Hi everyone - almost at the point where I want to pull the trigger on this potential setup.
I currently have an M9 which I really like for delays/reverbs. However, the overdrive/dirt models aren't was good as the pedals I own and I see that others on this list and other forums feel the same way.
So, I was hoping to build a rig that looks like this: JTV69 > dirt pedals > HD500 > amp + house PA (for acoustic models).
But is has occurred to me that if I do this, I cannot use the HD500X to separate the models from the magnetic pickups because I would need to connect to the HD500 via VDI cable.
Is this logic correct?
I have tried to think of workarounds for this and I have come up with 2 possible scenarios but I don't know if they are even possible, so I'm hoping you all could chime in.
I use my dirt pedals in the FX loop of the HD500.
Has anyone done this? How well does this work?
I'm wondering how well the D/A > A/D process will do in this scenario.
I use both the VDI and the 1/4 inch out from the guitar.
From the VDI I choose only to use the Variax input to the HD500.
I run the 1/4 cable out of the JTV into the dirt pedals and into the HD500.
Theoretically with either of these scenarios, I can send the 1/4 out of the HD500 to my amp and the XLR out to the PA for the acoustic models.
Will any of this actually work? Are there better ways to do this?
I'm open to suggestions.
