that's a nice idea. I have been doing something similar for a long time now, but I used the non-emulated serial effect loop out. That way I can choose different cabinet emulations.

I shall be testing my cable tomorow during rehearsal. I'll keep you updated if this wiring works.

Ok so the above wiring does work and brings the line signal to a Jack quite nicelly. In my case, in a headphone: I am now able to hear myself during rehearsals! That's quite a relief. I did my best practice in months... The only drawback is that i havn't the slightest idea of how I sound. For all I know i could play with standby engaged and still hear myself !

Only problem is that the line level is a bit weak and I have to crank the Channel volume to hear correctly.

Just wanted to share my experience with using the XLR emulated line out on my JVM210H

Here is the Breakdown.
- 5 Shure Mics on Drums (Snare, Kick, 3 Toms) premixed to stereo on a Behringer 1204 mixer
- XLR mono line out from SWR bass rig
- XLR mono line out from JVM210H

The room is the bass players Basement, prob a 15x15 total area. We hung drapes, insulated the ceiling, and carpeted the floor.
Audio interface is an M-Audio Delta1010LT sound card.
PC is a refurbished IBM Core2Duo, 4GB ram, 500GB HHD, WinXP Pro SP3
Multitracked with Ableton Live 8.22
Re-Mixed in Fruity Loops 9

This is a straight up, untouched recording. No post processing other than setting levels. IMO the JVM sounds great.

PS... don't judge the playing so much, we were all a little wasted :P

Will the signal from this be too hot for effect processors? If one ran the XLR signal through something like a G-Major 2 and miced the amp dry this could be a very convenient way to get a w/d/w rig live, and the tones in the clip above do indeed make the thing sound very promising. I had not even thought of this aspect of the amp before today.
