Options for using real amp in current rig. Help

Hi all,
Need some help and would like to hear some options for how to hook this up, (SLO-30 amp head) into my current rig..

I have been loving what I'm hearing from the Soldano SLO-30 30W amp and have been thinking about getting my hands on one to keep at home and continue using my AxeFx for gigs. The home aka dream rig will incorporate both the axe and slo30. The AxeFx is mainly used for cover material (because most of the tones are SPOT ON obviously lol. And there's the reason of my own personal simplicity I guess we'll call it, example: went to jam the other day and could not connect to axe edit (Mac issue), and sometimes it's just nice to walk away from technology when I need to play. Flip on the amp and go.

My current AxeFx rig is: AxeFxOUT1L/R>MatrixGT1000fxL/Rstereo>OrangePPC212R+OrangPPC212L
Sounds glorious.
Question: How can I incorporate the Soldano SLO30 amp into the rig to run through the cabs that are currently hooked to the matrix without unhooking cables? I'm not sure if the only way is to have to turn the AxeFx on and do the 4CM or having to run through the grid with FXL blocks. I really don't want to run the AxeFx for this just the cabs without unhooking. Or maybe just use the AxeFx for effects. Thanks

The soldano needs to connect to some sort of load, like a real cab or a load box.
Right. So if the Orange cabs are going to the matrix (orange 212 cabs have 2 inputs on each back but mono so I assume that's just for daisy chaining cabs), is there a way to leave everything connected but plugging in something like a splitter to the cabs so the Soldano can run through the cabs as well?

I don’t think you can run 2 amps into one cab.

Darn! What other options are there to incorporate the Soldano amp into the rig then? Is this the language of "slaving or 4CM and load box type stuff? I don't know anything about this

You need an amp switcher/selector with cab switching.
My humble opinion based on experience... either enjoy the guitar/SLO30/cab (hooking cables, sorry...) or use 4 CM with SLO30 in S/R block... with some rective dummy load... (no on the fly hooking required). Third option... find an amp emulation close to SLO30 and enjoy... ;)
