I got an HX Stomp over lockdown and it has become an integral part of my setup. I've been rehearsing remotely as a new member of an already established band using Jamulus and I've been going direct out of the HX Stomp into an audio interface, and have set up all my patches with modelled amps+cabs accordingly.
The band has a first gig since lockdown at the end of this month, for which I intend to use the stomp into my Dr Z Maz 18. I'll need to convert my patches so that they will work into the amp.
The best strategy I can come up with so far is to use various drives to try to get close to the sound of the modelled amp/cab combinations, but going to have really limited opportunity to test at volume ahead of the gig.
Alternative options I'm considering are to go from the stomp into the FX return on the amp or to skip the amp altogether and go from the Stomp straight into the PA.
Buying a FRFR cab is currently out of the question financially.
Needs to be as failsafe as possible as don't want to let the new band down with a technical glitch, so I'm avoiding using 4 cable method which I think introduces too many points of failure.
Anything I'm missing?
