You normally just plug their chair in. It can get a bit noisy for a few seconds, but then blessed silence.

Ask yourself, how many times am I going to have 8 guitars close enough together to run into one box? I doubt we ever used more than 3 or 4 in that rack at any one time (and still need a couple of separate DIs elsewhere on the stage.
