How are you guys configuring the mixer when connecting your POD HD to your single DT amps? What's the best setting to match the default DT amp models already loaded in the amp?

Do you hard Pan left and right as default or centre the pan controls?

I have done both and haven't found a big difference except centered raises the volume a bit.  Either is fine since it all goes to mono at the amp anyways...  Try them both, maybe with certain effects one is more useful than the other...

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

Confirming Radats, center versus hard right/left makes a difference of 6dB for the mixer output signal.

If you have effects after the mixer you need to be careful not to drive them into effect produced soft clipping/compression/distortion.

Found in the past that you want to stay below peaks of -12dBFS (measured via USB) to avoid even a hint of compression/distortion.

That is not to say that you can't use this side effect if it suites your needs and ears ;-) ...

Don't forget you can move the mixer to the end of the chain.
