Sounds exactly what I am currently experiencing with the POD XT LIVE!
I have a Randall V2 and trying to use the POD for noisegate and just FX. I have a bank setup with no amp sims, just noisegate,comp,FX and delay.
I have tried every option that I could possible cable routiung I could think of and the outcome has been horrible! I play agressive music and like a higher gain, but the noisegate doesnt even work in front or in FX loop.
I plugged the POD into the front of the AMP, Amps FX Return, and Amps FX send/return.
Now through the Amps FX send/return I get this horrible digital sound and you cant hear the FX. However, my amp has level knobs for both send/return and I can switch between Serial/Parrallel routing. When I max the send you can hear some FX, but they are distorted and that humm is present again.
So, it sounds like the Pro has same issues. I have spent numerous hours looking for people with a similar problem and the fix. Only to find, no fix for my scenario!
I've spent 10 years using this unit and finally have some patches great for recording tracks. End of story. Not once have I ever been satisified with the sound having these units plugged into a Live guitar amp rig.
My oppinion? Ditch it, and just simplify your life with a few pedals! And if a Tech would help you or me out, I would be impressed!! Since these are legacy units. I would list everything I have done thus far and hope someone finds a routing mistake so I can correct it and make this work!
