My jc 120 is like the greatest amp ever made. Its got, imo really nice reverb and chorus, however it is a guitar amplifier and i dont want to have the fuzz if i used it like an amp then plugged it into my mixer and get my sound mointering all confused. Is there anyway i could like utilise the effects into an aux, its got several outs and ins and other slots which i am unsure about, i know this is a long shot lol.

Yes and no.

 

You will still have to go through the preamp on the way to the effects, and that preamp is voiced for electric guitar. Even if you can get a perfectly "clean" signal, it is designed for a much narrower frequency range than synths have.

 

On the way out, you can use the line out to avoid the power amp, at least.

yeah i think thats as good as you will get. even at a low gain setting it will still alter the sound considerably, may sound cool though guitar amps are great for making lifeless signals fun, when recording drums I often send a snare or room mic to a guitar amp to use the effects/grunge/character and it can sound great. make sure you dont come out of a speaker-out to your mixer though, as analogue wings says you should use the line out.

 

or get a mic and record the speaker, that will be even more coloured sounding but can also sound great!
