NS2 on the beginning, and EQ either there or in the effects loop.

and what about mine ?¿¿

boss tu 2
mxr smartgate
mxr dyna comp
boss metal zone mt2
boss delay dd 3
boss loop station rc2

is that a correct order ??¿

and what if a decide to eventually use the amps distorition, and the pedals delay ?¿?¿?

should i plug the whole pedalboard to loop effects plug in the amp in order to have a good signal of the distortion before the delay ?¿¿?

is there any change in the sound quality plugging the pedal board directly to the loop effects plugs of the amp rather than plugging it to the amps main input¿??

Thanks

I think that order is pretty good, but if the gate doesn't remove enough noise in that position, try and move it to the end.

The sound quality may differ when you plug the pedalboard to the fx loop or the main input, but I recommend you just try and see which one sounds the best for ya.

Quality of the loop depends on the quality of the amp and pedals. If they are made from high quality components and noise free, the signal will be better.


Also quality depends on wetter you have series or parallel loop:

1. In series loop signal is mixed with original signal of the amp, and the whole signal gets changed. This usually sounds better, and signal is near-as-loud as if you don't have no pedals in loop. But you can't really control the volume of the FX loop signal, because there is only one signal path.
2. In parallel loop, there is actually 2 separate signal paths. Signal 1 goes unchanged, and FX loop affects only signal 2. This has the advantage of being able to turn that parallel signal on/off blend the signal 1 with 2 by turning down volume of signal 2, which can be useful. The downside of it is that it is a bit complicated and require some high quality components in order to work good. Usually the parallel loop has a weaker signal because it is not made properly.
