Any advice or guidance would be much appreciated. If this has been covered before I am sorry - I can't seem to find all the old threads.
I absolutely love the DT25. I love the tones and flexibility. Here is my setup. Currently I have a PODHD500 and use the L6 Link to connect to the DT25 (head and cab). I have not updated the DT25 to 2.0. It still has the original firmware. I use a XLR out of the DT25 to PA/House (I don't mic the cab). The amp is setup on stage with an attenuator. I use the amp as my own personal monitor for my guitar. The master on the amp is usually stays put at around 2 o'clock. This is a church setting so a typical set will range from very clean warm tone all the way to very aggressive crunch and/or distortion. I usually use two or three amp models (usually 4-5 different tones with different delays, etc.) for each set. (By the way, I have been able to control the volume between patches very successfully - with time, patience and help from other forum members it can be done). I play an American Strat with humbucker pick ups.
Here is my question. Would it be worth trying out the 4 cable method and not using the L6 Link?? I have heard others comment that they think the amp sounds better going direct into the amp. Would it be worth trying out (borrowing cables, updating the DT25 firmware, getting a MIDI device, readjusting patches, etc.)??
Kinda an open ended question. Just looking for those who have tried both methods and what you thought - or if you noticed a difference at all.
Thanks in advance.
