I have noticed that my Les Paul has a much hotter output than the VDI output on my 69. I like the higher output because it seems to drive the amps better. Has anyone else noticed this issue? Any ideas on what to do? Currently I start each new patch with a Studio EQ and push the gain, but it's just not the same.
Out of VDI compared to my Les Paul

I've tried pushing the gain on my patches and different settings on the pick-up models yet it seems to over drive the amp a Johnson 250 sadly they don't make them any more but by far the best modeling amp I have used. With the 69s the sounds just mush out. I have EMGs on my strat a 57 reissue and it sounds like velvet especially on high gain. I have a 69s yet can't seem to get a good sound to use live but sounds nice in the studio. Line6 needs to go back tot he drawing board not happy with the product.

Strange as my Variax was a higher output than my humbucker SG and I had to turn down my output about -7db on all patches for it to not clip. You should be able to push your output just fine with patch editing the levels. IF you push them past the limit of the output they will clip.
You must be doing something wrong. If you're running through VDI you should also be able to adjust the levels in your POD.
For a minute there, I lost myself.
