I've definitely noticed a sonic difference between plugging into a pedal directly vs through an aux send, but part of that is the Mixer-In-Question; I have two mixers, and one has a noticeably better aux send/return architecture than the other.
All that being said, these days I use a strymon AA.1 to get the levels sorted and it works great going between synths and pedals and back again.
The AA.1 is great, if you're into Euro!
I must admit, I'm not having any issues now, with my mixer, I'm keeping an eye on levels.
It all sounds very full and more than fine, trouble is I'm running out of aux sends! Or should I say, I've run out!
