I have an Empress Echosystem. Much like the Strymon Timeline and other pedals it can feed Left and Right out in stereo. I hooked the pedal with a uni-vibe into the Cure efx loop which is fine for a mono feed. The efx loop I am told is at "Line" levels, more suited for rack mounted efx. I'm not sure that's true. But with the pedal in the efx loop it creates problems feeding another amp from there. Even with the Empress internally switched to Buffered bypass with isolation transformer on right output for stereo output operation.... I'm having problems. Not sure what the deal is except that the loop too hot or something. I am beginning to think I have to place the pedal in front of the amp to feed a second amp. Anyone have any experience with this, with efx loop vs in front of the CURE amp?
Hi Steven....welcome to the forum! Lots of great guys/gals here and a TON of knowledge/experience.
I have a Cure but haven't used the loop. I recommend running any Vibe style pedal in front of the amp. I run mine on my board pre-OD's. Try that and see if the problems with the delay go away. I don't have any experience with the Echosystem.....it might like a guitar-level signal (??). FWIW I run ALL of my pedals into the front of my Z's (including my Strymon Lex and Brigadier).
I'm sure some others here will chime in.
Let us know what you decide to go with!

It sounds like your pedal is being overdriven. The Empress has an input signal pad in the "Advanced Configuration Menu" and I think if you adjust that pad to accept a high level signal from the amp's effect loop send it will help.

Joey Beverages: hayesgary307 try a Z 210 or Z 410 with Galaxie ... also, yes the G1265 is most tasty and excellent
