Yup . . you can mike your existing setup, or change the HD globally to the "studio" setting and use a FSFR monitor on stage. That's how i do it on stage and i'm very stisfied with it.

Cheers for that, I'd like to avoid 'miking up' if poss as its just 'more gear' on stage and more leads on the floor which drive me insane, ideally i'd like to take two leads (stereo) out of the back and into the PA. Out of interest, and being a 'live' gigging musician...did you build your patches from scratch using the 'studio/direct' global setting knowing that you'd be plugging into a PA...I assume you then used the 'full' amp/cab options as opposed to the 'pre' amp option...or did you build your patches (as I've done) with a cab, perhaps using the power amp combo global option...and then just switch it to studio/direct??...
I assume it would be best to try both and perhaps build a couple of different patches with different i/o options and see what sounds best?!

Yes, i build my sounds (almost) from scratch using the complete amp/cab simulations. At home i practice over a Behringer console, small power amp and a pair of JBL Control One speakers. Our stage setup is a Dynacord (german) power mixer, two 12/3 speaker system plus an active subwoofer. Our so called monitor system is a small active monitor: http://www.thomann.de/gb/the_box_ma205_aktivmonitor.htm
As we are only a two piece band we just route a mono mix of the FOH signal to the monitor.
I actually would like to have is a programmable global EQ section in the output of the HD to adapt to different sound systems, but i get around.
Here's a little vid of how we sound, actually this is recorded with my old (but reliable) POD II. http://59elcamino.wordpress.com/media/video/

I'd echo kman900 on that point. It's a different approach with FRFR and since you're modelling the cab it'd be worth playing around with the amps with full power amp models. I also found that any patch with delay or reverb needed tweaking when compared to using it through a normal cab.
@kman900 A global EQ would be a god send!
