In trying to set up my Quad Cortex for church to mimic the method used by prominent praise + worship guitarists. I would like to have a wide stereo ping pong delay and modulated stereo reverb go out to two separate amps so the sound person can hard pan the left and right amps. However, I’ve run into some issues. Here are the two compromises I’ve made:
In the first photo (SWTL3) I’ve put a splitter after the wet effects on Row 3. I thought for sure this would do the trick. It does give my sound person the ability to pan each amp separately. But the stereo wet effects get summed. I don’t understand why the ping pong doesn’t hit the two amps differently. I feel like I really messed with the QC splitter and mixer settings too. It just ends up sounding a little flat.
In the second photo (SWTL4) I put amp1 in Row 3 and amp 2 in Row 4, then sum them together into the stereo wet effects on Row 3. Putting the Effects at the end makes a much more wide-sounding patch (the ping pong delay sounds awesome here), but it sums the amps together, which makes the amps sound less dynamic to my ears.
I thought of putting a stereo delay/reverb up on Row 1, but I need that Row for the very light delay and light hall reverb. I feel like I’m misunderstanding how the splitter/mixer works? Any suggestions? Tone I’m aiming for at 2:20
