Congratulations! You're going to love it.

 

Just make sure you clear your calendar when it arrives - you won't be going anywhere for a day or two. :P

Just one cautionary note: this setup might take some time to get used to. I wouldn't commit myself to using it in a live situation so quickly. I would plan to use my current setup until I had more time to familiarize myself with the new system and get some good gig-ready tones. That may not happen immediately.

Congrats,

 

  I just completed my rig as well.  You will be amazed at how good it sounds......

 

  One cautionary note.   Set the volume level of the L2t to 1 or 2 before you power up.  Remember you are using 800 w.  Also, know that the master volume on the POD is disabled.  So the only way to control overall volume is at the L2t master volume.

 

  I got mine on thursday and gigged on saturday.  When I got it up and running, after blowing out my eardrums.  It took me awhile to accept that the master volume was disabled.  Once I understood that feature, I created a two fold plan.

 

1.  To get my patches at a level that the L2t could use and not be too loud I lowered every patch by 6db

2.  Then I went to individual patches and fixed some obvious issues, The good L2t's clarity will really highlight problem patches.  For the first time i have really heard fizz.

 

Good luck

Just did my first session at church today. Went awesome! My favorite part was programming the custom 1 bank on the variax for virtual capo 1-5 so cool. I'm still waiting on my L2t so I can get in deep into programming tones on the pod hd. But so far so awesome!
