I got my HD400 2 weeks ago. I have been using and tweaking patches on STUDIO output mode since then and I use headphones for monitoring. I have tried recording and I am very satisfied with it. I tried plugging it in an amp today. As per the manual, I should be using the LIVE output mode. I connect a cable from the POD's 1/4" out to the amplifier;s input. Everytime I switch to LIVE (or even DUAL) the tone just goes really off. All the tone's body and character are gone. And it sounds dry and treblish. I tried ComboFrt, ComboAmp from setup.
I read some of these types of problems in forums but I can't get to find the right answers.
Is there a fix for this?
Should I be using the XLR out instead of the 1/4" out?
Should I be tweaking tones in LIVE mode instead of STUDIO?
Is there anything wrong with my POD having these issues?
