I am playing in a band where I'm splitting my time between playing guitar and keyboard, while singing lead. I'm using a keyboard controller through Mainstage on my MacBook Pro, and want to be able to use my HD500 to control volume on the keyboard. Here's the solution I've come up with, and a plea for advice from anyone else who's done this:
I am using separate patches for keyboard and guitar.
For guitar, I am using my JTV-69 with the Variax digital cable
For the keyboard, I'm taking my MBP 1/8" output to the 1/4" guitar input on the HD500.
L6 Link sends the signal to the DT25.
Recommended amp for the keyboard? I usually default to the Blackface Twin, but I'm not quite sure it's the sound I want. I know I can't use NO amp model if I'm outputting thru the DT25.
Will I get interference issues when playing guitar if I turn down the keyboard volume, and vice versa?
Is there another "best" way to do this? Maybe plugging the keyboard into the DT25 directly will give a better sound, although it would stop the volume pedal from working?
Thanks for any ideas.
