  1. Hi! I realized that you can place the amp sim after the mixer block. How would this differ from having it before the mixer? (POD HD500X) I noticed a bit more distortion in the GK bass amp sim I'm using while placing it after. If I place it after the mixer it also seems to make it possible to have two seperate signal chains (or one divided) inte the amp sim. Would this make it possible to use this setup for a "clean blend" for a distortion pedal going into the bass amp? This would be creat since i now have to use a dual amp setup with one clean and one dirty for distortion settings with bass. It's complicated to always having to count for two amps when changing minor EQ and takes a lot of DSP. /Danne
  2. I own a Variax Bass and I gig with it regularly, at least once a week. My problem is, the dynamics of the A string and G string seem reduced while i play. I've tried using my EQ to boost the dynamics of these strings but that also increases the other two strings. Can anyone help me before I contact Line 6?
  3. Hi guys! Just got my new Alto TS115a active monitor that i planned to use with my bass guitar through my Pod HD500x. The problem is that it is "farting out" while playing the low E-string (tuned to drop D) allthough, all the other strings sound just fine. The patch is created with an AKG k240 headset and sound great through them. Is the Alto TS115a faulty or are my patches in need of serious tweeking? I was thinking that the Alto maybe just couldn't handel the low bass freq, allthough it's rated for 48 Hz -18 kHz (@ - 10 dB) and I've red on several forums that both low-tuned guitar and bass players use them as a FRFR speaker. I tried to do some bass cut in the cab-settings but the "distortion" doesn't really go away. I also tried to lower the amp-sim's bass knob, but the problem only goes away when it's down quite low, and then there's not enough bass.... Any help would really be appreciated! /Danne
  4. Hey, I've recently switched from guitar to bass in my band and because I've already got an HD500 I figured I'd just keep on using it. However I feel there is no need to use any amp models as my amp sounds just fine so I'm just using my POD as a multi-fx unit. I'm getting some good results so far but I've noticed that there are many more people who seem to know a lot more about this gear than me so I just thought I'd start this topic. Anyone else using a POD for bass FX only? BTW, despite my low post numbers and reputation, I've been using a POD for a few years so I have a pretty comprehensive knowledge of what I'm doing.
  5. Hello everyone, Is it possible to record bass guitar as midi in logic pro x? Thanks in advance for your advice ;)
  6. Hello Is there a way to set up a distortion/overdrive pedal with "clean blend" for bass guitar with HD500X? I'm using the "GK" - amp sim from the bass pack and really liking the clean tone from it. For distortion i'm using the "vintage Rat" distortion pedal that sound pretty good. The problem is that when doing that I'm "loosing" all my bass tone soo to say. I would like to "blend" them both together like on a real bass distortion pedal. Is this possible? Any help would great! /Danne
  7. I haven't been able to find anything on here yet...but, would the FX100 work with an electric bass too? I've seen in the tone editor that there is a bass drive pedal, etc, but I know you usually shouldn't use guitar effects and amps with basses. Seeing as how the FX100 is digital, I thought it might work, but would rather ask first to make sure I don't screw up mine. Thanks for the help!
  8. Hey everybody! I'm actually in trouble finding the best amp and the settings I should use to have the perfect bass tone when I play 'Factory Of Faith' by RHCP... I have a Line6 POD UX2, and a Squier Precision Bass Special, with a Jazz bass mic and a P-Bass one. I already looked at the customtone section, but haven't find the tone I would. Any tips regarding the amp and the Bass / Treble / Mid settings which could be the best in the POD UX2? All suggestions welcome! Thanks!
  9. Hi! I'm having a really hard time with creating good bass patches with my pod hd500x. Since i mostly jam along with Tool songs these days, the sound i'm trying to replicate is Justin chancellors tone on the 10,000 days record. I do have the bass model pack and i'm getting decent results with the "G cougar 800" amp sim parallell with a dirty amp. Any good tips on settings or a bass patch to sett me in the right path? I'm also playing with headphones (good ones) and using a Fender Jbass if that matters. /Danne
  10. As the title says, when I select an amp model and then begin to either change the drive or bass settings, the setting I put seems to be affecting the amp model selector - ie if I choose the 'metal' channel and start turning the gain to 9 o clock, 'Class A' is being selected on the amp models. This hasn't happened before, and it's incredibly annoying. Is there a way for this to be fixed?
  11. Hey everybody. I've been trying to find a definitive answer to this... I don't know too much about amplifiers, but I do know that plugging a bass into a guitar amp can damage the amp. I'm interested in plugging in a bass into the spider IV 75W, to mess with some effects. Normally I wouldn't expect this to be possible, but since pitch glide lets you pull down like two octaves, it seems like it may be possible. Is plugging a bass into this amp a bad idea? And is using a super low pitch glide on a normal guitar liable to damage the amp? I get little nervous using it sometimes... My second question is similar, but not exactly the same. I have an Alesis digital drum kit, which only has an AUX out (1/8", no quarter inch). Would it be safe to plug it into the *aux* jack (noting that the bass drum trigger gets pretty low)? My thinking is that it is a separate speaker that has a much wider range. It wouldn't sound good, but it would at least give me a decent speaker output. And on that note, would it be safe to plug it into the quarter inch jack, using an adapter? Thank you!
  12. Hi All, I'm hoping to start a thread here on using the Firehawk with a bass guitar. What settings and amps are you using to get a really nice bass sound? Cheers
  13. Okay guys, I know other threads have been started about this, but I haven't gotten any answers from those, so here's the deal. I'm using a Mesa Boogie M9 Carbine head, and two SWR Goliath II cabinets, with a Yamaha RBX6JM bass. I wanted to use the POD HD500X for effects only. It appears the only way to connect it to the amp is with this "4 cable method," which I have tried. Problem is, all of the knobs on my amp become useless when I do this, like it's just a power amp. Can someone just tell me everything I have to do to get it like this: -complete control of amp head, with Mesa M9 tone -good sounding effects from the POD -plenty loud enough, and I can use the amp head volume Basically, use the 500x just exclusively for effects, leaving volume and tone without effects to my amp head. Can I do this with an HD500x? If not, what piece of equipment would do this? Basically I just want to have the closest thing to a pedal board without actually getting several different pedals and putting them on the board. Thanks in advance
  14. I just plugged my bass guitar into the Line 6 Pocket Pod 2.0. I get a lot of noise and not a lot of bass. I've looked through the settings too. Am I not doing something right?
  15. I just checked the *new* bass models on the HD 500 and thought: Hey, what about using the L3t as a bass amp? The L2t is no good choice because of the missing low end, right? Has anyone out there tried this already and likes to share the experience?
  16. My Bass Pod xt live has taken to jumping into the amp tone control display all by itself. Seeing the display is not the problem, but the reason it does it, is that it thinks that a tone control has moved. This means that all of my tone settings change to whatever the knobs are set to. It will typically do it a second after I select/reselect a tone. Sometimes it settles for a few minutes, but I never know when it going to change. I've tried tapping around the controls and it does not seem to be vibration ( unless I really thump it) How can I stop it?
  17. I use a Mark Bass Head + a cab for my bass rig I want to use my POD X3L mostly for tuning and some effects here and there. If I hook up my bass directly to X3 input (no amps of effects) does that affect the sound somehow? Or is X3 true by-pass? Maybe I can connect X3 as Return Send? Thanks!
  18. Okay this is a long story, i am a guitarist, but i am needed to play bass in a band also i was wondering if with the hd pro x i could get some nice crunchy bass tones? I do not own this product yet but i intend on buying it. I am not even sure if the bass will work on the hd pro x Please help..
  19. Can a "Bass Emulator tone" be build with the AMPLIFi? Like in the POD HD Desktop, there are a few good ones in the cloud for PODs (I'm not bass player, and don't wanna buy a bass-guitar)
  20. I recently purchased a GAP Pre73 MKII and a Shure SM7. I'd like to use both of these to record vocals through my POD HD500, but I'm a little confused as to the proper way to set this up. Here's what I'm doing: My SM7 is going into the Pre73's Mic In via an XLR cable, and then the Pre73's output is going through a balanced TRS cable to the POD's Aux in. I read in the manual that the Aux In is unbalanced. Will this negatively affect my signal, or if I use a balanced TRS cable, will the signal stay balanced? Is there a better way to set this up, or a special configuration I need to use? When I connect the SM7 to the POD directly, via XLR to the POD's Mic In, the level in my DAW seems great and the mic is sufficiently loud (and the SM7 is a notoriously quiet mic). When I use my aforementioned setup, the level in my DAW is very low, even though I have both knobs on my Pre73 cranked to max. This has led me to believe I am doing something wrong. For what it's worth, I am using high-quality Mogami cables. As a somewhat-related sidenote, is it possible to run my Pre73 as part of an "fx loop"? Would there be a benefit to this? I'd like to use the Pre73 to warm up my bass and I figure that could be a way to do it, or should I simply plug the bass into the Pre73, and then the Pre73 into the POD? Thanks for reading this and thanks for the help. The world of pro audio sometimes befuddles my brain, so I really appreciate it.
  21. Any ideas why? :( Yesterday I purchased it, it shows up on my license manager, but none of the bass amps or cabinets are available in my POD Farm.. I restarted my PC several times and updated all sections in Monkey, still i can't get access to it. both, UX1 and PC are authorized, I have metal and classics addons working just fine (got it with the Toneport from previous user) I was hoping to use it for rec session today.. / Toneport UX1, POD Farm 1.12, Bass Expansion
  22. Has anyone used a POD HD pro (Or pro X) for a live bass rig? Did it work out? I know I can get an awesome bass tone for recording with it, but does that translate over in the live setting with a venue sound system in your experiences? When I used it at my last show ( I play lead guitar normally) I had a very thin and bassless tone, but I think that was a few too many eqs that caused that.
  23. Hi everyone, I wondered if anyone else has encountered this issue the bass podxt pro. I am currently using it as a digital effects unit in logic pro 9, via my spdif in and out on my focusrite pro 14 interface. Essentially when you use the external insert effect plug in when you send the bass pod a stereo or mono signal, it returns it in stereo with the left channel effected by the bass pod, and the right channel without. Is this supposed to happen? However, when I plug the bass pod via usb, and still use the focusrite as the audio interface, it returns the stereo send, this time as a mono return. None of this is mentioned in the manual (obviously), and havent found any other posts on the forum about it. What you have encountered? Is this supposed to happen? And is there a way to fix this, other than within logic (which is a pain in the back-side)? I need my usb port free for hard drives! Thanks for reading, Matt
  24. Hey guys, Check out this recording I did today using the HD500x, JTV-69, and Variax 700 bass with Addictive Drums 2. Tell me what you think. Thanks. https://soundcloud.com/chris-arnold/song-idea-762014
  25. Hi friends, I have PODX3 bean and PODx3 floor units, both which have a bunch of bass presets and my own creations that sound pretty good (at home) Have any of you used X3 using bass models to play live shows? Your experiences? What speaker/amp do you recommend? Any limitations? Basically I am trying to figure out if I should buy a real bass amp or use my X3s bass amp modeling? Thank you! Seb
