I want to practice guitar silently via headphones using a looper (Boss RC-30) and a multieffects pedal (Im considering the Boss GT-100). The Multieffect board has an fx loop (send/return). I'm thinking of the four-cable-method to accomplish this.
- Is it possible to connect the looper to the considered multieffexts board via send/return in such a fashion that not the looper's playback will be affected by the effect settings, only the input? Will the recording sound 'as is', e.g. can I record a clean part and then overdub a distorted lead sound without colouring the clean sound?
- Are both the looper's playback and the live guitar sound audible via headphones plugged in to the GT-100?
The GT-100 manual (p. 29) describes three send/return modes, but how does that refer to my concern?
