Play Acoustic pedal and using other effect pedals in the signal chain


Hey all,

So I'm attempting to use effect pedals after my Play Acoustic pedal.  Seeing how there's no guitar Thru, I have a few questions.

1. Is the signal coming out of the XLR on the guitar DI output converted to Low Z or does it remains Hi-Z?

2. Should I be using an XLR Lo-Z to Hi-Z converter/transformer like an Audix T50K Impedance-Matching Transformer coming out of the Play Acoustic before entering into my first guitar pedal?

2. Will a female XLR to 1/4" TS cable do the same job?

3. Should I be using an XLR to 1/4 "TRS" balanced cable instead of an XLR to 1/4 "TS" unbalanced cable into my first effect pedal after the Play Acoustic?

4. Should I attenuate my guitar-out signal in any way in the Play Acoustic settings to raise or lower volume going into my first effect pedal?

Thanks for any insight anyone can share with me!

All the best,
