POD HD Desktop mixer with dualtone preset
by zzii on 2013-03-14 03:36:38

I would like to set dualtone preset and send each different tone to one mono POD output (e.g. left output for PA and right output for guitar power amp).  But if I set on POD mixer for Path A 100% pan L and for Path B 100% pan R, there's still Path A sound on right output and Path B sound on left output. What's wrong and why it isn't works ?

to get two completely separate paths you must not put any mono fx or amp in pre split position..

Thanks for advice, it seems be logical. Well, so I removed all FX from pre split position and now I have amp with cab simulation and then reverb in path A and also amp (the same as in path A but with cab simulation off) and then reverb again (I also tried change it for chorus to better hear the difference) in path B and then mixer, anything else after post split position. Something changed but it's still strange - if there's 100% PAN L  for path A and 100% PAN R for path B, there's still sound of amp from path B on L output, I can hear change if I switch off amp in path B or decreasing mixer level for path B. But - what's OK there isn't any reverb or other FX sound from path B on L output. I don't understand it.

did you put any mono fx after the mixer block?..

If you are doing true dual tone with separate paths, then you need to set input 2=Same...One thing to keep in mind is that Path A and Path B are actually stereo, hence the pan controls...When you run a dual tone input 1 feeds path A and input 2 feeds path B...Since there are only 2 outputs, the paths are summed together...Not sure if this will help ot not, but it seem like this might be the issue you are facing at the moment..

some fx are mono wet stereo dry.  So as you set the mix closer to 100% the sound becomes more and more mono.  At 0% you retain complete stereo separation.

Where is this in the manuals? I see they only mention that 0% is completely dry and 100% completely wet...

Thanks for your advices. All was OK in my setup, no FX in pre split and after mixer and at last I found that problem is that POD is too much clever   When I tried my preset, I haven't stereo amp and so I connect only L channel output to my mono acoustic amp input. POD recognizes it and in this case send both path A and path B  sounds to only one connected mono output - it's right  to don't miss one path sound. If  I connect jack also in R output, POD recognizes it again and then send only path A to L output and only path B to R output exactly according to preset setup !
