Re: 2 Questions

Thanks for the info.........

Ideally, while my home stereo does work- my music room is seperate from the
living room, where the stereo is house, so I'm looking for a seperate
system. I might buy a cheap home stereo if that is the best option, but I
have got to believe there is a better amplification system for the Repeater
than a home stereo. That wil remain an aoption though, for sure. I've often
though about trying the digital output on the Repeater, but have never done
it- maybe I will give it a whirl tonight.

As far as the GT6-B, for now, I need to have it stay on the FX loops
because as you suspected, I use it a lot to affect the recorded loops- once
I have a MoFx this will probably change, but for now I need it where it is.
But that brings me to another question- currently, I AM already running the
main instrument (regardless of whether it is the synth or my bass) into the
back panel input on the Repeater, should I be running it into the
instrument input? Any suggestions on a cheap DI box that will work? And if
I *do* put a DI box between the instrument & Repeater, will I need to turn
it off when playing synth instead of bass?

regarding question #1:
a) if your noise problem is greatly reduced when using the repeater with
your computer speakers in comparison to your guitar amp, I'd suggest that
the repeater/guitar amp combination is the problem, not the repeater per
The noise mod might help you to get rid of some of that noise (i.e. the
noise you hear when using the computer speakers), but not of everything.
your home listening pleasure, I don't see any reason why working with your
stereo receiver would hurt. If the receiver has an S/PDIF input, you might
even connect your Repeater to that (and avoid noise from its analogue

b) would it be possible (from the way your playing/sound editing works) to
put the GT6-B before the Repeater, or would you be able to adapt to using
this way? There would be two advantages: first, you wouldn't have to use
Repeater's instrument input, which is one of its biggest noise sources.
Plus, any condition of your signal affecting the dynamics (for bass
typically compression) would happen before the repeater, so the compressor
would not "pull up" the repeater's input noise at it is currently.
If you can't use the GT6-B before the Repeater (e.g. because you use it to
effect the recorded loops all the time), then using a small DI to connect
your bass to the rear input of the Repeater will help a little.
