I can understand your confusion... and a lot depends how you are going to use this. There are some caveats regarding the connections,
If you use the 1/4 outputs on the GSP, there is a speaker modeling like function that is NOT available, that IS available IF you use the XLR outputs.
The STP is an "Insert Snake" which is not really what you want as it is intended to send and receive (audio going both directions in the cable.
If you want that speaker function, then you should get two XLR to 1/4 TRS cables and go from the XLR's on the GSP to the Left and Right inputs on the back of the Crate. Your audio or guitar then is connected to the GSP guitar input.
If you connect the guitar to the crate and then use the STP, Plug the TRS single connector into the Left/Mono/send/rtn on the Crate. The Send cable of the Y should go to the Send jack on the back of the GSP and the return should go to the left return jack of the GSP. This connection I would NOT recommend as it will be noisier and you will lose the stereo effect capabiltiy since the effect is inserted as a mono.

I believe you would be happier with using the XLR's to carry left and right to the Crate and run your inout to the GSP. In short, you have the wrong cable to do the best job.

My crate amp makes a static sound when i turn controls and the cord input port makes noise when moving it around


Most likely a loose connection. Try to tighten the knobs and the cord port to the crate. You need to do this from the inside. These tend to loosen with use and anything that is connected with them will also loosen, like the electrical connections. Good luck!

Crate three button foot swich how do you connect it to the amp


The Fender Hot Rod Deluxe shows a 2-button footswitch as standard but I'm confused. This link shows it as connected to the amp via a mono cable ... FENDER Hot Rod Deluxe DeVille Footswitch which is impossible using two switches. Normally it's a stereo (tip, ring, sleeve) with tip to sleeve being one connection, and ring to sleeve the other. Good luck with this one.

How to connect digitech high powered wireless router YN-8330


You may have problems getting this device to register on you network due to the available subnet.

You need to check what IP address range your existing router uses first, then connect the digtech directly to a laptop via ethernet cable, go to the default address (192.1.0.1), log in using admin/admin and reconfigure the router address to one within the acceptable range of your router..

I just configured one of these on both a TP-Link router, and on a Thompson router.
For the TP-Link (Base IP 192.1.1.1) I set the digitech to 192.1.1.100 (easy for me to remember).
For the Thompson (Base IP 10.0.0.1) I set the digitech to 10.0.0.100 (same principle).
Note: you can use any IP that is within the network range of your router.

Also remember to write down the new device ID and put it in a safe place (email to yourself or stick on the back of the router)

Other than this, all config is like any other router.

Buzz across all channels in crate rfx120


I also have this issue. Same crate combo amp. There is a loud buzz emitted only when there is a cable plugged in. Cables and instruments checked good, only possible issue is inside the input of the amp. Popped it open, solders and connections were intact and appeared solid. Anyone have a guess as to why this is happening?

My digitech rp 500 has power supply but it won't


Make sure you have the OFFICIAL Digitech power adapter. Universal adapters or those for MOST other pedals will NOT work... things may light up but you will NOT get audio. This unit requires an adapter supplying 9 VAC (not DC) at about 1 amp. These AC output adapters are not very common and people get the units without an adapter and try using universal adapters and they do not work. An AC adapter is used by Digitech so they can generate both plus and minus voltages internally. I don't know what your utility power voltage is in Cebu, so you need to get an adapter for your voltage that will give 9 VAC output and fit the power jack on the unit.

Hiwhat is the best way to connect my DigiTech RP10 to my Marshall MA100H Guitar Amplifier


Read your manuals for both pieces of gear carefully first. You only have one amp so you won't be able to take advantage of all the FX on the Digitech as a lot of them are designed for stereo. The Digitech manual shows guitar into the Digitech and output from the Digitech into input of any guitar amp. Since you have a Marshall and can already get some great sounds by running your guitar straight into the Marshalls input, you would probably be better off using your Digitech in the FX loop. Run a guitar cord out of the send on the loop into the input of the Digitech and a guitar cord out of the left / mono output jack on the Digitech into the effects return jack on the Marshall. Start out with the effects level on the Marshall all the way down. Do the same with the Digitech with both the input and output levels. (Read the manual carefully) I think the choice of the Digitech isn't that great because it is already trying to reproduce a lot of what you can already get with just your Marshall but with a little experimentation and some careful adjustments you should be able to add to the sound of the Marshall. Hope this helps.

I have a Crate PA-8 4 ohm 150 watt PA head that I run to four Peavy 10" PA speakers (two per side in series). It was very good, clean sound, but the speakers were cheap and may have been pushed too hard -...


150 watts should be easily handled by four Peavey speakers in the connection you described.. If the Peavey's are 8 ohms, then your total load was 8 ohms for the series/parallel arrangement which is well within the 2 ohm drive capability of the Crate according to specs.

I question if you really mean the speakers were in series? This requires a special cable to do this. Now if you mean they were "daisy chained" like the amp went to one speaker and another cable connected that speaker to another, then you REALLY had ALL speakers in parallel electrically which would be at the 2 ohm low limit of the amp... In either case, with only 1/4 of the 150 Watts to each, the speakers should NOT have been damaged. The amp MAY have been damaged. Try each speaker individually at a REASONABLE level to test.

If you plug into the effects loop out jack,OFTEN the connection to the internal power amp is broken so you might have to arrange a special cable as a wye to go back into the power amp as well as your external amp. In any case pwere ALL interconnected amps, etc from the same power source/receptacle for system safety.

It will not work what colud be wrong


its a crate. 60% of all crate amplifiers go back on defects. take the top screws out and slide out the chasis, look at the fuse and determine if its toast. if the fuse is good, get a new amp. if the fuse is bad replace it and you should be good. the circuit board will have the correct fuse to be used printed on the board.

Plugging line level into my crate TX15. all inputs sound distort


guitar amps are all set to a low Z resistance configuration. wich are made for guitar only. make sure you are using the right cables.
you need sheilded guitar cable not unshielded speaker cable in many cases these cables look exactly the same. look at your cable look for the words speaker or instrument. you need the instrument cable. if you still have that problem. then you may just not be satisfied with the quality of the amp it self.
