I've installed the pickup and done the firmware update...so I think I should be ready to start using this thing. I've watched a lot of the YouTube videos and none of them really explain much about what I am asking about in my questions below...any help would be hugely appreciated!I've also gone through a lot of the threads in here, but there is SO MUCH that it is hard to find the specific information I am trying to find. 1. Do I really need that special guitar cable (BGK-15 or 30?)...or will my GM-800 not work at all if I just use a nice high-end guitar cable?2. I've installed all the drivers and software onto my computer, but still can't get any sound to come out of my computer speakers. I'm not sure what to do. Is it because I don't have that special BGK cable...or is there some sort of setup on my pedal that I need to do in order for it to work with my computer?3. How would I use it if I wanted to include it on my pedalboard with all of my other effects pedals? Would I need to run the cable out of the GK-5 pickup into the GM-800 and another cable out of my guitar input jack into my pedalboard? I would like to have the option to switch from the GM-800 to my other pedals in the middle of a song, so what exactly is the setup for that? Where do all the cables go (in and out) if I have the GM-800 at the beginning of the signal chain of my pedalboard?4. The Boss manual is so difficult to understand, can someone let me know what essential settings I need to sort out so I can start using this damn thing??
