    Power Engine Vs Powered Loudspeaker

    Well I´m having some trouble with my pod right now but I´ll share my first toughts on the PE 60: First I´ll say that the reason for buying this "amp" is to monitor myself on stage while going direct to PA from the Pod HD. 1-This hing is LOUDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD. On my house I cant go past 9 o'clock on the PE + 12 o'clock on the Pod without unleashing my wife´s rage. Gigs or band rehearsal with crazy drummer? No problem. 2- This is not FRFR. This will not reproduce your headphone tone. 3- You can use the direct/studio output mode and get DECENT tones. Very different in feel and response of what you hear on your headphones... but usable. 4- You´ll need to use the Eq on the PE. I had to cut a lot on Bass and Mids to get a usable sound. I have a very crisp, rich and articulate clean sound that with all eq pots set on flat on the PE sound very dark and boomy. 5- You can get better tones out of the PE than the ones you've dialed to use for PA or headphone practice...so its a question of what are you using it for. If its only for monitoring (like me) you can get your already dialed tones to sound DECENT ...maybe Good nut not great. If youre planning on using it as your main "sound" generator you´ll have to dial some new tones and even check other output modes (combo power amp for example). I guess an speaker change to something less midrange oriented could be a good upgrade... however I´m not sure of this because the guitar itself is very midrange oriented. Is this a HUGE and ENORMOUS improvement from the tone i was getting of my tube amp fx return? NO. But this thing is light and my 35 years old back would appreciate it. As a matter of fact i´m getting a good stereo sound with the PE and my amp.... not that I´m planning bringing both to rehearsal/gigs but is nice to jam at home. Conclusion: I´m kinda disappointed. I was hoping more "transparency".

    Weird Problem With Hd500

    Thanks NucleusX! I was more fluent but lost practice on the language. Global reseting? so i install the new firmware and tell monkey that overdrive my patches is correct?

    Weird Problem With Hd500

    I recorded this with my phone... So what you hear is me pressing the fs and changing to another bank... Is my clean tone but in that moment it didn't reproduce the error

    Weird Problem With Hd500

    'output' Mode

    i dont need to switch them.... but it would be great if i could send a"studio/direct" signal to PA while sending a combo power amp to my amps fx loop to monitor on stage.

    'output' Mode

    this is one thing I think a lot of users will apreciate. Be able to set xlr to direct mode while 1/4 are set compo power amp... or any other. I´ve believe i´ve read that teh hd300 can do this... that makes no sense to me being the hd500 the top of the line.

    Power Engine Vs Powered Loudspeaker

    thanks a lot! I know what you mean: - There will be days when your ears are tired, or your brain or whatever else and they won't sound good to you that day. DON'T PANIC. Come back the very next day and they will sound great. Same thing always happens to me even in my analog tube rig. I've even had what I thought was GREAT tone all saved and ready, only to come back the very next day and turn it on and say "Holy crap! What was I thinking" it sounded so bad. my every other practice nightmare

    Power Engine Vs Powered Loudspeaker

    anyone knows of good starting point patches on customtone for use with the power engine 60? i guess theres a lot of users that have the hd500/pe60 rig and want to know if theres any patches already adjusted for it. thanks

    Hd500x First Gig!

    thanks for your answer. I´m looking this powered monitor: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/electro-voice-zlx-12p-12-2-way-powered-loudspeaker I guess i just have to plug my pod (via 1/4 or xlr) on it and it will work right? does the pod have the capacity of "driving" this speaker?

    Hd500x First Gig!

    sorry for making my question on this forum, but i got a doubt: i plan on running my pod hd direct to pa and use my marshall combo for monitoring purposes. It is possible to send my signal via the xlr to pa on studio/direct and at the same time feed my amps fx loop return on combo power amp mode?

    Problema De Volumen De Salida En Pod Hd 500

    es imposible que tenga mas salida la guitarra sola que el pod. como es el sonido por los auriculares

    I Just Discovered The Value Of Eq..

    super important for final shaping. Its a shame that thes pod eq are so Anti-Intuitive
  20. Has anyone experienced this? I´m really listening a tone change on a dual amp (plexi + plexi-pre) tone that i use for crunch... when i add the vol/pan block to be able of using it the tone it´s effected and change (for bad, even been subtle) is this normal? are my ears playing a trick on me?

    Tone Changes When Adding Vol/pan Block

    i use it on the end... just to mute my guitar between songs... but i feel it doesn´t matter if i placed it before or after

    4cm Volume Issue

    hello, I´m using the 4cm on the series loop of a marshall JCM600 but when i bypass the pre-amp section (using some of the amp models on the hd500) i only get playable volume with the crunch channel selected... on the clean channel volume is super low and thin. This obviusly doesnt occur when I´m using the pre-amp of my amp... both channels are usable with the effects i need. is this normal? what has to do the channel selected if i´m in the fx loop? I´m missing something here...

    4cm Volume Issue

    thanks for that complete response! I´ll try what you suggested. My main doubt is why the hell do I need to be in the crunch channel to use the HD as main pre amp... i mean, i´m not even using the fx loop block. What have to do the channel of the amp with the series fx loop?
