re amping question

Hi
If I want to play a vst organ through an amplifier and mic the amplifier do I plug the lead from the reamp box into the guitar amplifiers line out or into the guitar amplifiers input?
Thanks

You send the VST output to the reamp box, plug the reamp box into the amplifier INPUT, and then rock out with sweet tones.

There aren't stupid questions. We've all done something for the first time once.
Cheers.

Hey me again,
Through my monitors i've always had a high pitched whistle sound come and go, not sure why, when i usemy headphones to mix/record i dont hear it, but now when i reamp i hear the same high pitched noises through my amplifier so it ruins the recordings....its so annoying, is it ground loop problems?
I thought maybe i could buy a ground loop box to put between the monitors and interface, but to put a ground loop box between the reamp box and the interface is going to degrade the sound right?
Damn, recording is so annoying, why do i do it haha

Hey!
It's a process for sure; once you deal with one problem in your studio, another on will rear its head.
It does sound like a ground loop. There are a few solutions:
1) Depending on what interface you are using, you can eliminate the ground on the USB cable by stripping the cable and cutting the actual wire. I find USB cables the worst for carrying sporadic grounding issues. You can do this if the interface has it's own power supply.
2) Plug everything into the same circuit. Use a power bar and plug everything in there. If they all share the same ground, there cant be a loop.
3) lift the ground wire on the XLR (or TRS) to you reamp box. Pin 1 is the ground.
4) You can also snip the ground cable on your instrument cable.

After all this, you should be squeal free.
Cheers.

Yeah. In my experience, different circuits are responaible for the vast majority of ground loop issues. I'd try plugging everthing into the same power bar, first.

For this reason alone, investing in even one of the cheaper power conditioners from Fuhrman or something like it is a good idea.

Line level out from interface
> into reamp
> into fx pedals
> into DI (or instrument input of interface)
