  1. I've read that channel 1 on the super champ x2 bypasses the modeling in the amp. If yours is the super champ x2 maybe you should set the pod to studio direct and input the pods 1/4" analog out into the amps channel 1. If not try to figure out how to get a clean patch on it and try the aforementioned. I'm not familiar with that particular amp I just searched a little and found this thread > http://www.strat-talk.com/threads/superchamp-x2-clean-channel-quick-question.197988/ . Read that thread for more ideas. Also > http://www.strat-talk.com/threads/champ-x2-thoughts-review.152568/ You could just try to set up the most transparent patch on your amp and do what I mentioned. This way you could try to set up the pods graphic EQ if you want to try to cut your guitars highs and lows before the amp. If I had that amp I would try every possible logical combination until I found what works best for me. Hope this helps some.
  2. When I search for it I have to use Windows 7 for OS to get it. Using Windows 10 will not find it, maybe Windows 8 would work but ​​I just use Windows 7 'cause it works. Here's a link to the direct download of Gearbox > http://line6.com/software/readeula.html?rid=3121.
  3. What kind of tube amp do you have and what In's and Out's does it have?
  4. OP, are you saying you played your rig like that and didn't hurt your electronics? That's amazing to me. If so, glad nothing happened.
  5. It can be confusing for sure since there's no right or wrong and several different impedances. It's nice when the right headphones are found. :)
  6. Cool glad the reset cleaned things up. Sure you could use your kit amp. It might not sound the way you want it to but the only way to find out is to try it. I've used my Jet City Picovalve which is 5 watt with my Spider Jam. I've also used my Spider Jam & DT50HD in stereo. Both ways sounded pretty good for me. If your 5 watt amp has an fx return plug your pods 1/4" output to it, if not plug in the front of your 5 watter and try to EQ it sound as good as you can get it.
  7. Yepper, Have you ever tried your pod in stereo? Do you have 2 amps or other powered speakers?
  8. I'm not real sure what the difference would be but I would think that since your running the pod stereo into the SJ which is ultimately mono your not going to get the full benefit but maybe your tone will sound a little thicker maybe. I would say your going to get pretty good tone just running the 1/4" Left Analog out into the Aux input. I do this all the time for a quick practice session with my HD500 or X3 Pro. Sometimes I'll take the output of the SJ out with a stereo insert cable and run that into the FX Return of my HD500 and it sounds pretty good when I digitally record monitoring with headphones. I also put my drummer pedal (Beat Buddy) in stereo the same way.
  9. No problem and Thanks for the reset reminder.
  10. Don't forget the Aux input has it's own EQ, Reverb, Delay and Comp in the settings part.
  11. You're Welcome. Cool, glad to hear that. If I have an issue in the future I'll try the reset. How is the reset done? lol
  12. Mine's the same age and still working good. Some years ago I had to install the latest firmware 'cause the drums wouldn't play. Maybe you should try the reset and if that don't work reinstall the firmware. I had a bug recently where when I plugged the guitar into the aux input when I changed the amp models they were affecting the Aux input. Very weird and I think I toggled the "mic recording/aux recording" button a couple of times and then set it to "Mic/Aux" then turned the amp off and on to get back to normal. So given the experiences I've had it can be buggy. I don't know why. I've been lucky for a while now. I do understand that ribbon cable connections inside the amp can come loose or get tarnished over time and need to be cleaned or just pulled off and pushed back on a few times to fix. I suppose excessive vibration can loosen them too.
  13. No sound? Hmmmm. The only thing I can think of is that the AUX input isn't set correctly. Press on the "input settings" button twice and you will see 3 available settings. Use the wheel or the nav button to select the Aux and then use the wheel to adjust it's level. I'm usually always at +0 db which is in the middle of it's range. You can just plug your guitar into the AUX input to see if it's working that way too.

    Oh No!

    Device after device after device. So many choices so little time and money, lol.
  15. I'm not sure about the Pod 2 'cause I never had one. I don't think your have too much problem. Remember the SJ has an input setting for the CD/mp3 jack and Aux input so keep that in mind if you haven't. Tap the "input level" button twice and you'll see adjustments can be made to the "mic input", "aux input" and "cd" input. I usually set these with the Master Volume knob maxed. When I use my HD500 with the SJ I have the SJ's master maxed, the input setting at "0" and I start with the Pod's Master below 50% and adjust up as needed. Of course your patch settings matter too but I think If you start out with a basic patch it should sound good. I'm just very familiar with the Pod 2. I got this from the manual for the Pod 2 http://line6.com/data/6/0a060b316ac34f0593b343dc6/application/pdf/POD%202.0%20Pilot's%20Guide%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20B%20).pdf Left & Right Output – These are balanced 1/4-inch TRS connectors, and ready to rock with pro +4 dBu balanced equipment. They will also work happily with unbalanced - 10 dBV equipment and standard guitar cables. If you are running POD mono, use the Left output. A.I.R. Mode – If you’re plugging your POD into a guitar amplifier to use POD as a “front end†to change the amp’s tone, flip the A.I.R. Mode switch to AMP, and set your amp for a clean tone. This defeats the speaker-microphone-room tone simulation of the A.I.R. processing. If you’re using POD in almost any other setup (plugging direct into a mixer, recorder, PA, power amplifier, etc.) you want the DIRECT position of this A.I.R. switch. ​ Output Level – Controls the overall output level of POD. Also sets the headphone level. This setting is not saved when you store settings into one of the POD’s memory locations. Changing the Output Level does not change your tone. So you can get the tone you want at any volume level.
  16. Yes it does. Insert cables are handy have around. I have one with 1/4" to 1/4" and use it with my HD500 to run pedals between the FX loop send and return on it.
  17. The pod can sound pretty good if you just run the 1/4" L mono out into the Aux in on the SJ. I do this all the time but I've got the SJ's Aux in Tone stack/Reverb and Delay/ Compressor settings set to the way I like. You could also use an insert cable like this. Insert Cable
  18. Maybe you could clarify exactly what you want to do, I'm a bit confused.
  19. Your welcome. It's the only one I could find that matched your description but I only searched for a few minutes. Hope it helps.
  20. Hi, Does it look like this? http://www.fullcompass.com/prod/230780-Line-6-21-12-0035
  21. Boy you said a handful there. I once had a girl say to me... Dammiit I just couldn't help myself.
  22. I'm wondering if the ribbon cable connection inside need to be cleaned or just pulled off and reconnected several times. This was what fixed the problem of SD card issues for at least one person I know of.
  23. I was kinda wondering that also, I got yeti feet too, lol.
  24. I like how Dom drops it and starts kicking and stepping on the controls, lol.
