner when using two amps... do both amps have effects loops? Do you strictly A/B between them or do you ever run both amps at once?

Where do you run your effects currently?

Thank you for your reply. Apologies for not being more detailed in my question. I only use the effects loop in amp 1. I am using an ABY switch. 2 amps are on at the same time. The NS-2 runs through all of the pedals. I use the input-output-send-return on the NS-2.

So
NS-2>Pedals>ABY>Amp 1 input and effects loop>Amp 2 input.

I appreciate feedback.

So all your effects are in front of the amps, with no effects in the FX Loop of amp #1?

If so, I'd say the PX-8 would most likely go between the NS-2 Send, and ABY Input.

What is the noise that you are killing with the NS-2 anyway?

I've been out. Thanks for the reply John. I've been playing around with the PX-8 Plus. I must say I a impressed with it. I took out the suppressor.

To clarify. Typically in front of amp 1 - overdrive > fuzz > eq. In back (FX Loop) Chorus/Delay/Trem/Reverb. Ill throw a flanger in there too at times. Any suggestions about placement in the PX-8 Plus? Loops 1-6 to control the FX Loop effects, 7-8 drives and fuzz?

Thanks.
