  • Effect Send & Return for Venue DI

    First of all, I'm new to this forum. I've had my Venue for about a year and a half. It's AWESOME. I have a piece of shit acoustic guitar, and this Venue makes it sound golden!!!

    Ok, I'm not too well versed in effects loops, so here is my issue: As long as I've had my Venue I've run it as follows: 1/4" Input > 1/4" Output > chorus pedal > delay pedal > 1/4" in on Mackie PA. It has sounded great.

    Well, I just got a QSC Touchmix 8, and thought I'd try to use the XLR out from the Venue. But if I understand the process correctly, that means that to use my chorus & delay pedals, I have to go as follows: Venue Send > chorus pedal > delay pedal > Venue Return. I tried that and the input channel on the PA had a lot of noise from the pedals. BTW, I had the trim of the input channel as low as it could go. The delay starts to loop to infinity, generating a rise to what feels like impending feedback. Overall, this is just very noisy. If I go back to my original path, bypassing the XLR of the DI, it sounds fine and quiet.

    Am I doing something incorrectly? Is the effect send and return of the Venue intended for rack mounted effects only? I'd appreciate any input!

    Hey Ribno,
    Can you tell me which delay your using?

    Also, what are you using to power the pedals?

      I'm using a Blaxx mini delay and a Blaxx mini chorus. They're both powered w/ the same power adapter (Truetone 1 Spot) that powers the Venue as well.

        If you can shoot me an email at [email protected], I will see what I can do to help you out with that. It should be a simple fix.The Venue should definitely be quiet with effects in or out of the FX loop.
