Ok - I just got my HD500x and when plugged into Logic Pro X it's freaking fantastic - within an hour of receiving it I had some awesome tones dialed-in!
My questions are related to connecting the 500X to my Blackstar Venue Series amp via the 4 cable method and using the HD500x as a stomp-box board for mostly modulation and delay - no amp models (all the gain coming from my amp).
So far I have these 3 questions/observations:
- Since I'm using it for effects and not amp models, do I need to add any type of amp, pre-amp or other component in the patch?
- When it's connected, but nothing enabled in my patch, my amp sounds very thin and weak on either of the gain channels.
- I made a patch with just a noise-gate, fx-loop, digitial delay & tri-chorus. There is no audible difference with the delay before the loop or after, so I must be doing something wrong...
I have the output set to Combo Front.
Please note - I've been using a M13 in the 4 cable method for 2 years, so I have an understanding of how the setup works.
Any input from someone who has actually run their rig like this would be very much appreciated!!
