I'm getting more into using my laptop for effects. I record so I already have amazing plugins and some of them do stuff not available in hardware. And I'm doing looping in a new project. But I have two questions: Those of you who use a laptop and amp on stage, how do you protect the laptop? Does it sit next to the amp on a chair or something? AND, what's a good interface for getting the sound in and out of the computer either before the amp head or in the effects loop? I've got an RME Babyface that I love but it's going to put out a line-level signal from an XLR out, which I gather shouldn't go into the input of my TB500 even if I hook it up XLR-1/4". I'm looking at the MOTU Ultralite Mk4, which with its inputs could also be really fun for switching pedals, etc. Thanks for your thoughts.
