FX Loops
you can use AUX send/return buss for FX per channel
depending on your mixer
Mono return or use stereo pedal(chorus/pan) last in your pedal chain
typically AUX is used with rack FX
there are 4 Aux Busses on my Tascam mixer

you can also while making "no input mixing board" NIMB
take your headphone out to channel input(with or without gain/distortion stage pedals)
then exploit the FX loop with FX pedals
yet personally don't fuck with any of that retarded shit
because like the capacitors in my mixers
you will fuck them up overloading preamps & channel strips
just because it sounds "cool" today
it will start sounding/acting like shit tomorrow with overloaded type of sustained abuse
FYI prolonged overload on mixer channels is BAD
recapping fuct channel strips is not fun
(if want making that type of opamp noisefloor resonant feedback loop then can easily do it other ways)
there may be safer way performing NIMB via AUX/FX
never really experimented with it much
or personally "need" using that method

There is no 'proper' way, pedals are supposed to be hooked up to a guitar amp not a mixer.

Noise = doing things improperly

DO actually learn how to use a mixer tho yes.

I've never had a mixer fail due to feedback or clipping (but then again maybe I've just been too much on forums and not enough actually playing/recording tho ha), only due to being repeatedly thrown on the floor. :D

How is the overall noise floor on your mixer now?
Noise floor will start increasing on channels from abuse
that is the first sign it needs recapped
get it's not an important factor for some people

have done full recaps on plenty of studio console channels strips
was taught doing that by factory tech from AMEK
also engineer for "Oasis"
~shrug~ never really listened to them or anything

Dunno, my old ones I only ever really used for feedback noise anyway so don't have much frame of reference and my new/good one I don't really use heavy channel clipping anyway :) but yeah like i said never knowingly had anything stop working or sound noticeably worse thru using as a no-input/feedback loop instrument

shouldn't both these threads be in Gear?
