  1. Cap? Cab? Did you forget a Cab Sim/IR going FRFr? Or did you use a Cabsim while going into an amp? No matter what sounds like a typical case of: My Presets from home sound awful in my band. That's why you don't finish your live/rehearsel presets at home. You dial them in as far as you need to and then you show up an hour earlier to tweak the Bejeezus out of it. Bonus points if the rest of the band shows up an hour earlier, too. Then you rehearse some wellknown songs and tweak as needed after each song. Your sound will thank you.
  2. Looks KILLER! NICE! I dig PeterHamm's Pedalboard, too. Nice and Clean. The problem I had with using pedals BEFORE the Hd500 was always that I wanted to use the Pod's WahWah and I don't like the wah AFTER effects. Especially ODs and DISTs. I had an AMT P2 (5150 in a box) in the Loop but it didnt do well. I used it as amp model (by the time the HD500 had no 5150) and had it always on. So that the Loop itself made the on and off on the Pedal (you get what I mean?). Sadly in my case even when the Loop was OFF, but IN the whole Signal chain, there was humming and buzzing. Without loop everything was silent. So I had to rework that and since then I am not using pedals. I might look into a Chorus pedal again to put inbetween as I dont like the HD500 Chorus. A few months ago I experimented with a Harley Benton super Chorus pedal (Boss Knock Off i guess) and it sounded amazing. Unfortunatelly I was to lazy to build a whole pedalboard just for that anf also sold the pedal. Now seeing the Mooer pedals and their tiny space I guess I have to go back to the (pedalboard) planning board!
  3. Hey meambobbo, maybe you should contact Mark Knopfler that you finally nailed/found his long forgotten tone he searched since 1985 ;) Great work there! Were you ever in the business of making patches by request? If yes, do you still? If no, why not? Start it! ;) I think every new package with the HD500X should have come with a printed out guide of yours! The REAL user manual.
  4. I think I have a new fav amp. I fooled around with the 'ol J45 Brt. I have to say: WIth the Tube Driver in front it really roars. I have made an Dual Amp Patch based on yesterdays thread about the 5150 comparison. I tried the Tread 4x12 along with the SM57 on axis left and the 421 right. A rather obscure idea, but the modern Tread Cab compliments the rather bassy and Vintage sounding J45. Can someone tell me if it's any good, or just to my ears? http://line6.com/customtone/tone/1540110/
  5. Which one are you meaning here? The Greenback one? That's one of my favourites, too. No matter what I do I always come back to the 'ol JCM800 + T75 Combo. Don't know why. Maybe because my first "real" amp was a 100watts JCM800 clone. + For Cleans 90% of the time the Fender "Double". Because I am lazy as lollipop, I don't give a F*** about my Clean tone and it's always the first in the list. Okay, It's also quite clean but has a bit of "filth" when you use higher output PUs (I'm using SD Sh5 and Sh4 and EMG85s). It does give a good Crunch sound, too, when bundled with a Tubescreamer.
  6. Maybe the Boost Comp in stock settings. It boosts and fattens the amp a little bit, bit that's not bad in most cases (sure, I wouldn't use it for super clean) For super clean use the tube comp. Nice and warm sound.
  7. Also lower the damn cabinet deep edit things to 0 (res, thump, etc). I am not angry to you, just to that darn cab edits. They lollipop up your sound. I promise. Have fun with ur new gear! *thumbsup*
  8. Then there are things like the EHX Magnum 44 power amp. Costs roughly 120 €. Sounds great. Used it live. Everyone was amazed.
  9. Is the Trio running running in front of the Pod or in the FX Loop? Then yes. Is it running AFTER the Pod: Nope, I don't think so. This is the scenario in which the Pod is your Interface. IIRC it only transmits everything in its signal path (up to your last block).
  10. Well, isn't that exactly what the "Preset"-Mode in the PodHD does? Habe you tried it? If not, just long press "VIEW" and switch through the panels until the option comes on screen (Should already be the 1st or 2nd screen)
  11. You clearly went off-topic there. But there's nothing to add to your comment. My next band will be on IEM, too. Doesn't matter how small or shallow the room is. I am fed up with lollipop on stage sound.
  12. Hm.. that makes me think. I never had such problems. I played the Pod numerous times live, and even more so in rehearsals. Nobody ever said something. Well, sometimes words of praise for the good sound. But one thing for sure: The presence of an amp and a real cab on stage gives a whole different "feeling". Some people I know can't play with their guitar on the monitors. (InEars not included). I, on the other hand, hate to have a cab in the back. Why do I need to have a speaker blasting in my arse? I always ask for the sound guy to give me the majority on my monitors. Nice added effect: When you play thd "foot on the monitor"-solo, you get everything right in the face. I love it. My advice is to give your bandmates some time. Maybe really give them more of you on the monitors. If that doesn't work, let them check what the crowd hears at a gig. Place them in front of the PA and they will hear that everything is "there". Otherwise, if nothing helps, get a) InEar monitors, that would really solve everything (I guess. No promise) or b) play the box that you use in practices at a gig, simultaniously while going to the front board or c) Bite the bullet and get the ol' big amp back on stage. Band performance > Everything else. Nothing on earth can really come up to the ROOAAR that a real speaker makes, but I for example don't need it. Everything that can lower the volume on stage for me is a heavenly gift. If only the drummer could play quieter...
  13. Pod HD 500 from September 2011 here. Never had any problems. All switches work, all in and outputs work. Only the 4 way pad is a bit "moody" but still works in all 4 directions. It seems you are having a bad (technology) luck year :-/
  14. My rig Sorry for the 90° turn. I don't know how to use this here correctly. I shot the pic vertically to get the Headphones into. On my phone it looked alright... So: The HD500, going into EH Magnum 44 and a 1x12 noName Cab from Harley Benton. The Headphones are basically always plugged in for playing silent. I experimented with some of the Wah that are built in. But also have my big old heavy nearly lollipoped up Dunlop Crybaby in front of everything. But I don't know. I think it adds some kind of buzzing to the whole sound.
  15. Nice trick there! I am currently using an external Wah, too. But I need to try this. I love automatic Wahs. Miss my old Ibanez Weeping Demon...
