I recently got my hands (finally) on a POD HD500 with the purpose to play live with the band. But I'm facing a problem. I was planning to run the Pod directly to the PA, but the other guitarist in the band has a regular amp, and he doesn't mic it 'cause we intend to play in small settings like pubs. So of course the two guitar sounds are coming out quite unbalanced and have a weird diffusion in the environment.
So the band members (who are skeptical towards digital modeling) want me to revert to a standard combo or at least run my Pod into the power section of and amp.
But I don't want it! I decided to go with modelers because of the extreme advantages in terms of flexibility and portability and I don't want to give up on that.
How would you fix this issue? Have you ever been in a situation like this/do you have a bandmate wich runs through a real amp?
Is the only solution to mic the real amp in order to have an homogeneous sound coming out of the PA?
Thak you so much for your replies, they'd be much appreciated!
