A: Using pedals for studio processing is a growing trend among engineers, producers, and artists. You’re correct, just plugging a pedal into your mixer probably won’t work too well; there will definitely be level problems. The solution? Send the signal into the pedal using a re-amp box, such as the Radial Engineering ProMP or X-Amp, then use a direct box to bring the output from the pedal back into a mic preamp. Radial also makes a Reamping Kit that contains both of the necessary boxes for connecting your pedals to your studio.
