Also to be clear, I don't need the fx for the channel that i send to the Alt Out but to the other channels that come from my modular system. I could send the modular signals into the pedal, but that would probably fry it! So that's not an option either. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong here. I'll try again and come back to you. Thnx for the reply!
I'm confused about a lot of things here.
I would use the Alt Out routing to monitor back from my computer, the Main Out to record, I then select both Alt and Main in the monitor section as needed.
You shed light on an important issue, you're using a pedal, if a line signal from a mixer output or aux send is going into that pedal that could explain the distortion you're getting.
You can plug a modular straight into a pedal, just attenuate the output level of the synth!
Your modular must have a mixer, VCA, or attenuator to do this. You can plug anything into a pedal as long as you match the level.
There are lots of good articles in SOS about basic recording techniques, I'm not saying any way is "right" but it is "wrong" if it's not doing what you want it to do.
