    Pod HD and EMG

    Thx for the answer I was very close to string and with distortion everything seems overboosted Tried away for string and yes it' s more grainy , dynamics and shining I've never noticed this with a real amp... unless the muddy sound :D

    Pod HD and EMG

    Dear all , i use POD HD PRO with EMG 85/81 pickup for high gain stuff Did you noticed that EMG pickup height should be lowered to keep tone clarity and "air" using with amp sim ? br
  3. Compare input direct in preamp and by the way combo, and inputing to pod plugged in power amp.... Line should be correct setup, and i've found that 3/4 master volume on pod leads to preamp output equivalent...
  4. so i've received my mooer radar..... and definetly this kills !!! Before buying this gear i was pretty convinced, with experimentation, that Cab sim in high gain stuff was clearly a weakness of pod hd Tests with Mooer radar proved it, with default IR everything sits in a mix without excessive tweaking , and sound find some feeling, expressivity.... i'll try and make soundclips comparing both
  5. And do you confirm it's like night and day ??? ;) From my experiment , using wathever good cab sim , avoid the harsh thing you find in almmost every cab when doing high gain stuff Even boominess and bass is way more controlled. Global result for me was a really naturrally sound
  6. Hi to me yes as pod handle two commands in the same time( swith on + off.....) Using bypass volume control, plus volume pedal to morph sound could help
  7. Hi I've noticed this behaviour, personnaly i'm not sure it's possible to modify Pod edit seems to take precedence over stored preset until you switch off pod, an edit mode..
  8. Your usage will be the driver Direct in a power FRFR speaker will be good for a pure guitar rig With a mixer + amp+ passive speaker or mixer with actie speaker, could be great for a whole ampless band, maybe too much gear to replace only a guiter amp
  9. Hi I'll do for mooer radar as i believe cab sim is the weakness of pod Tried putting my audio interfaces in pod fx loop , with IR and yes this does the job , really really good ;) You 'll have only one cab sim unless you use a midi capable unit that can receive program change message when changing preset. But here price will increase, Torpedo cab might have midi implementation (not sure), torpedo live and... but budget reaches 800bucks
  10. I keep on bypassing every block, to make sure it doesn't amplify too much or decrease the signal Blank patch is great to find unity, in a tube amp i found 3/4 Master is the sweep spot, equivalent to guitar plugged directly in the amp
  11. Haha i'm about to move on this stuff :D Plug in FX loop of the poD, How do you like it , once again :) , this is really important. I'm struggling for years now with pod and keep on having the feel that my sound sounds need to but tweaked. It 's a all time long work... so recently i've made a try plugin my audio interface in and out in pod fx loop and using IR, cause i was convinced Cab sim it's the most important weakness of the pod. Result is really impressive with IR, a real organic sound like Axe .... is possible. Do you confirm ?
  12. You can use expression pedal to control delay mix You can have a preset saved with delay off, so activate the delay when needed in the preset, and press the preset button (ABDC) to recall the preset with delay off (as saved) Should do the trick
  13. I'd like to add my thought on this (and the video) This is a complete non sense, if Tech 21 thing is presented as an FRFR system, micing this setup is absolute bul******t If pod is studio direct with cab sim (them mic sim) , what's the needs to remic a virtual mic ???????????? Lot of demonstration use the remicking thing , despite this FRFR is just a monitoring for player. Also in this way i believe now that using FRFR as a live amplification system is weak as this will simulate a loud micked amp, not a live amp, that 's a bit different
