I'm a noob to audio engineering, so please excuse my noobness.
I have a chance to purchase a second hand rack compressor from Warm Audio (great price). Before I do that, I was wondering how I might go about connecting it up to my Kemper, or even if I should bother. Is it best to sit in front or behind the Kemper? Sometimes I'm recording the channels separately (SPDIF, etc), so I guess behind wouldn't work in that case.
If it sits in front of the Kemper, then my guitar plugs into the back of the compressor. Sounds a bit weird that I'd need to get into the back of my rack to gain access and plug in my guitar. How's this usually done, which a patch bay or something?
Furthermore, I have for example a wah pedal which currently sits between my guitar and the Kemper. With the compressor the signal chain would be guitar-->wahwha (or pedal board, whatever)-->compressor-->kemper. That doesn't seem right, does it?
