Maybe I need more information.
1. Are you using this as a monitor or a small pa?
2. Who/ how is the mixer controlled? Is this done by you or are you sending a signal to someone else to process?
Found this reply from an older forum entry from Craig,who was the TC moderator at that time. The comments are for a Voicelive 3, but this would be similar to your request.
The easiest way, imho, is to connect your guitar/mic to the VL3 and then connect the headphone output from the VL3 to the Aux input on the FX150. Turn off EQ on the FX150, so it doesn't overlap with the VL3.
Doing it that way allows you to use a single small cable to hear everything, rather than connecting XLR's or an XLR for vocals and a 1/4" for guitar.
There's a bunch of setup diagrams in the manual too: http://www.tc-helicon.com/products/v...fx150/support/
Using the 1/8" aux setup also allows you to free up the main/guitar outs to connect to a PA whenever you need to.
All that said, cracking and buzzing etc. shouldn't happen like you mentioned. Double check all the cables, make sure to turn off Tone, EQ, Reverb on CH1&2 since all that stuff is done in VL3 and you don't want to double it up.

If you are controlling the mixer,I would do as you have done. Headphone out to FX150 and DI out of the Play Acoustic to the mixer. I wouldn’t worry about the signal strength going to the FX150. If it is just a monitor, you just need to hear you well before heading to the mixer.
The second option is DI out of the Play Acoustic to the mixer and then use the headphone or monitor out of the mixer to feed the FX150. This way you have a better control of the signal to the FX150 and it is a truer representation of the sound you are sending to your recording device.
That’s about all I have to offer.
