Connecting a pod HD via Usb captures the preamp of the floor processor right?


Would it be possible to capture a Marshall amp head via the 4 cable method by connecting a pod HD 500X to a computer via Usb with the help of a proper signal chain?


Im looking forward to buy the HD 500x and i use the 4 cable method a lot, and record via usb. But i would like to record the amp head, not the pre-amps. Is this possible without micing the cabinet?

Not really any way to do it without micing the cabinet.

By connecting the HD500 via Usb to your computer, you can capture the output of the HD500.
Therefore, since you will be using the FX Loop, you may record (capture) ONLY THE MARSHAL PREAMP, not the cabinet.

So your recording will include the marshal preamp and any other FX you will place in the chain, BUT IT WILL LACK CAB+MIC simulation.
Attaching a trial patch.
