Rob Arnold took half an hour out of his busy schedule while he was in Sydney, Australia to show me his live rig and guitars.

Rob recently explained exactly how he uses the GSP and 6505+ together in detail to me:

"If you tried to use one of the distorted factory presets running through a distorted amp, you would have double the distortion, and it would be a noisy mess. And by the same token, if you tried to use a clean factory preset through an amp that's on its distortion channel, your clean tone would now be distorted by the amp. So what you have to do is somehow bypass the amps distortion so that only the clean tone from the GSP is heard. You do this through the FX loop. "

"Basically the signal from my guitar flows through the front of the GSP, and then is sent to my amp in two different ways... The main out goes through my noise gate, and then into my amps input. This is for channels 1-3. But then I also send the signal out through the FX loop for channel 4. When this happens, the GSP tells the 6505+ that it only needs its power amp, and not its preamp. So when you bypass the preamp, there is no distortion, because the preamp is what makes the amp sound the way you want it to sound....distortion, EQ, etc. So in this case, now the GSP's clean tone is sent to the amp, and the power amp makes the signal loud and audible. Now when I switch back to channel 1, the signal is re-routed back to normal, and I'm using the 6505+'s preamp again."
