PodHD400 /acoustic settings from variax 700
by scottemcg on 2011-07-01 19:08:33

i have gone thru all the presets on my new Pod HD400 and i can't find any settings or models for just "pre amp" so i can use the acoustic instrument models on my variax 700 (banjo, sitar, acoustic guitar, dobro)-which i use very often for my work. i'm a full time musician and use line6 products for EVERYTHING. i can't believe line6 would come out with something that's not fully usable with one of their own guitars. can anybody tell me how/where to find a pre amp setting on the HD400 or a way i can use all the sounds of my variax?


thx! :-)

I don't use an amp at all - just an EQ with slight chorus or delay and some reverb. You have several EQs to choose from - test them out.

I would like to use a compressor too but with the HD300/400 you cannot use two FX from the same block (FX1) simultaneously.

I downloaded some HD500 acoustic tones and adapted them to the 400. Look in Customtone for one called Acoustic Air. There are others.

Hey scottemcg,

Thanks for the great advice silverhead. Are you sure you got it scottemcg?

You don't have to use a amp with every preset, especially when using an acoustic guitar. Silverhead had some great suggestions of just using some compression, EQ, and reverb.
