Anybody (@bridgehouse?) tried this at rehearsal volume?

Any tips if so?

In my case it would be a qsc k10

    Yes - I’ve used that combination at a few of our rehearsals. Works fine - output needs a bit of a tweak as I presume you would also use DI

     Any thoughts on amp models Vs the models of pre-amps, or is it just pretty straight forward to get a decent tone whichever way?

    I could either di at mic level or go line level - any pros / cons? I only use the Di box for the Nord as the instrument output isnt very hot, so I get more oomph from the qsc by knocking down to mic level and then using the qsc's pre-amp rather than the line input

    I’ve found it easy no matter what tbh - I just experiment with a range of amp and cab combinations and Di at mic level and flip through the dsp’s to find the best one.

    This might help with regards to the models

    Not a bad video that - I do find real life to be a bit different. I did a set of models with a twin path so I could do one output to FOH/frfr and one to a real amp/cab and I find that super flexible

    Thanks guys - good to hear I shouldn't need to mess about too much when turning up louder

    No - not much at all. Helix and the QSC seem to handle each other really well.
