    Most guitar effects pedals are designed to be plugged into a guitar amps input hence are typically instrument level. They often have an output control which you may want to be sure is set to a lower level less than half above 25%. If the signal is not clipping at moderate gain settings on the the audiobox you should be fine. I plug my Korg effects pedal in this way all the time, same with distortion, chorus, etc.

    Just plug it into the jack (instrument) input and use the gain control on the Audiobox. It should work fine.
