X3 Live: Possible to skip AMP models to 1/4" AND use the AMP for the XLR out?

    I'd guess this would be a dual tone setup. But two questions:
    1. Assuming single tone, is there a way to skip the AMP model to the 1/4" Jack to my real amp while sending through an AMP model to the XLR for the FOH sound?

    2. If #1 (single tone only) is a NO, can I change FX parameters on both tones at once? i.e. turn on/off the drive or pedal on both tones.

    I have the X3 and love it. But the control aspect of all the possibilities it offers isn't great.

    As far as I'm aware:

    1. No. You can only bypass the CAB modelling on a single tone. Not the amp, AFAIK

    2. No. Not as far as pressing the single stompbox switch to turn the drive pedal on/off for both tones at once. But I guess you could use the expression pedal to turn the drive or the mix parameter for the stompbox effect up simulatinously on both tones. Haven't tried it though.

    Thanks! I suppose the best option is to just mic the live amp like with the usual pedalboard and amp rig. It'll sound better that way anyways, but I like the option to use the POD's XLR if desired. Could be a good mix of both real and emulation.
