yes. In the old days before processors, they called it a tape loop.

A processor input on a lot of pre-amps just passes the signal directly from the input jacks to the pre-amp's outputs. ARC's in particular are wired that way. That arrangement is the very rational for the input! But Swampwalker is right---the inclusion of the word "loop" implies the input is NOT a straight pass-through one.
