I don't know if there are videos specifically on the mic inputs, but here's how they are used:

- you need to use dynamic mics, not condenser mics. None of the devices you list provide the phantom power required for condenser mics.

- connect the mic cable to the MIC input on the device

- select Mic as an input for the preset on the device. For X3 select Mic as either Tone 1 or Tone 2 input. For Pod HD select Mic as Input 1 or Input 2.

- adjust the Trim knob on device to get a good signal level. This knob is beside the MIC input.

- apply your desired amp/FX processing for the mic channel on the device.

What is it that you want to know? Do you have a specific question?

Hi! I was wondering in the HD500x can you use the mic in to mic an amp? And combine it with what already you have in your guitar signal?

What an interesting idea. I don't see why you couldn't.

I wonder if this would generate a nasty feedback loop. We know that feedback for vocalists occurs when the vocal mic picks up its own signal from the PA speaker; just try standing in front of the speaker with the mic pointed at it when singing!

 

I know the setup you describe is different in the sense that the mic is not picking up its own signal through the amp's speaker, but the same sort of signal double-processing could occur in the HD500 preset setup. You may be able to avoid it by ensuring that you use a dual-path setup in the HD500 that keeps the mic and guitar signals completely separate.

This is true but it will only be a couple of offending frequencies that cause it. With a Specetral Anaylizer (you can get them on a tablet or phone) and good EQ (31 band perferred to get to narrow Qs) you can lower just the problem frequeices and get so you can just about lay the mic on the speaker and have zero feedback.

You'll only get feedback if the signal coming out of the HD ends up coming out the amp (only to be fed back into the HD again). I think the main issue will be some comb filtering if the two signals are ever combined due to different delays - guitar thru an external amp and guitar straight into the HD. If you keep the signals separated L/R all the way thru then this should go away as well.

Hm, that's actually a darn creative idea! Other than distortion, the fx in the HD all work fine post amp, so it might be a cool solution for a Larry Carlton type rig. He runs right into the amp and then mics it and into a mixer for his fx.
