  1. Yes I have. So can I use the DT to model the pre amp? It looks like I can't....
  2. Hey guys. I'm having a bit of a volume issue that I'm looking to sort out. As we know, the Vox AC30 preamp on the POD is drastically more quiet that the full version. However, topology 3 on the DT (with no HD500 connected) can go very loud - as loud as all other topologies on the amp. My question is how/whether I can use the amp to model the AC30 preamp and simply use the HD500 for effects. It's just that the AC30 preamp on the POD is so damn quiet. By this logic, the Vox will be a lot louder, with my HD500 still connected and in use. Is it doable, or are we herding cats here? Thanks! Nick.

    A Few Questions Regarding Hd500 And Dt25

    Wow thanks for all the responses - I'll check out your dual patches :) I should be getting the DT either today or tomorrow so I'll see how it goes. Thanks!

    A Few Questions Regarding Hd500 And Dt25

    Ok, so from what I understand when the Pod is connected, the Pod is what emulates the preamp and it uses the DSP of the Pod? Why do you think modelling two amps is pointless? Is that just personal preference or does it actually sound bad out of, say, a DT25 combo amp? Cheers

    A Few Questions Regarding Hd500 And Dt25

    Thanks for that. So for what I understand, when the Pod and the DT are connected, the dsp usage from amp modelling comes from the DT, and not the Pod? So that means that, theoretically, an HD500 patch that was over the DSP limit of the Pod could work when connected to the DT, as the DT would be modelling the amp and not the Pod? Thanks again
  7. Hey guys, this is my first post in the forum. Right now I'm using a Gibson Les Paul with my HD500, using headphones. The sound is OK, but I'm looking to buy an amplifier. I'm considering buying a DT25 combo, but before I do, I have a couple questions. 1. Firstly, I have ran out of DSP a lot on my HD500, mainly because I use dual amp configurations. What I am wondering is if I can still use two amp paths with two different (pre) amps modelled on my HD500, and have the DT25 combo output both amps (both paths) in only one speaker (I will be using the combo amp). Another thing that I'd like to know in relation to this is whether or not using the HD500 in conjuncton with the DT25 will free up DSP. I heard that (since the 2.0 update), the DT25 models the pre amp instead of the HD500. Is this true? Will it model both of my pre amps, allowing DSP usage to drop on the HD500? 2. Secondly, I am wondering which cable to purhase to use with L6 link. I understand that Line 6 reccomend an AES/EBU type cable over everything else. However I also see that they recommend a Classic Series Microphone Cable by Planet Waves, which as far as I'm aware doesn't appear to be an AES/EBU type cable. I live in New Zealand, so I cannot purchase brands such as Mogami, in fact the only AES/EBU cable that is stocked in my local store is a HOSA AES/EBU cable. Would you reccoment this as a good cable? http://www.rockshop.co.nz/shop/recording/hosa-ebu003-aes-ebu-cable-3ft.html Also, I assume that 3ft is too short.... Thanks so much in advance, and any other tips in realtion to the DT25, such as upkeep and tone tricks will be greatly appreciated! I will be entirely new to valve amps. Nick.
