    I've tried asking this question at the Roland forums with nada response, so I thought I'd try here and see if I have any better luck :)

    Is it possible to send the modelled signal from the mono XLR output to the PA desk, and at the same time run the modelled signal from the mono 1/4" output to my bass rig on stage?

    In other words, are the XLR and 1/4" outputs in parallel? If so, does using both at once affect the output signal level at all?

    Also, if the GT-6B is connected directly to a mixing desk, is the GT-6B at risk of being fried if phantom power is applied at the desk (for condenser mics)? I know I can eliminate this risk by putting a DI box in the signal path between the GT6-B and the desk, but this would seem ridiculous given that the GT6-B already has a balanced XLR output.

    Thanks in advance

    I haven't tried it yet. but as far as I know, the XLR and jacks output exactly the same sound, simultaneously, so it should work fine.
    Phantom power is 99 times out a 100 applied per channel, not across the whole desk. so it shouldn't be at risk. But if the phan power button on the channel you're plugged into is activated it could quite poss do damage.

    I as well don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. Next time I get a chance I will try it, but I normally DI from my amp as my BBE comes after my 6B and I want to get that in there too.
