    Guitar and Vocals live through POD HD500x

    So just plugging a jack to nowhere will keep the summing from happening, but still allow me to take a right signal (lets say) from the unbalanced ts out and a left signal from the balanced xlr out? That would be ideal, since I wont have to worry about high/low impedance issues. Plugging a jack with no connection on the other side still leaves the circuit open though. Would I need to plug in a jack that shorts the live signal to ground? (connect the tip to the sleeve connections on the inside of the jack with a copper wire jumper) I guess I'll just try plugging a cable in and see what happens, I don't want to short the audio signal to ground if I don't have to. Plus, I know doing that wouldn't harm an analog circuit, but I know squat about digital and like I said I'd hate to fry something!
  2. Okay, so I've been using the pod for guitar effects for some time now. I use it for all modulation, delay, verb and then go straight into my head. I don't use models live. Because of this, I have plenty of DSP left (especially on the 500x) and I want to put it to use by adding effects to my vocals. The inputs are very straight forward, and I understand the internal signal routing aspect totally, so I know how to keep these two signals separate. Problem is, I need an unbalanced output to go to the amp and a balanced out to go to FOH for the vocals. The unbalanced outputs automatically sum to mono so I can't use one of each without sending vocals to my amp! I could use both unbalanced outs and use a DI for the vocals (seems like a TOTAL waste of a good DI and I'd rather use it elsewhere) OR I use both balanced and "unbalance" the signal going to the amp. I'm pretty handy with a soldering iron so I can make the cable, but I need to know whether to short the cold pin to ground or leave it open. I definitely don't want to fry anything. Can someone help me figure this out?
