I don't have either XT Live or Variax Bass, but I do have the X3L and Variax 300 so I think I understand the technology sufficiently. As I understand it, all you need is for Line 6 Monkey to recognize the Variax Bass, and that should just be a function of the XT Live simply passing through the information over its VDI interface - which it is designed to do. As long as the XT Live VDI can provide power to the Variax Bass, and pass along its identification info to Monkey - both of which I think it should be able to do - you should be OK.
I'd say just give it a try.
