Hey everyone, reporting in with another noob question. From my knowledge, passive PAs need a poweramp for me to run my laptop loaded with VSTs to get the sound out. Now, I don't have a poweramp, but I do have a small SS amp. Can I run my chain as following, guitar -> amp -> laptop with VSTs -> PA and hope that the poweramp section from the SS is good enough to get the sound out ? The tone isn't affected that much with the SS before the laptop. I need an urgent answer since I am offered a pretty good gig and want to adapt conforming to the situation without wasting too much money. Cheers

Does you amp have line level outputs like a headphone out? And how do you intend to get the signal into your laptop? Just don't plug the speaker out of the amp into your laptop, you'll roast it.
