it's so you can put effects after the preamp gain.

if you need more info, do some searching. i know i have personally answered this question and gone mildly in depth on many occasions... but if after that, you don't have an answer to a specific question, shoot.

The effects loop is a feature which allows you to run pedals and racks between the Preamp and the Poweramp. This means that you can use effects on your amps distortion.

yeah, as stated above - it's so you can have phase-d, flange-d, and or chorus-ed distortion instead of distorted effects ... some distortion boxes "work" in the loop and some don't ... trial and error mostly ...

I've found them most useful for running rack units in, as the line level in, line level out is suited to racks.

Pedals are made for less signal going through them, so it can freak some of them out.

Thankfully on well designed effects loops there are send and return levels.
