Surely Lexicon anticipated that this would happen sometime.
Unless the MPX-500 manual forbids the use of unbalanced jacks I 
wouldn't worry.
If it sounds good I'd use it just as it is.

I don't know about a digi input for the vortex,
in fact I'm not sure that the Vortex does it all in software.
So maybe "no way"
(Kim would be able to say)

Also be aware that you're missing out on the undelayed analog dry
signal by using the digi conectors.
