It used to be, that I could change which stage the volume control actually effect, pre and post stages. pre would control volume, post would control tone, this was with a spider valve that actually did this with, is this possible with the pod hd pro?

My experience is that it does the same thing in either place.  I know you would think logically that it would affect gain staging early in the signal path but that is not what I see... It is just volume in either place... 


I generally just map the Channel Volume to the expression pedal instead and save an FX block and some DSP... :)

Quit complaining and DO something or help somebody with their issues...

I use the volume pedal at the beginning of the chain and in that spot it reduces the gain a little bit in addition to reducing volume. I have it assigned to exp-1 and use it for swells (the slight gain redcution/increase makes for a nice swell tone). I also use exp-1 volume pedal when I want to quickly cut off the volume.

Exp-2 is assigned to amp volume (max 40, min 35) and I use that when I want a slight drop in volume but no change in tone.
