  1. Thanks guys. Yes the scarlet is set to instrument. I have the input gain knob on the scarlett turned all the way down. There is no clipping. Admittedly I have no idea what unity gain is, but my input gain is not too high. Does native have a global EQ like the hardware version? Also one thing I thought is, how can native have the same sound as the real helix when the hardware is unknown, and changing from one computer/interface to the next? Dosen't line 6 tout how the helix sounds so good because of all the special onboard chips, input signal processors specifically made for the helix etc etc etc? Anyway, I doubt that this current rig I have will perform anywhere near as good as a hardware based modeler like the axe ...... but I've been wrong before :P also one thing I should say is that I have never been able to get a good sound with any of the software based VSTs which could point the finger at the whole scarlett setup. Any more tips on checking to make sure I'm at unity gain would be appreciated. Thanks again everyone.
  2. Hi guys, I have been trying out native for a few days, and just can't get it to sound good. I've played with all the settings in each block, added a York Friedman IR, dual amps, dual cabs, added a EQ etc etc etc. It just sounds thin, muzzy, and lifeless no matter what I do. i can brighten it up a bit with an EQ but it still sounds just harsh and lifeless. I'm using the headphone jack on the Scarlett into my Sennheiser HD 650's. I'm starting to think maybe its my interface? its a Scarlett 6I6 2nd gen. I'm basically ready to throw in the towel and just get an axe FX. too much messing around with native to get anything....unless im doing something seriously wrong? any obvious things I should check? thanks in advance for any input.
  3. Hi guys, New pod go owner as of yesterday. Was able to dial in a pretty fun tone in about 10 min. just needed to crank up the presence and a few levels in the cab ir to get a pretty alive feel. exciting! So basically everywhere on the net you hear that the pod go cabs suck, and if you get aftermarket ones it really comes alive.... is this true? if it is true, can someone point me towards the best sounding cabs for the pod go? im looking for basically three sounds - high gain 80's lead , some rhythm metal and juicey fender clean type stuff. Thanks in advance.
