So I grabbed a jtv 69 yesterday at my local GC. Thrilled about the prospects of this combo with my cover band (weddings/corporate events....). I've only had a few minutes to hook it up and play around, and I need some pointers. Seems to me that the best way to get the most out of the combination is through the VDI connection. But I do have some questions:
1. I read somewhere (I think) that the hd500 tuner doesn't work with the vdi connections? Or is that just with the modeled sounds?
2. Is there any reason I would use the VDI connection and the regular 1/4 output at the same time, or is that just overkill?
3. Can the VDI connection stand up to live use? It's basically just an ethernet connection going into the guitar. Not that I'll be jumping around onstage or anything, but is it secure enough for general usage?
4. I've been using the 4cm with my hd500 and a fender mustang III v2 with great results, does having a variax in that equation change anything?
Thanks all, I'm really excited about the variax, I just wanna get my head around it and make sure I'm getting the most out of the set up.
