Connections for Mixing/Alternating Magnetic Pickups w/Models

Recommended Posts

I am new to the Variax, but experienced with the HD500, through which I send my guitar signal to the sound board.  I like using my JTV-59 with the P90s, and the most practical immediate use of the guitar's modeling technology is to call up the acoustic/banjo/resonator models for specific songs or sections of a song.  I assume that to alternate between the magnetic pickups and the other modeled instruments, I should connect BOTH the analog 1/4 cable, AND the Variax Digital cable.  Is that correct?  Then I need to select the appropriate 'Input' (Guitar or Variax) within the HD500 patch.  Thank you for any responses!

Actually most simply use one VDI cable - the "normal mag PU's (P-90's) signal on your JTV-59P will be sent down the VDI Ethercon cable , then you create specific HD500 patches which assign the desired input. 

 

Read the Advanced Guide for HD500 for details.

Like stevekc says, with the VDI connected you can select either of the HD500 Inputs (1 and 2) to be either Variax (model is implied) or Variax Mags (self explanatory), or both. No need for the standard Guitar cable/input.

Thank you for your response!  I had not thought to look in the HD500 Advanced guide, but I certainly didn't see anything in the JTV pilot's guide.  :-)
