Just curious...


On my HD Pro, the "Son of Plexi" factory preset, which is preset 1A in the "Best of HD" setlist, is really noisy, a lot of hiss. Don't even have anything plugged in to the input of the POD. Is that normal? My master volume is at 50%, and I hear the hiss whether using my monitors or headphones.


Out of curiosity, I started scrolling thru the factory presets and noticed that most of them have a lot of hiss. Some even have a low freq hum.


I then messed with the input setting, and found that if I selected anything other than "Variax", the hiss/hum is present. Son of Plexi is dead quiet when selecting Variax as the input. If I select guitar or mic or line, the hiss is present. It's really bad when selecting "Line" or "Mic".


Any thoughts on that?

Before line6 was called line6... they used to do r&d for other companies like alesis + others. and when those customers came to visit the offices of line6 (before it was called line6) and the receptionist needed to warn all the guys who were designing products for other companies (and for themselves... ) who were like 'in the back' the receptionist would announce over a tannoy 'tellephone call for 'fred smith' on line 6' the cunning part was that they only had 5 telephone lines, so it was the secret code for "hide your sh1t the feds are comin'" or "someone's coming, let's hide these PODs that we aren't going to release for another few years so they don't see them"
