  1. Heres an image of the setup, it seems to be working okay but I have a feeling the initial sound would be taking in the dry signal of path B and adding it to the overall tone wouldn't it? In reaper I just have to set the output to mono ( right ) on master which seems to be working im just unsure if there is anything layering.. Also would I be correct in placing a +6dB gain boost on path A to compensate for the signal loss in the FX send of the pod? Or would it be 12dB? Or am I supposed to put a EQ with a gain boost before the FX loop instead of the master? Thanks
  2. So i can mute one and listen to the AUX?
  3. Yes I understand that but I thought an Auxiliary input would be separate and be able to be monitored separate
  4. Hey guys just a quick question, I have my POD HD500X set up in the 4cm method using my Bugera G5 Infinium as a tube pre-amp. What im trying to do is monitor my sound through my PC using USB from the Pod HD, But im only hearing the pre-amp and effects and not the power amp stage of the Bugera, So what im wondering is if i run the Headphone output from the Bugera (It has 1x12 or 4x12 cab simulation built into the headphone output) back into the pedal somehow - am I able to monitor that? I've tried going from the headphone on the bugera into the AUX of the HD500X but can't seem to get that working. Would it work if I run it from the headphone jack of the amp into an XLR mic input on the HD500X and monitor that through USB? Basically I just want to be able to hear the Headphone output of the Amplifier through my computer speakers without having to plug the speakers into the amp itself, and monitor that output through USB from the Pod instead. Any help much appreciated thank you !
  5. Sweet as, I have read that I should use a 12dB boost when using a studio eq, What would I boost if I was using the mixer faders? and would I have to mute the B channel?
  6. Thanks man but I still need a little more detail than that please, Instead of placing the mixer before the FX loop am I able to just increase the gain on the send/return controls via the fx loop insert instead? My amp does not have a master volume but it does have a power attenuator (0.1, 1 & 5W) so im assuming this will be the overall final stage? And once I have chosen one then the pedals master volume would be the overall volume control right? Also what would happen if I were to place the mixer faders before the fx loop wouldn't the post fx be affected by this?
  7. Hey everyone I just had a few questions regarding the setup of my HD500X through the 4CM method, I have read a few tutorials and stuff but these questions are more related to my amp specificly. I am using the HD500X in 'stomp box mode' purely for effects and not amp sims / cabs. Im using my real tube amp for a pre-amp via FX send/return. I have a Class A Bugera Infinium G5 5W Tube amp & 1X12 Cab. I have the cables set up correctly, I have the 1/4 out set to 'line' and the fx loop set to 'stomp' On the back of my amp I have the loop set to -10dB instead of +4dB. In the pedal I have it set to combo pwr amp, Guitar Z = 3.5, and Input 1 as Guitar and Input 2 as Variax (From tutorial) I have the a studio eq insert before my FX loop insert with a '+12dB' gain boost to compensate for the level difference (From tutorial) In the mixer at the end of the chain I have it set to Volume A = -8dB and panned to center, Volume B = Mute. (From tutorial) First of all is all of this correct? If so the couple of questions I have is; 1: Do I need to use a studio EQ for the gain boost before the FX loop or is there another way to do it without taking up an insert? (Via mixer maybe?) - Because I also read another tutorial where someone did it through the mixer and didn't use an EQ to boost anything. Or what about the send and return gain levels on the FX loop insert itself? 2: My amplifier has a power attenuator which lets me select between 0.1W, 1W and 5W. Would this be the absolute final stage in the chain? Or would it be the master volume on the pedal itself? Basically I just want to know what actually adjusts the overall master volume of everything. And also if the power attenuator on the amp actually affects the input to the HD500X at all or if it purely makes the power amp section of the amplifier quieter/louder and doesn't affect the preamp? 3: How do I go about setting the volume levels on my clean channel and distortion channel to suit the input of the HD500X? Any help would be much appreciated even if it's just advice on how to test these theory's to get the correct volume & signal levels across the chain would be awesome. Thank you, Michael.
