Sorry if these are obvious questions. I have owned a POD HD500 for about 6 months and am fairly conversant with it. I just got a JTV69 a few days and am still sussing it out. Here's my questions:
1. In a gig scenario I would like to play my variax for some songs and one of my normal guitars for other songs. To speed up changeover is it OK to leave the normal guitar plugged into the guitar in and leave the variax plugged into the VDI port? Each preset will be set up to tell the POD whether to expect a guitar or the variax but just wondered if its ok to have both plugged in all th etime?
2. I have only set up a few of my patches in the set list to use Variax. On some songs I want to use the variax but in normal guitar mode as I like the natural sound of the JTV69 for some of the songs. However when I change to a patch set for "guitar" the variax model knob lights up and uses whatever current model is selected. If I go from a variax patch to a guitar patch how do I stop the variax fuction from still being on and revert to normal guitar? Do I always have to hit the knob manually to unselect variax functionality?
