  1. I have the same issue with the HD500X tuner, I have a BOSS TU-12EX and a Korg DTR-2 tuner, the Boss and Korg are dead on to each other, when i use the onboard tunner it is off #, yes the onboard pod is set to 440HZ, I also tune to B, C#, and D, with the same issue.
  2. What effect would it have if you put the mixer at the front of the signal chain
  3. Did you ever get the 4CM method to work before the head phone issue. Make sure you have added the FX block to your signal chain. plug your guitar into Guitar Input on POD, connect FX send to your amp input, connect your amp's preamp out to POD's FX Return (Left/mono), connect POD's 1/4" Out (Left/mono) to your amp's power amp in
  4. Before I had the EQ going through the FX loop of my amp, and the distortion was connected to the the front input of my amp with the POD after it, I want to be able to have effects post and pre amp ablity now, so I am trying to setup the 4cm method, I have it working, I am just not sure where to add the eq and distortion now
  5. Ok I am running the 4cm setup 1. I have a boss mt-2 that i want to use for my distortion pedal, where would I add it into the single chain, 2. where would i add an external rack eq also in the single chain
  6. I use my distortion first in the single chain, set your first effects block to FX, you will need two patch cables to go from FX send to FX return on the pod with your pedal in the chain, and set the switch on the back of the pod to stomp.
  7. I wouldnt call it tone suck but some unwanted tones, remember the POD is an amp modeler your amp will color the tone, the POD is not a plug and play device when used direct to the front of a amp. Output set to combo amp front switch set to amp POD left 1/4 out to eq input ART HD-15 EQ eq output to front of amp Marshall MG100DFX
  8. 1X12 solid state, very bass-heavy, the amp would just rumble playing any drop tuning, standard tuning wasn't as bad. I play a lot of Drop C# and B
  9. I have run it direct to the FX return, but there was so much bottom end I could not dial/eq it out with the POD's eq's, I could setup good tones at low volume but as soon as I turned it up the boom and fizz came back, I am using the EQ's left channel through the FX loop and the EQ's right channel is direct to the front of the amp, with the POD direct to the right channel input, I can switch between the FX loop mix or direct to the front of the amp, I am having better results not using the FX loop. With the 15 bands of eq and with the low cut pass and high cut pass filters it knocks out the unwanted fizz and boom.
  10. After adding the ART HD-15 EQ I have been able to cut out a lot of the unwanted tones and create the best tone i have tried so far using the solo-100 clean amp model direct to the front of my Marshall MG100DFX. Adding the EQ opened up a new world with the POD. POD HD 500X direct to EQ then direct to front of the amp http://artproaudio.com/downloads/owners_manuals/om_hd15.pdf
  11. Running the POD direct to an amp or the FX loop of the amp has such a different tone effect then running it into to a monitor or PC making it a a lot harder to dial in the tone. It would be nice to have a forum just based on running the POD direct to your amp or FX loop of your amp to see what kind of results others are getting by just using a TUBE AMP or SOLID STATE AMP I added have added a ART HD-15 EQ to the FX loop of my amp and run the POD direct into the front of my Marshall
  12. FX return power amp only, no 4cm.
  13. What parameters within the amps and cab are you adjusting.
  14. There are several post that explain EQ settings, what to cut what to boost how to remove fizz and so on, having a good ear is key, my ears are not so good anymore, years of loud music have taken a toll on my ears, I like to see the actual settings that the POD HD500X users are using for different tones, Metal, Blues, Jazz, Clean, Rock, I find it easier to dial in the settings then listen to the tone and compare for a starting point. I run my POD500X direct to the FX loop on the AMP. Tone Metal, Blues, Rock, Clean EQ Type EQ All/Settings Location of EQ
  15. Nice, thank you, will come in handy
