Guys,

I am trying to figure out if its possible to do the above,or failing that only run the Variax and the ES335 together and run the lap steel through its own combo.

I believe theres a way using the aux and guitar inputs for the analogue guitars and the Variax input but routing the signals so they are independant is this a practical soloution?

Its for our guitarist and he hasnt purchased the 500 (or 500x) yet but I need to know if this will work before we start shopping for one.

 

I use the M13 and Pod for varoius sounds at the moment so I am hoping we can use the line 6 equipment for his sounds too.

 

Any ideas?

 

Many thanks,

 

Pete.

You should be able to do this but you may have some trouble balancing the gains without using the volume pots on the guitars.  VDI  for Variax, Guitar for ES335 and Aux for lap steel should work.

BUT you will use only 2 combos on Pod, for 3 guitars.Meaning that one guitar will be running through another guitar at the same time.

Before line6 was called line6... they used to do r&d for other companies like alesis + others. and when those customers came to visit the offices of line6 (before it was called line6) and the receptionist needed to warn all the guys who were designing products for other companies (and for themselves... ) who were like 'in the back' the receptionist would announce over a tannoy 'tellephone call for 'fred smith' on line 6' the cunning part was that they only had 5 telephone lines, so it was the secret code for "hide your sh1t the feds are comin'" or "someone's coming, let's hide these PODs that we aren't going to release for another few years so they don't see them"

Thanks folks.

It looks quite practical once we get a handle on the routing etc.

Shouldnt be too difficult to get the gains where we need them too.

Our local dealer should be able to help us when we get the 500X.

Fingers crossed!

 

Many thanks....

You have more confidence in your "Local Dealer" than I would.  Most don't know the first thing about how to set  up a pod for your unique application.  But we can help!
