Default Help with Connections with a 002R

Hi Guys. Hope you can help. I have a POD XT Pro. Id like to buy a 1U rack compressor for guitar. At the moment, I plug my guitar straight into the pod, which is then connected to my audio interface (Digi 002R). How would I link a compressor into this setup? How would I for example, if I bought a Presonus ACP 22 Compressor, or a DBX Pro 1066 compressor, how would I connect the guitar to the compressor, to the audio interface, to the XT etc? Sorry, just need help with the connections setup and wondering if this was possible the xt pro. Any help greatly appreciated. Simon

Default Re: Help with Connections with a 002R

Simplest would be to patch the POD output to the compressor input>compressor output to 002R input. You will need to experiment with pOD output settings vs. compressor threshold settings as the POD output will affect the threshold. Use the output control on the compressor to set the final level into the 002r. Your choice of mono or stereo. I usually record my POD in mono and treat it with plugins if I am looking for a stereo effect(like a leslie plugin or a stereo delay). I also find the plugins I have sound as good or better than the average analog compressor. I do compress bass and vocals with the FMR RNC. As you become more proficient and decide later to add some high-end mic pre's, you may end up with a pre that has an insert point. That is a good place to patch a compressor for any signal plugged into the pre. As the 002(R) does not have genuine insert jacks on the inputs, the first method is about all you can do for now but it will work fine. I added a Focusrite ISA428 to my rig and inserted my compressor on the first 2 channels of the 428. If I wanted compression on my POD, I would patch the POD output(s) to the 428 line in jacks so they go thru the compressor. As it is, I find the POD sounds compressed anyway but you may go for tones that call for it more than mine.
