Hello all. I'm using S1-2 artist and have concocted an idea that may be more trouble than it's worth, but I'd like to know if it's possible.
Essentially, I want to use my POD HD500 as a plugin over its USB connection, however, I would be running my SL24 at the same time, and I fear that will be an issue, and I can see you can run two audio interfaces at the same time.

This would be in a live situation. My main objective is I want to run my guitar wirelessly to my rack mounted receiver, then into my SL, into the Macbook via FW, then through an insert loop of some sort in Studio One that would send it to my POD and back over USB. Kind of "Rube Goldberg," I know.

I realize the simpler solution would be to just run Ampire and control it with my POD, as it's a very capable MIDI controller as well, but I would certainly prefer the POD do the processing. I also thought about controlling Ampire wirelessly with my iPad, which might be pretty slick too.

Any thoughts?
Thanks, in advance.

Just wanted to add something that I think will help. I just remembered about creating "aggregate" audio interfaces in the Audio/Midi app in OSX. That should make the inputs/outputs available in S1. Just need to figure out the patching.

I would just use the POD as an effects loop. Run your guitar to the board and use aux 6 as a send to the POD and return the POD to aux in A and/or B. that's what the AUX returns are there for...

Thanks, mwright, I will have to consider that as well. I could get a two way snake and still only have one cord running to the mixer. I could even throw it on the insert so I wouldn't lose an aux. Actually, regarding the cable, couldn't I just get a stereo cable with the proper "Y" at the POD?

I missed that you said "live". Using the POD as an insert will work if you don't need stereo returns. The setup I suggested was to allow you to record both the dry guitar (on the track) and the processed guitar (on the aux return) and then re-amping later. If it's just for live work then go with the send/return cable on the insert. Just watch the input and output gains so you don't overload anything...

Yeah, I'm thinking the hardware insert makes the most sense. Well, plugging straight into the POD makes the most sense, probably, but I would like to be wireless to make it a little easier to run out and check our sound. Not to mention, rock star poses are much easier when you don't have to worry about getting tangled in the cord. lol

Plenty of gain options on the POD, so I shouldn't have an issue there.

Thanks again for the input. I have issues making things more complicated than they need to be, just to see if I can do it! lol
