Just wondering if anybody has experience with running a Variax (via VDI), while keeping another guitar plugged into the guitar input. I plan on doing this on an upcoming cruise ship gig, where I'll want to switch quickly between both a regular guitar, and my JTV59. Would setting the inputs at "guitar + variax" cause any kind of tonal issues? (I assume I could just turn UP the instrument being used at the moment, while the one not being played was turned DOWN). I know I could set the inputs for the specific guitar being played, but I'd prefer to have the flexibility to use either one with any patch (with the exception of my acoustic variax patches, of course).
One thing I've been doing is running my electric Variax sounds panned all the way left, and my acoustic sounds all the way right. Then I run the Left 1/4" output to my amp's fx return. I run the Right XLR out to the mixer for acoustic sounds (even if I'm using 2 amp models-I'll have the mixer panned left for BOTH channels in that case-seems to work pretty well). So I don't think the option of setting Input 1 to one guitar, Input 2 to the other would work.
I'd appreciate hearing from anyone with experience with this kind of setup.
