I bought a notepad 102 (first run of 102) as a live preamp with aux send and return with headphone and input for cue'ing and I was blown away. Previously I picke up a focusrite IsaOne (crap. went back) mg102c (crap, went back). Joemeek vc3q (cool ... but doesn't have a headphone) ....
Anyway, I have an rnc on the insert and I'm using these KILLER fx pedals made by Digitech: hardwire series reverb, chorus and delay. KILLER for live! The Reverb even has some lexicon licensed algos.
Best $300 bucks I"ve spent in a long time. thumbsup
Cheap pro preamp: daking mic pre one
