Too often guitarists fail to take into account the signal chain and forget about FX loops. Think of the boards you will see a Chorus and Drive sitting right next to each other. That is so wrong. All signal modulations (Chorus, Flange, Phase, Tremolo) belong in the FX loop or said differently, after the preamp and before the poweramp.
