Lots of bang for the buck.
In addition to the other features..
I find the mute button to be very useful.

All the marketing pieces talks about using this thing between your mixer and your powered speaker. Being mechanically declined, I can't figure out if this would work in my signal chain. My chain is K&K - RedEye - Fishman SA220.

So, I am most interested in the anti-feedback and mute switch.

1. Would this thing work for this kind of singer/songwriter rig?
2. If yes, would it go between the RedEye and the SA220?
3. Again, if yes, would I still be able to do final EQ on the SA220?

Ditto what Canerod said!

I don't plug my mic into it though.. My mic goes into it's own preamp and into the 2nd input on my PA Speaker.. In your case the SA220.

Thanks. For the price, I will give it a whirl.

P.S. I just ordered one for $24.95 + free shipping on Reverb.

Mine arrived today. Just dinking around with it in my house, but holy cow what a great purchase! The AFS definitely allows me to get more gain. I'll post a more thorough review after I have chance to give it a workout. For $30, and at the size and weight of a paperback book, this is a no-brainer addition to my rig.

Maybe a stupid question but, does anyone if you can use just one output? For example just the LEFT out?
Thanks in advance

That's what I'm doing right now (only one speaker here).

Yep, that's what I am doing. My system is mono. I'm using the GoRack in the FX loop (because my mics need phantom power, which my amp supplies). Although it seems like that would be a line-level input, there was not enough gain at that setting. Switching it to mic-level input worked just fine.

Here's a good video explaining everything about the Go Rack.

For under $30 and delivered in two days from Amazon, I can't pass that up.
I ordered one today and I'll see what it does.
Thanks for the heads up!
