POD HD500 + Amp Gizmo + Mesa Roadster = Good setup?

I am considering connecting a POD HD500 to my Mesa Roadster for effects using the 4 cable method, as well as using the HD500 as a MIDI controller for a Mini Amp Gizmo to switch channels on the Roadster.

The Roadster is all that I own right now. I wanted to run this setup by you guys before I buy the POD and Gizmo. Is there any reason that this would not work out well?

In case these bits of information make any difference:

- The Roadster has a series effects loop.
- I am going to use the POD to model a wah and tube screamer before my signal hits the front of the amp.
- In the effects loop, I'll be using the POD for reverbs and delays.
- I am not planning to use amp modeling in my live setup.

as far as i can see there should be no issue with that setup, can't get the hd500 manual to load right now but i assume the 4 cable method is something standard, and i know it can be used as a midi controller, so that should all be fine

Should be fine. The FX loop can be placed anywhere in the chain. Perfect for 4CM.
