Hey, its been a while since ive been on due to moving and stuff, but im hoping to be on more often now. Anyways, while i was moving i set up a room where i can record. I got a digitech effects processor from my brother and i wanted to hook it up to my mixer. He said i should hook it up as a post efects processor but i have no clue how to do it. I couldnt understand him at all over the phone. does anyone know how to do it and does it even give the best results?

There should be a send and a return jack (maybe on the individual channel, or maybe on the main bus), and it should be labelled (at least in the manual) as pre- or post-fader. I think that effects boxes are usually put in a post-fader loop, as opposed to dynamics processors and EQs that are generally put in pre-fader aux loops (like an insert).
