  1. Here's a quickie video I did comparing a Laney GH50L tube amp to the PODHD into a JCM900. The PODHD is only being used as a pre-amp into the FX return of the JCM900. It compares both amps in mono and dry, but at the end shows the PODHD/JCM900 in stereo with a little effects added. As you can hear, the stereo effect really beefs it up. I did my comparison against the Laney because I perform in a Sabbath Tribute band and Tony Iommi uses Laney amps. I wish I could use only the PODHD by itself but have never been completely happy with the hi gain tone I was looking for unless I hooked it into a tube amp and cab. I've heard recordings that sounded really good but I just couldn't get that sound any other way. Maybe the Helix will finally get me what I'm looking for and I can put all the heavy lifting behind me.
  2. I use actual dual amps. I use the PODHD as the pre-amp into the FX return of my amps. Which means I use the pre versions of the PODHD's amp only and no cab emulation. I also put a delay between the two amps of 20ms. If you'd like to see what I did here's the preset. www.ChildrenOfTheGraveBand.com/HiGainStereoPreAmp.hbe

    PODxt Upgrade

    Pianoguyy - my thoughts exactly. You hit it perfect. Too many times, when I was much younger, I wished someone had told me the same thing.

    PODxt Upgrade

    He's upgrading from a PODxt, not HD500.

    I would suggest keeping what you have and keep saving up money. The PODHD is a better unit than what you have but you could save up a little more money and get something current like the Line6 HX Stomp or POD Go that's a lot better.

    HD500 HELP

    Try to use USB 2.0 ports.

    I thought this was the forum dedicated to the PODHD series ?
  9. POD HD500/500x/HD/HD Pro: You must re-install the flash memory on the device to reset the unit back to factory settings. Check out this link for instructions http://line6.com/support/page/articles/_/effects/pod/pod-hd/video-tutorial-how-to-reset-the-pod-hd-series-r209
  10. Does it do this for all of your presets ? Or just the ones you created ?
  11. Sounds like one of the effects blocks could be overdriving too much or do you have your guitar inputs set to same or is Input 1 and Input 2 set differently ?
  12. Are all your USB ports USB 3 or are some USB 2 ports ?
  13. It doesn't matter if the strings are nylon or steel. All that matters is it has a pickup and can send a signal.
  14. Which DAWs are you using ? Some of them install a driver called ASIO4ALL.sys which doesn't work well with the PODs. The typical solution has been to remove the ASIO4ALL.sys driver and only use the driver from Line6.
  15. Just turn on the Tube Screamer, compressor and noise gate effect then plug the POD into the guitar input of your Dark Terror.
  16. Did you install a new of differant DAW ? If so then which one ?
  17. What types of tones are you most interested in doing ? What types of effects are you planning on using ? Just trying to see what you're trying to accomplish. The Dark Terror is a really good sounding amp for blues and high gain tones. IMO - a touch of reverb and delay with that amp and it sounds great.
  18. Did you install the ASIO4ALL.sys driver when you installed Reaper ? If you did then remove it and only use the driver from Line6.
  19. Look at the dates of the last post.
  20. You know I get sick and tired of whiny lollipop comments like this.
  21. If you're using WIndows 10 then set the bit depth in the Windows Sound Control Panel.
  22. You responded to a 2 year old post.
  23. The person you responded to posted this 5 years ago. Glad it was helpful but the person is probably not around.
