  1. Thanks for your answers guys :) He he... i told friends about this cool sound and that it kind of sound like someone playing a guitar solo on a keyboard. Wooops.... it really was a keyboard.
  2. Hello, Does anyone know how to create this sound? It's such a cool strange sound. I can hear a clear use of wah-wah but there seem to be much more going on. :unsure: I'm new to the HD500X and creating sounds. It's the first solo part, but even the second solo part has a very nice sound. Same sound again...
  3. @cruisinon2 Lol... best comparison :P You're right the JMP-1 had one sound (kind of) and couldn't be more than that. But i remembered it to at least sound good right into the mixer/porta. I had expected the POD to sound better right out of the box even without an external amp/speaker. Maybe i just have to deal with it and dig into settings and try learn it. I thinking i should get a Line 6 DT25 112 Combo, it suppose to have some silent mode for late apartment playing. I guess the sound will get more real then. Cheers
  4. Thanks for the replies guys! Last time i owned guitar gear was back in 1994 and i then used a Marshall JMP-1 which was connected right into the mixer and porta studio. It sounded very good, had a very natural sound from clean to full dist. I really had expected things to have come much further by now in that area. OK i know i'm a total newbie at the POD but i really thought it should sound at least OK, and not require massive tweaking to sound ok.
  5. Hello, I'm absolutely new to the POD HD500X and Variax JTV69s. No matter if i plug the guitar in with the Variax Digital Input (VDI) or the 1/4" guitar Input and listen in headphones from the POD it sounds really bad. All dist sounds are razor sharp digitally and unpleasant and not very much difference when switching sounds either, only more or less dist and bass/treble. I'm not 100% sure if my output is Studio/Direct (have to check that tonight) but everything is default as i i just bought the POD. Maybe i should change the JTV69s to a regular JTV69 or 89 instead? I tried connecting it to computer with USB and it sounded just as bad and i also got 1/2 sec delay on everything (headphones in the POD). Would it be better to connect the POD analogue out to an external soundcard like the PreSonus Audiobox iTwo or Scarlett 2i2 and use external monitors for listening? I'm living in an apartment so i can't use a real amp/speaker. Thanks
