My new HD 500 will be arriving this coming Tuesday. I am very excited as this will be replacing my Vox Tonelab LE. I am also expecting the arrival of a new Tech 21 power engine. The HD500 and PE will be used at church in a fairly low volume situation. How am I able to configure my outputs? I would like to send full cab/mic sim to FOH, and also send an equally suitable signal to the PE. I understand there is a Combo Output that uses "live" cab models and no mic? Can different outputs be configured differently? If not, I have access to an SM57 I could mic the PE.
Also, which version of "EDIT" software should I run? I am running Mac OS X Snow Leopard. I am dual booting my Macbook Pro with Ubuntu Studio. Its full of FREE audio/video production software, do you think the HD500 would work as an audio interface for Linux? Does anyone have experience in this area?
Thanks for all the help!
