  1. I changed the "Mix" parameter on the FX Loop block from 100% to 50% and now it's coming out at regular volume through both the "Main Out/Left" to mixer the and "FX Send" to amp. Thanks again olerabbit!
  2. cristt, that makes perfect sense. I'm new to live sound so wasn't exactly sure how that would need to be setup on the mixer, thanks! olerabbit, thank you for the reply! I was just testing using the Amp Out and noticed that it was sending the amp model into the bass amp preamp and "double amp"ing as you said. My bass amp does not have an FX loops, so I activated the FX Loop block (before the amp and cab models) and connected the FX Send into the bass amp input, so now it is not sending the amp model into the bass amp preamp. However, now there is no sound coming out when I test the Main Out/Left into the bass amp (since mixer is not at my house). I've looked through settings but wasn't able to fix it. Any ideas??
  3. Bottom-line: Can I use a single TRS to XLR cable from the "Main Out L/Mono" to mixer? Or do I have to use two cables for L and R? Full Story: I've had issues with my band's mixer, but I think it's bc the XLR out on my bass amp is line level and the mixer channel happened to be mic level (and not switchable for line level) so it would clip almost immediately. I just got a POD Go and would like to know if the below steps are correct/would work: 1) Change global setting for "Main Out Level" to "Instrument". Change "Amp Out Source" to "Pre Cab/IR". 2) Create patch with pedals and amp/cab sim on. 3) Plug instrument cable from "Amp Out" into front of bass amp. 4) Plug 1/4" TRS to XLR male cable from "Main Out L/Mono" into Mixer. I've attached a photo for reference, I'm plugged into channel 7/8, which only has one XLR slot. If I'm able to use just the one TRS to XLR in the mono slot, the patch with amp/cab sim will go through the mixer/PA and the amp will get pre cab/IR signal. But if I need two cables, then I'd need two XLR slots in my mixer channel? Or would I use two channels in the mixer?
  4. I appreciate the extremely detailed response! As with most things musical, I guess it boils down to "if it sounds good, it is good." I'll definitely keep your cd/mp3 baseline idea in mind when setting levels and creating patches. If I understand correctly, I need to figure out the comfortable volume using mp3 with headphones. Then I set my master to where the guitar matches the mp3 when both are coming out of the amp. Keep master at that value, then tweak future/other patches to maintain proper volumes (depending on the needs of whatever I'm playing).
  5. Hello, I've got a bass guitar, POD HD500X, and GK MB210-II (no fx loop, will be delivered next week). Below is what I think I should put the settings and/or questions about creating patches when using the HD500X for effects only (no amp modeling). If anyone could say if these are right/wrong or provide insight, I'd appreciate it! 1) Output mode: Combo Front 2) Set 1/4" out switch to "AMP" 3) Make sure no amp model is selected; amp is set to "OFF". 4) Master knob all the way up. 5) Does it matter where the amp block is located in the chain? I know it's off, but there's still a place for the block. 6) Should the mixer always be the last block in the chain? 7) Any other settings that I need to check?
  6. I appreciate you taking the time to discuss my particular situation/amp! So it looks like the best options are: 1) POD without amp/cab sim into Rumble. Then Rumble XLR out to PA. In this case, the output mode would be set to "Combo Front". This would use the Rumble pre and power amps. Any adjustment to volume would affect the PA. 2) POD with amp model PRE and no cab model selected. Then POD XLR out to PA. In this case, the output mode would be set to "Combo Pwr Amp". I could adjust volume without affecting the PA. Since the POD XLR outs are Right and Left (neither are mono), I'd have to pan the mixer to center? Or would I pan all the way to Right (if using the Right output jack)? I think I'm getting closer to understanding this stuff haha.
  7. Sorry I wasn't clear in the original post. I would be creating patches that do not have amp/cab models, and would only use these patches when connected to the Fender Rumble. Wouldn't this be true even if I went straight from bass guitar to the Rumble? At that point, it's up to the sound guy? I'm very new to live sound, so don't have any experience in the area.
  8. I'm trying to get my bass guitar setup for live use. I've got a POD HD500X and am planning to get a Fender Rumble 500 to use as a stage monitor. Am I able to turn off the amp/cab sims and use the POD for effects only? My thought is that I could then use the XLR out from the Rumble to go to FOH/PA. Not sure what I'd need to select on the 1/4" out switch and the output setting in the menu. I'd like to use pitch shift (so I don't have to bring extra guitars or re-tune as often) along with some compression and maybe a bit of distortion, reverb/delay. Any other aspects that I've overlooked??
