Since firmware ver 2 for the DT, things have become a bit complicated, albeit more powerful.
So I'm not sure I've grasped the complexities exactly, so I'm grateful someone could clarify if I'm right/wrong about the amp + pod behaviour.
1st: If I plug into the DT without a Pod (with ver 2), it's an 8 channel amp right? With a MIDI device (DT Edit, Customizer etc) I can program (up to) 8 amps into the channels with voicings etc. If I turn it off and later come back those voicings are still there, but are the knob settings (bass, treble etc) also saved, even if the physical knobs have moved when turned off?
2nd: If I plug in the Pod HD500 with L6 link, it's now a 2 channel amp, right? The HD stuff goes into Channel A. But if I switch off the amp in the Pod the DT switches to Channel B. Then the physical setting of the knobs on the DT control the sound. Are there now only 4 "amps" available (like firmware ver1) and all voicing are set with the physical knobs just like the olden days (Ver1)?? Are those settings saved if the Channel B knobs don't change or do you have to set it up each time the amp is turned on again?
3rd: If I have dual amps in the Pod HD, I can control which of those amps' topologies etc is the default for both amps using L6 edit?
Thanks for any help with this.
I could work it out by trial and error but the answers might help other who struggle to understand the complexities of the amp + pod behaviour!
