Hi guys,

First of all: I'm new here. If the post is in the wrong board, shoot me.

I wanne use a cab sim for recording and a more straight sound on stage. I've decided to use the Mooer Radar because i'm on a budget.
After a bit of research i noticed that i can use the slave output on my rectifier for a line level sound with pre-amp and power amp from the rectifier.

Question one: What is the slave output mainly used for? The recto manuals desciption is not pretty clear in my perspective...

Question two: Can i run the slave out throught the Mooer Radar (or similar cab sims) without running the amp throught a cab? (Which would be awesome for recording at home.)

Question three: If not, what do i need to do to create a line level signal with power amp signal running throught the Mooer Radar?

Question four: Is the slave out signal dependent from the master volume?

It's a big new puzzle for me and i don't want to blow up the whole thing. I'd rather know too much than just not enough. Help!

Kind regards from Belgium.

Welcome to the forum

One: The slave out is designed to be used to ‘slave’ the amp to the input of another power amp or effects rack.

Two: There must ALWAYS be a speaker load connected to the amp, even if using the slave output. Failure to do so can destroy the output section of the amp (powertubes and or output tranny).

Three: You will need a ‘dummy load’ on the speaker output to use the slave output silently. Another option is a Mesa Cab Clone.

The Slave output is taken from the output transformer, it will be after all amp controls.

I hope that helps,
