I have a Tonex pedal that I want to use with the Komplete Audio 6. I want to be able to use the amps in the Tonex, FX with the Native Software so they run out of the same monitors. This is my 1st interface and I have a long road ahead of me with the learning process. I am just getting this setup and downloading software. Since I'm a complete beginner with AI's, what do you recommend that I start with 1st ? Thanks for the feedback.

    Run your guitar into the Tonex then the Tonex into your KA6. Then you can use the KA6 as your interface and use any of the NI effects such as Guitar Rig. Output from the KA6 goes to your speakers.

    The only problem you'll have is that the NI FX will come after the amp sims in the Tonex which is fine for modulation, delay etc but not so good for things like drive/distortion. You could reverse the order and have the Tonex after the KA6, but then you're limited to using a mono signal from the KA6.

    So, possible, but not ideal

    Hmm...

    Now, if you mean to use Tonex Pedal as an effect with Guitar Rig, i would not recommend that because it does not support that.

    Instead you can use Tonex as a standalone effect you can put on the fx rack audio tracks or if you use it for MIDI tracks as well,if you are using the DAW, of course.

    That's what I was trying to do. It's not a problem, I'll use them separately. Thanks again for the help 🙏
