I wasn't really sure where to ask this question but this seemed as good as place as any so hopefully someone will be able to help. I'm not majorly knowledgeable when it comes to gear so I apologize in advance if I sound like a 'noob', so I would appreciate it if you could explain as clearly as possible.
I'm planning on a buying a multi fx pedal which has amp modeling as well, such as the line 6 helix lt, boss gt100, headrush (I'm sure this applies to all of them). I want to use the amp modeling but occasionally I only am able to plug my guitar into an actual amp. However I would like to just plug straight into the input (guitar to pedal, pedal to amp input) rather than doing what I believe is the four cable method? Anyways I'm wondering how I should be setting the eq settings for the actual amp and the amp model on the pedal. I know that generally you should set the amp to how you like it first when using just normal effects and then adjust the tone on them to what sounds good but I'm confused as to how I would set the eq on the amp model on the fx pedal.
- Is it possible to just use 2 leads and plug straight into an actual amp input when using a multi fx pedal with amp models or should I really be using the 4 cable method because otherwise it will sound horrible. (my preference is not to do that if possible)
- Can I set the actual amps eq to how I like it, such as how you would when just using effects (my preference would be to do this as some times I may not use the amp model on the multi fx pedal and just use the effects)
- How do I set the eq on the multi fx amp model? To how I am setting it on the amp? So that bass, treble and mid are all at 12 o'clock? Some other setting?
