Hi everyone, my first post here. Learning a lot and I appreciate all info so far. Cant find anything on one thing that is really killing my workflow. I recently grabbed the HD500 of craigslist as I'd hoped it to be a major upgrade from my Zoom G9.2tt, and thus far it is and it isn't. on my Zoom, I had an option to hear only the USB feed for recording, so it would monitor through the zoom, just my DAW. I cant figure out how to do that on the POD HD500, or if it DOES do that at all. I need it for quad tracking because otherwise I am retarded loose unfortunately.
thanks in Advance
from page 9-6 of the Advanced Guide:
9 Hardware Monitor Level: This slider independently controls the volume of your processed guitar tone output for monitoring (the signal fed to the device’s main outputs). It does not affect the level of the signal fed to your computer via the Record Send. This allows you to balance your guitar’s monitor level against the playback audio from your computer, such as when recording in DAW software.
If using POD HD500 as the audio interface for recording into a DAW application, then your DAW may also offer its own “software monitoring” function. You may want to use the DAW’s software monitoring in some scenarios, such as if you want to hear your guitar signal processed with plug-ins on the DAW track. When utilizing DAW software monitoring, you’ll want to set this slider’s level to minimum to allow you to hear only the DAW software monitoring signal.
I had the G92tt as well and while it was a great pedal, this is leaps above it. It takes time and effort to learn it inside out, it's not simply plug and play but it is well worth the effort...
