I just purchased a Carvin C2040, and somehow that now magically qualifies me (bass player) as the band sound engineer.
So I have a couple of questions I was hoping I could get answers to.
1. Is there a way to disable the onboard effects on the C2040, and use the effects 1 and effects 2 knobs (do you call them busses??) on each channel to control the level of outboard effects...... instead of on-board effects? If so, how would I do this?
2. Assuming the answer to #1 is no, is there any way at all to route multiple channels through a single outboard effects processor? I know I can use the insert on each channel, but if I go that route I'll need a processor for each channel, and I'd prefer to avoid that if possible. What I'm trying to do is route the lead vocals and 2 of our background vocals through a single Helicon vocal processor. I don't mind applying the same effect (in this case reverb) to all three channels. I'm just not sure how to do it in a manner that doesn't require me to have an outboard processor for each channel. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
