Friends , I describe my problem . 5 months ago that I have the POD HD500 , and I have a hard time getting the tone I want.
I have read , countless post on this forum and I reread a thousand times Meambobbo excellent guide .
My two guitars have pickups Bill Lawrence XL500 .
The problem is that the tone I get is " fizz " and heard in my recordings a little " break " or distortion .
I set my presets with the main entrance " Guitar " and the second entry as " Variax " . Pad switch does not seem to do much.
No digital clip between modules, and I hear the fizz at very low levels . Disconnecting all amps, cabs and effects blocks, NO saturation hear the sound of my guitar.
I have placed in my presets up to 4 parametric equalizers , filtering frequencies that produce fizz .
The truth is that I do not find solution .
I have the latest drivers and the latest firmware installed on the POD . Also, I reflashead the unit several times and nothing happens.
I tested with several preset I downloaded from Custom Tones, and I see that I still have the same problem , including , I turn up the gain to most of these presets , because in my pod are heard without gain.
I really do not understand. I see people on Youtube that get amazing results in your recordings , but when I download your presets , I do not sound the same way.
I'm not a neophyte in technology , but it really is costing me get the tone I'm looking for ( hi -gain tones to modern metal "spongy" ) .
I would appreciate any indication you can give.
Thank you very much from now.
