    Yo! Philly
    I tried it - once.

    Too damn complicated to set up, there was the constant fear of a laptop crash, I had to plan all these complicated patches out ahead of time so there was no flexibility, and the more "freaky" (or so I thought) effects ended up being completely lost in the mix.

    Since then I've gone back to all single stompers, mostly analog, including a few I've built myself. Much more satisfying.

    But if you still want to try, I was using Plogue Bidule as a host.

    Guitar Rig 2 might make it all much easier, especially with the new dedicated Rig Kontrol 2. You still have the possibility of a computer crash though. If money was no object, it might be cool to run Guitar Rig on the Muse Receptor.

    i am considering using my line6 toneport with gearbox software live, i don't know if i will, but it could work...
