Hi,

 

I own a POD HD 500 and a DT50.

I'd like to use my pod hd 500 with a guitar and a mic in the same time. Is it possible ?

 

in other words, can I use the 2 routing signals like this :

guitar -> pod -> dt50 (with L6link)

mic -> pod -> sono (with XLR output)

 

Thx

Essentially, it would not sound very good due to rerouting of internal circuitry and valves with each patch.  Sound would constantly change.

yeah, if I ever use my POD live with a microphone, it's always just for certain effects, and on a separate mic from my main one.  It's nice to have a mic interface on the POD, but I wouldn't recommend using it in your main vocal line live.

I tried to use the HD500 MIC input as my main vocal mic for some time. The main difficulties that I had are:

- unlike the Pod X3 you cannot 'Lock' the vocal tone on the Pod HD. That means you have to duplicate your vocal setup in every preset. And if you decide to change it - you need to manually change it in every preset.

- the MIC processing requires its own path in a dual-path preset. That means you can't use dual-path processing for your guitar.

What silverhead said.  Plus, the effects in the device are designed more for guitar processing.  If you need vocal effects on-stage, then a separate vocal processor works better.  That way, you have vocal-specific effects, don't use precious CPU power and effects slots on your POD, and don't have to duplicate your vocal setup on lots of patches.

Oh, also, when changing patches on the POD, even with your vocal setup duplicated, sometimes there's a quick cut-out in the vocals during the patch change.
