Is there a way to decrease the bass levels? I get way too much bass When I play/record the guitar with the output connected to my PC. I have the bass knob turned all the way down in the pedal AND my guitar. And i still get a little too much of bass.. Any help here?

I have an ESP LTD AX-260.

Go to cabin's DEP and increase the bass cut off up to 80hz about.

Before line6 was called line6... they used to do r&d for other companies like alesis + others. and when those customers came to visit the offices of line6 (before it was called line6) and the receptionist needed to warn all the guys who were designing products for other companies (and for themselves... ) who were like 'in the back' the receptionist would announce over a tannoy 'tellephone call for 'fred smith' on line 6' the cunning part was that they only had 5 telephone lines, so it was the secret code for "hide your sh1t the feds are comin'" or "someone's coming, let's hide these PODs that we aren't going to release for another few years so they don't see them"

Some of the models can be really boomy/muddy, as with many things HD there are lots of options, not all of which will work for your specific set-up.


Try reading http://foobazaar.com/podhd/toneGuide/ which is a really deep guide


Some things you might try include:


  • Increase the "Lo Cut" in the Amp Deep Editing Parameters (DEP)
  • Change to a different Mic model
  • Change to a different Cab model - open back are less boomy than closed back cabs
  • Reduce the model master volume (DEP) - the cab when pushed really hard adds som
  • The real world technique often uses a Tube Screamer with low gain (including zero) before the Amp but other stomps can do as well
  • Add an EQ before the Amp (same as the above really)
  • Add an EQ after the Amp
