    Axe-Fx 3 worth to use only for bass?

    Question about cables

    What's the real difference using the output L(mono) only? Without using both L & R? My ideia was to use the xlr balanced L (mono) with a p10 (stereo/balanced). Just a cable. And not a Y cable ( 2 xlr/balanced female + 1 p10 stereo) For a live situation, signal directly axe to a P.A...
