    Test your ears! PodXT or Roland COSM? New Dec. 27th!

  3. I put 2 songs in my music website: "Something For Nothing" is the song on top, and "They Want to Believe" is the next song down. One song uses Roland COSM amp models on guitar, and the other song uses PODXT amp models. Can you tell which is which? Please tell me how you like the music and how it can be improved.

  5. I have never owned a guitar amp in my life, though I have spent a lot of time on the PodXT forum, years ago, when the PodXT probably had the best amp models you could buy. I always listen to my amp modeling through headphones. Some people played through a very clean amp, like a keyboard amp, because it doesn't color the sound much. If you are having distorted amp sounds on your Pod, and you put them through a distorted real guitar amp, that is equivalent to: guitar>distorted Marshall amp>distorted Marshall amp (well maybe that is equivalent to jumping the amp though). How many people would do that? If you play it through a very clean amp, it will probably sound pretty similar to how it sounds on headphones. I don't know if they are in business anymore, but there was some company that made a real clean guitar amp, made to work with guitar amp modelers like the PodXT. I have never tried one. Before I bought a keyboard amp (when I was in a band), I played synths through a guitar amp, and it sounded pretty crappy. Maybe this thread will help:

    Input Levels for Helix Native: Hi-Z or not?

    I didn't know about the automated EQ, that could be useful in the future. Since I use lots of synth plug-ins, and very often, most everything can be automated, though you don't have to assign a "knob" to be automated on the synth plug-ins. It will take me some time to get more speedy with assigning knobs to be automated in Helix Native.
  7. Yamaha may not have the highest prestige, but I think they make very good guitars and basses for the money, in my experience. I looked up a photo of your guitar, and looks pretty cool to me. I have seen much more gaudy guitars than that, such as this:

    Input Levels for Helix Native: Hi-Z or not?

    soundog, Thank you for replying! Yeah, I'm really into effects. I probably won't go public with the song for years (I never go public with a song unless I have a formal U.S. copyright since I found out I was going to get played on the Radio BBC, and it's much cheaper to copyright a bunch of songs at once, instead of one at a time), but I'm almost done with a song with lead guitar with the Harmony Delay effect, Particle Reverb, and Whammy effect that I was pleased with. I tried a real Digitech Whammy pedal years ago, but had a hard time controlling the pitch in a nice fashion, so I never bought one. In Cubase, I can fine-tune the pitch changes with the automated tweaking function on Helix Native (I rarely play live anymore).

    Input Levels for Helix Native: Hi-Z or not?

    I bought Helix Native a few days ago since it went on sale (yay!). I have since recorded some guitar, and experimented some more with the Hi-Z input being on or off. What I recorded lately sounds better with the Hi-Z on, as Line 6 recommends. I wonder if it has to do with the particular preset or not. Since I am using this software more, I am liking it more and more, and learning how to use it better. I just figured out how to do the automated tweaking today BTW.

    OK, here are the answers: 'Everything You Do Effects Tomorrow' has Roland COSM guitar amp models. 'Attack of the Zombies!' has all PodXT guitar amp models, and zombie approved.
  11. I like the 80's sound, and that just seems to come out of me naturally; for better or for worse. For me the 70's and the 80's were the best decades for music, but that might have something to do with my age. There might be 'tone-suck' in 'Everything You Do Effects Tomorrow', but it is Roland COSM. 'Attack of the Zombies!' is all PodXT, and zombie approved. Thank you for listening and replying! The only electric guitar I have ever owned is a 1986 Yamaha SBG1300TS (kind of a Gibson copy). And I'm into synths, which often sound 80's.
