  1. Do you have any patches I could try as a starting point?
  2. It is set to studio/direct. And I have started with simple patches. I've built ones from scratch that was literally just an amp and cab and it still sounds muddy. I'm going to try headphones later today just to make sure but it just sounds terrible.
  3. Variax (VDI) --> POD HD500 (Studio/Direct) XLR --> ALTO TS212 (XLR) I have tried using ground lift on both, not using ground lift on both, using the contour button, tweaking the patch, removing bass from the amp and cab. nothing seems to be working. The only patches that sound good are the ones that are completely clean but even those sound like they have a little too much bass.
  4. I am using a Variax (JTV 89) into my HD500 via VDI out to an ALTO TS212. It just sounds bad. I feel like there has to be something I'm doing wrong. any heavy distortion just sounds horrible and flat like I'm playing through a $15 amp from Walmart. Anyone got any suggestions? I am currently running 2.62 and have the HD pack with all of the cool metal amps. It's kinda bumming me out that I can't get this thing dialed in.

  6. Ok so I traded in the KRK for an ALTO TS212. My only complaint is my patches sound muddy and have way too much bass. Does anyone have any experience with this setup and could give me some pointers?
  7. You guys are awesome. Thanks everyone for all of the responses. I think I'm gonna check it out this weekend.
  8. For the price, it seems like this may be the smarter route. It's only about $50 more than what I spent on the 1 monitor so I may just return the monitor and pick up one of these instead.
  9. So would this be a better option? http://www.guitarcenter.com/Alto/Truesonic-TS212-12-2-Way-Powered-Speaker-1500000000520.gc?pfm=item_page.rr1|ClickCP
  10. So I should return it? I've read a few threads that speak highly of running into studio monitors. My problem is right now I have the DT50 2x12 combo but it's way too loud for a house setting and doesn't sound great at low volumes. So I'd like to have something that sounds good at bedroom volumes. My son plays electric drums (for the same reason) and can control the volume on his amp for the drums. I don't mind returning it if it's not going to achieve what I want but can someone suggest a better option?
  11. I just purchased a KRK Rokit 6 G3 that I'd like to connect to my HD500 to basically use instead of an amp. I'm confused on what cable to use and what output to plug into. The KRK has the following inputs: 1. TRS Balanced 1/4" 2. XLR Balanced 3. RCA unbalanced I'd like to have stereo to the single monitor if possible. The guy at Guitar center sold me a 1/4" Y cable but it sounds really quite and not that great when I plug it into both outputs on the back and into the single balanced input of the monitor. I am also not very sure on what settings to tweak on the POD HD500 or the monitor to hopefully dial it in. I was under the impression that this monitor would be pretty loud (I don't play out but I jam with my son on his drums so I'd like to be able to keep up with his drums). So far I'm not impressed but I feel like it could simply be because I have it connected incorrectly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
