Played with a band one time that ran everything into protools with guitars side-chained to pre-recorded DI tracks. If they were playing, the guitar audio was coming through, if they stopped and there was still a guitar part the DI track would ride in and take over. So they'd be doing ridiculous stage moves while obviously NOT playing, but the sound never changed. Good stuff, for a laugh. I'm 100% sure this dude is an excellent guitarist (now). It's a shame he make his music sound like reamped Guitar Pro.
