after solving an issue on Pod HD 500 drive knob I've finally tried it with DT25 amp (L6 link) at the right volume with the band.
Ok, great impression about sound and loudness...I'm quite satisfied..Even the XLR direct output from DT25 to the mixer seems to work properly (considering the bad quality of our PA speakers).....but I have some doubts about distorted/High gain sounds.
Now I want just to ask to everyone have the PoD HD + DT amp what's their favorites setting.
I use Amp models PRE only, and i notice that it's sound good if a use the speaker simulation also with clean sounds (I.e. Tweed pre + 4x10 Tweed or 2x12 Deluxe).
I found difficult understand if the cabinet simulation it's too much with distorted or high gain sounds.
What's your idea about?
From the moment that the Amp has its own speaker (it seems a quality speaker also)...do you think it's too much add also the speaker simulation?
This because I have created some Clean/Twang/Crunchy sounds (Stones oriented) with the speaker simulation also and I love them, but I don't find the same results with distorted (so actually I prefer to disable the Cabinet emulation).
I mean distorted sound for rhythm or lead for rock-Hard rock (not Metal)
This considering always that the behavior of the amp DT25 is exactly has you expect from a tube amp...so it changes completely from low volume (home practice) to live use (40-50 % of master volume is my setting)…and I can’t test the presets at home at the right volume (living in a flat)
Any comment will be appreciated.
I hope my English is good enough to be understood.
