I placed a Boss SE-70 in the effects loop of the AA12. I played around with the send and return levels on the AA, but it was overloading the SE's input. The red meter lights pretty well stayed lit. Is the loop on the AmpliFire too hot for rack gear? I understand that adding the outboard effects is a bit redundant/unnecessary, but the SE-70 just sounds so great, and I can use it in stereo. I was hoping there'd be s parallel "blend" option. For instance, I use the SE-70 in mono in the loop of an Xotic X-Blender, with the X-Blender in the amp's loop, which enables me to get the proper amount of "wet to dry." Was hoping to achieve the same (in stereo) with the SE-70 and the AA12. But, again, it was coming in too hot. Sounded pretty great, though. Anyone doing anything similar and succeeding? It's likely I'm just slightly ignorant. So maybe someone farther along could enlighten me.
