Hey RG, looks pretty cool. I wonder how it compares to the ADA MP1ch, a similar unit in many ways.  Trouble is, you really have to hear/try them and they're not cheap.

Hey RG, I'm looking at the Behringer Xenyx 502, if you have level controls for all channels then it's a different model  :dunno: .  Do you have a manual you can send me of the one you have ? (and or pics (top & rear is all I need).Do you want to record with this or go into live amp/cabs ?

I borrowed a little 15 w Blackstar a while ago for a jam, it was a nice little amp.  pair of EL84s output tubes, tube preamp stage, nice built in digital reverb.  Sounded good for blues/rock which is what we were doing.  Not loud enough for a real kit though but IIRC it had some cab sim outs.  I thought it was too expensive (and it was 2nd hand) or I might have bought it (it was so portable) and had a nice tone.However, no idea about their bigger whatever models (which I assume you guys are talking about ?)

Hey RG, that's one way to go, remember the XLR input is a mic input (does it have a pad or line level switch ?), you'll need to be careful not to overload it from the preamp, upside is it's balanced (XLR). Also the only channel volume is on ch1 so the other channels you'll need to control from the Fx out level, so are you going to feed the Fx device from the Rockmaster Fx send ?Also is the Rockmaster XLR out cab simmed ? If the target is a desk (as you say) it probably is (so into amp > cabs will lack tops) but for recording  :thumb-up: .
More I had in mind MP1 > ch 1/2, MP1 Fx send into FX L (mono), Fx outs L/R > ch 3/4, main outs > amp > cabs
But there are quite a few options (as always)

Your not alone MJMP, the best thing about going rack for me way back when was to just have a midi pedal at my feet and put all the pedals and wall warts out to pasture.  But hey each to their own.

Hey RG, looks like you could at least use it to bring 2 stereo outputs together

No worries  :thumb-up: , there are also other ways you could do it depending what other gear you have and what you are trying to achieve.

Well welcome back !!!!  :thumb-up:

Hey Bazza, welcome to the depot  :thumb-up: :wave: .  There's a bunch of ways you can patch things, all with different results.  The GT100 isn't a great fit for a MP1 rig as it wants to rule the world and seems largely designed for recording using its amp simulators etc.  How you patch it depends what you want to do eg do you want to record with it ?, do you want to make a live rig (do you have a power amp and cabs ?).
Probably the easiest way is how RG uses his MP1 with his boss GT5 thingy (in essence, it's a similar idea/unit to the GT100) and put the MP1 in the GT100 Fx loop.  So your MP1 becomes a glorified distortion pedal.  This will work, but the MP1 is then mono but you can use all the GT100 features.Alternately you could put the GT100 in the MP1's Fx loop and turn off all the stuff in it you don't want ie all it's preamp stuff.Either of these options will work but getting the gain structure right will be a bit tricky as neither of them are designed to work this way particularly as both units expect a guitar level signal on their input and output a line level signal.
I'm in Canberra so I'll PM you my phone number, your welcome to give me a call and we can talk it through (if you'd like)
