I searched for VG-99 and came up pretty thin on results, so I dont know how many folks will be able to help with this one... I am thinking about adding the 99 system to my live rig with the sole intention of using it for alternate tunings. I dont need to use the guitar effects or amp simulators. Is there a way to send the effected signal to the input of my distorted amp and be able to use the tone I WANT to hear (my amp) played with a "virtual tuned" guitar? I have my rig mic'd through the PA, so that would get me amplified to the front of house, instead of having to plug the output of the 99 directly to the mixer. Does it work like that or do I need to accept that IF I want to use this thing, I'll have to relinquish my tone and deal with the amp simulations onboard the 99?
