Hi gang,


...and to hear each amp model in the patch.


I have one (1,single, uno) DT25 combo.  One HD500X.  One very nice JTV-89F.  A VDI cable and an appropriate quality XLR cable for L6 Link.  I've read for hours each day for the past weeks to exhaustion.  Both L6 forums and where ever Google takes me.


Near as I can tell I gotta have two of something, either DTs, Stage Sources or active monitors, etc.  Since I started with the DT25 I've been amazed and spoiled.


I JUST read a thread about using an expression pedal to "mix" two amp paths together in the POD....


I'm about to return the Variax (did I mention it was very nice?) in exchange for another DT25 combo.  Or go another direction with two L2m's, in which case the DT would have to go too (output modes, ARGH).


So how are you guys (forums folks, not directed at Line 6) dealing with this?  I'm reading that there's lots of us trying and search...


 - Tony

You can still do dual amp patches with the DT, just remember the physical apower sections will stay locked to the amp in channel A.  Both amps will have their own sound but they will both have to use the topology of the channel A amp.  The only difference is both channels are summed to mono with L6 link. 


I don't find the pdeal useful for mixing the two amps because there is a dead space where both amps are at 50% as one goes up and the other down.  However, I do love it for switching between them within a patch because there is no noise or hesitation like when the amps click on and off with a FS. They just change as quicly as you can rock your foot.


Of course with 2 DT's you can get some physical stereo separation but I doubt it is worth it.  Stereo guitar in a live band situation just leads to problems for the audience.  Even feeding a stereo signal to the PA, the crowd on the left will have a hard time hearing what's coming out of the right and vice versa excapt in very small venues.
