I’ve had an XT live for years now and always gone straight from the Left jack to a line input on our desk and not used a DI box, nor bothered running two jacks to the desk. The POD has always been set to Studio Direct.
Now I want to know how to maximise the PODs potential and get that sound you get in your headphones, but through the PA. So the questions are:
- Should I use a DI box?
- If so, does it need to be a stereo DI box running from the jacks into the DI and then XLR to desk?
- Can I just run a jack from the Headphone socket to the DI, then XLR to the desk?
- Is there anything else I need to setup on the POD to maximise the sound potential (ignoring EQ on my sounds or anything like that)?
Not that relevant I don’t think, but I mainly use a Variax JTV-59.
Thanks in advance
