Variax And Regular Guitar At Same Time


Best Answer hurghanico , 07 October 2013 - 04:51 PM

Ok so

 

"inp1=guit+aux+variax, and inp2=same"

 

doesn't acheive the same result as

 

"inp1=variax

inp2=guitar"

 

?

 

in terms of dBs it depends on:

- if you use only the default chain, with inp1=variax and inp2=guitar you'll lose about 6 dBs from both inputs

- but if you use 2 separate chains (one for each input) you'll not lose any dB from any input source

Hi, is there anyway I can use inputs set on variax and guitar at all time without loosing DBs before amp? (or anyway to compensate the loss) I hate having to crouch to switch guitar everytime I want to use my strat. (seting input 2 same)

 

many thanks

if you use the default input settings "inp1=guit+aux+variax, and inp2=same" you don't have to change anything when you switch to the other instrument and you shouldn't lose anything in terms of POD output dBs, with the above setting whatever you connect to the pod will be with a full signal

the only final possible output differences may due to the different guitars own levels
