    I looked at the manual and I just want to make sure I have this right before I hook it up...
    So from what I gather, I need to put a FXL block in my preset, followed by a cab block. And I would use a cable going from output 2 on the Axe to the input on the pre-amp. Then I would have another cable going from the output of the pre-amp to the input 2 on the Axe. Is this correct? Will regular instrument cables work or do I need to use a special kind of cable? Also, where do I plug my guitar into? The Axe or the pre-amp? Thanks.

    Cool thanks! Still a little bit confused by their wording...

    I just want to make sure I have this down right....
    so I would run a cable from the output 2 of the Axe to the input on the preamp, then I would run another cable from the output of the preamp to the input 2 on the Axe?
    I keep seeing them saying something about a 4 cable method...but from my understanding there are only 2 cables involved?
    If this is correct, can somebody link me to the correct type of cable to use for these connections?
