Re: multiple amps/signals

I got around this problem by using a programmable tube preamp/multieffects 
(Digitech 2120)  It really gives a huge amount of flexibility, letting me 
feed tube
distorted signal from my guitar into my JamMan, and clean GR-30 signal in 
as well. (or
visa versa)  What's the catch?  It's not really as good as going into 
totally seperate
dedicated amps, but I do think it's pretty damn good, and definitely worth 
compromise for the flexibility.  However, knowing that the Repeater will 
have an
output for each loop channel (4) it makes it all moot.  I could use one 
channel for
bass, two channels for stereo guitar, and one for synth, each finding 
their own custom
preamp/amp/cab destination.  Sweet?  Boy howdy!
