  1. I'm here for the same question: I just bought a focusrite 4i4, and I Have a POD HD500X. I guess run the signal through the ¼" output of the pod or the cannon cable should be the same, if the jack cable is not so long. I mean, in terms of using the cabinet simulator, should be the same. Using the ¼" line output we should turn to LINE the output of the POD and LINE the input of the daw. BUT Which is the best configuration to select into the Utilities panel of the POD output page? Should I use the Studio/Direct mode? reading the manual, should be the best solution: "Typically the best option when connecting “Direct” to a mixing console or recording device. This signal includes “Studio” Cab Models, Mic Model and an “AIR” convolution to best emulate a mic’ed amp within a room." Now I don't use cab simulator on my patches, because I run the POD with a Line6 AMP DT25, so for a Studio/Direct mode do I need to setup patches to use while recording? instead of the patches used when used with the DT25? ALSO, I have a DI Box with a Cabinet Simulator function, I used it when we go live and you cannot bring the amp, and the sound guy ask you to go direct into the PA. I know that maybe I can reach the same result linkin the balanced output of the pod to the PA system, but as before...maybe I should have a set of cloned patches to do that with cabinet simulator...that's why I'm more fast linking a DI with a 4x12 simulator IR. Don't know it's pretty confusing.. what do you think guys?
  2. Ok guys, last time we tried with Cubase, but now we used Ableton, the behavior of the pod is the same: random behavior So this is a video of what is happening, devices and software are: PC with Windows 10 Ableton live 9.6 Audio device: Tascam US 16x08 Midi cable: brand new 15 meters (49 feet) Pod HD 500x We are NOT sending a Bank change to choose the setlist, we want to program change inside the current setlist, this is what happened: Video audio is Italian but I added subtitles
  3. Hi guys, yesterday I spent two hours with my drummer, trying to understand how to get this aim. Nothing to do. We saw some online videos on youtube on how to do, but on the video seems easier than the reality. We linked the pod midi input to the midi output of the sound device, Cubase see the audio device, we created a new midi track and followed the instructions. On the left, we selected Bank 0, then we added some program change with some values, the values was the "velocity" parameter. The pod started changing patches but randomly, if we put velocity to 0, I got patch 1A, if we raise the velocity number by number, the POD starts changing randomly the patches like this: 1A, 1C, 2A, 2C, etc. randomly it returns on 1A. Can't understand witch value link to a specific patch, do you guys know how do handle this? thank you.
  4. I solved changing the connector of the tubes on the board (not me but a technician) they were like rusted/oxidized
  5. yes you can, i have a majesty with magnets pickups and a piezo, a stereo cable that ends with two mono jack Y form. One into guitar input, one into aux input. then into the right channel in the signal path you put a loop fx, to 100% if i don't get wrong, so the 100% of that signal (piezo) go out through the send FX output, i use that to send into the PA the piezo, with a jack -> xlr cable. with the mixer at the end of the chain you are able to set the volume of both channels.
  6. thank you. hope there is not something really expansive to change :(
  7. i live in italy, how should i try to find an authorised repair?
  8. Hello guys, i have this frustrating noise with the DT25, i'm so tired to hear this noise when i stop playing for a while. Tubes are new matched EH EL84, biased at 23 and 27, but i had this problem also before changing the tubes. I thought that changing the tubes the problem disappear, but it has not. You can see the behaviour in this video: do you have any suggestion? thank you.
  9. I went back to el84 biased around 24 and 27
  10. ok guys, as you suggested, i replaced the EL844 with the EH EL84, as advised by line6 also. Now i'm biasing, i get 27 on the V3 and 24 on the V2, is that acceptable? or one tube is defective? i bought 4 matched tubes. Thank you. Marco
  11. ok thank you, so it's better i'm doubling the patches because i guess sometime i will need to play both the pickups and piezo through the L6Link6
  12. that means that if you don't connect any standard jack on the R output, the piezo signal goes automatically through the L6Link?
  13. what should be the difference between your method and mine? just what connector is used? balanced out cannon vs jack send output?
  14. i said a fool, unfortunately (or luckily) the OUTPUT L6Link Left/right is not a global parameter, but is a patch parameter. This means that i cannot do exactly what i said before, but i do need to change all the mixers in the patches to channel A all left, channel B all right and set the output to left to the DT AMP and right to the PA. This because if i keep the channels A on the mixer to center, also distorted sounds and crunch would go both through the AMP and the PA, and i don't want that.
