  1. wow...didn’t realize how old this post was! Lol Hopefully you’ve learned by now! Haha
  2. I’ll try and respond more this later...at work now and not much time. but first off (and this is pure preference from experience), I would ditch studio one and use something else. Even garage band! I’ve had nothing but problems with presonus software crashing my systems. Anyway... Not sure what you are using for your AI, but if it is a mixer or anything else with a built in preamp, you’re going to have to do a lot of tweaking to get a good direct sound. The pro x has an amazing cabinet emulator and direct recording is incredibly easy. i use a presonus usb audio interface straight to my MacBook that works great and has very little latency (just don’t use the software! lol). From there, you should be getting whatever tone you are dialing in on your pro x. Monitor from the MacBook outs for best overall tone and mix. A lot of the patches on the pro x can be very bassy, so you might want to run a high pass on it to compensate (There’s a good little ‘quick’ article on low/high pass filtering here: https://theproaudiofiles.com/audio-pass-filters/ ). Try and not rely on headphones too much when mixing as it is not going to be a true mix and you can hear a LOT more in the headphones. Use your monitors and watch your peaks. I like to normalize to about 85%, but a lot of people frown on normalizing. Trust your ear! If it sounds good to you and you can hear everything...you’re probably pretty close or even right on! Keep an eye on frequencies as well. A bass drum and a bass guitar share similar frequencies, so you’ll want to keep them away from each other by panning. Vocals and keys are similar, guitar and everything else shares similar frequencies! Lol I’m no master recording engineer, but I’ve been doing it for 30+ years and have a pretty good idea on what works and what doesn’t. Trial and error is the best tool for figuring out how this stuff works. When I was learning, I didn’t have the internet to rely on for resources, so figuring out what works by my mistakes was huge. Again, I’ll try and post more later. I don’t have a LOT to share, but hopefully enough to get you started.
  3. Agreed with a lot of the comments...you're preamping a preamp, Need to find a slave in setting so it bypasses the preamp and only utilizes the power amp. Probably been said 100 times up ^^^ there, but wasn't reading every post! lol Hope you get it figured out! It's frustrating as hell when it all goes haywire! I have the Spider IV HD150 which I LOVE and recently picked up the POD HD Pro X and was almost to the point of taking the POD back cause I couldn't figure out a knob turn which made my pedal work! lol

    Foot switch not doing the correct opperation.

    I was just having a similar issue. The button layouts are strange and don't seem to quite match up to where they are. Make sure your fx are assigned to the right button by pressing and holding the Enter button. Then make sure it is set to ABCD like you said it was. That was my biggest problem. Had some tutorials telling me I need to set it to FS1-8 and my pedal wasn't working at all! And same thing as well...FS1 seems to be a dead button and I can't find the correct assignment to utilize it. Not sure if that will help, but maybe somewhere to start? I just got the POD HD Pro X and am still figuring the thing out! Spent the last 2 days on the &^%$ button assignments! lol Also, make sure it is unplugged from your computer when you assign to ABCD or it won't work either, Touchy little device!

    FBV3 not working after edit

    I remember watching a vid and them telling me to go and change that to FS5-8 for some reason that I can't remember. Something to do with setting up effects and assigning them to a button. However, yeah I don't get it either how it affects it globally.I was having to press the bank up or down and then press the A-D button to change the patch, and even then they were out of whack. The POD HD Pro X Edit software is pretty groovy...but you do have to watch what you are doing on there or you can mess things up pretty easily by clicking a button or turning the wrong knob! I actually went into the FBV Editor software and tried manually assigning each button on the thing, but onec you plug it in to the POD, all that becomes null and void and it responds to your POD rather than the internal software. Weird...

    OMG! Yeah I was just about to do that! Watched a video on YouTube about assigning foot-switches to the effects and the foot-switch setting you change from ABCD to FS5-8 was set to FS5-8. Changed it to ABCD and it worked fine! MAN!! 2 days messing with this thing and just as I thought...was a simple turn of a knob! lol Thanks all for your suggestions! I appreciate it!

    Yeah, I thought of that and unplugged the USB, powered off the POD and turned it back on and it seems like it has the same problem. I reset all the global settings by pressing the left navigation while turning it on and it worked fine! It wasn't until I created a patch that it starts. Wondering if I'm missing something in the settings. Thanks
  8. I placed this in the POD forum, but then saw this forum and may be better suited here. Pasting below: This may have been addressed in here somewhere, but I couldn't find it. Just recently got the Pod HD Pro X with the FBV3 foot pedal. I've downloaded the edit tool and license manager and updates...yadda. When I first turned it on, the pedal did what it's supposed to...press the A-D and the patches change. Press the FS buttons and the fx turn on and off. I started creating my own patches in User 1 and after saving the patch, the pedal no longer works? The FX work turning on and off, but I cannot change from 1A to 1B so on. I'm sure there's probably some button I'm missing or step I'm missing, but all the reading and searching hasn't helped. Anyone have the answer to this? I know it can't be that difficult. Have tried the FBV3 on my HD150 and it works great! Tried my FBV MII on my Pod Pro and same issue. Thanks in advance!
