mmmh, still not clear.
Let me try guessing…
You are afraid the Eclipse doesn't work well with distortion?
The point was about *where* a digital FX device is placed in an audio path.
If ANY digital processor id placed between a guitar and the amp you are going to use the distortion of, you'll be basically feeding a reverb to a distortion network…and that sounds wrong. If you then place the processor between preamp and power amp, using the dedicated FX loop, things will be ok and the amp distortion will sound great thru fx….or better…the FX will sound right w/distortion.
This is true with most time domain fx (delays/reverbs), and is true for any brand FX device.
Is this what you were concerned about, movado?
