Will the VDI Cable power the Variax 500 if the 1/4" is used
by Magiamusical on 2010-03-15 16:47:23.5140

I'm working in a setup with a Gk-3 and GR20 and a POD XT Live.  The thing that apparently when the 1/4" cable it overides the power from the Variax/ POD XT.

I've seen setups using the power supply with the 1/4" input but I loose the changing of the Variax guitars sounds.  Any Ideas or comments?

This is my current setup:

the gr 20 is powering the gk pickup  so its probably sending a bit of  power to the variax   throughthe  jumper cable also the pod is powering the variav through the rj45 cable.  your best bet is to   make up a small replacement cable from the  gk  with a stereo end on the  1/4 inch end   and leave the center section disconnected. i have that same gr 20  and the gk  but im putting  the gk kit in  nistead of the clamp on pickup so ill probably run into the  same  problem.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
