Put Your AmpKit Pedals in the Right Order

Just as with physical gear AmpKit will sound bad if you put the stomp boxes in the wrong order or in the wrong place. This is most obvious with the delay pedal (D-delay). Per default it’s put before the amp if you add it to a setup, which sounds like crap if you add distortion. […]
